As I mentioned elsewhere I am collecting roleplaying games (of the pen & paper variety). I probably by now own more than 400 such games and the number is growing whenever I spot an interesting new or old game.
I’m also very keen on collecting old games from the early days of the genre. I already own quite a few old gems (e.g. a saddle-stitched 1st edition of Starfaring in mint condition or a Spawn of Fashan replica) but there are a number of obscure games that so far have eluded me.
If you happen to own an original pen & paper version of one of the following games and you don’t need it anymore, please contact me – I’m definitely interested in buying it for a decent price (no fantasy collector prices – I’m not that crazy):
- Creeks & Crawdads (Martin Costa, Crustacium Games, 1986): The hilariously sounding game of playing mutated crawdads after the final war)
- Realms of Yolmi (Ken Black and Marshall Rose, 1st edition, West Coast Games, 1977): The title just sounds incredible to me. And I also would be interested in the 2nd edition by Avant-Garde Simulations Perspectives (ASP) from 1978.
- Monsters! Monsters! (Ken St. Andre with Jim “Bear” Peters, Metagaming 1976): Tunnels & Trolls always was a brilliant move but the idea of playing monsters in a dungeon… from 1976. Awesome.
- Boot Hill 1st Edition (Brian Blume and Gary Gygax, TSR, 1975): I own the other editions and strongly believe Boot Hill 3rd edition to be the best western RPG ever designed the gunfight system is simply spectecular) but I never got my hands on a 1st edition.
- Phase VII (Dennis Drew II, Cheshire Games, 1982)
- 9th Generation (Jeff Siadek, Jeff Siadek Enterprises, 1986): Since I’m a huge Gamma World fanboy I collect all post-apocalyptic games and this one still has been missing in my collection for a long time.
- Space Infantry (Daniel Douglas Hutto and Roger Allen Esnard, D&R Game Design, 1982)
Offers welcome… there is some room on my shelves to be filled by these games. And some day I hope to present all my babies in an online RPG museum. For the time being I have to recommend this wonderful place. See ya!
