Was finishing up preliminary Halloween costume shopping for the kids when saw this sitting in the showcase. Figured that because it looked old it would be unreasonably priced. To my surprise was usual game price.

box a bit tatty and missing 1 blue counter - but that's why they had spares included.

A pretty fun find at a garage sale for 0.50c.

We've already played a 2P and a 3P game.

Missing all (8) the walls that start on the side, unfortunately.

Anyone got 8 extra?

$2 at DI

Box is in decent shape but quite a bit of surface wear. Inside... 2 unpunched boards and cards and bits still in shrink!! It seems one board was punched so I bagged those bits. It's complete and unplayed! And apparently not that common.

Found this a couple days ago at GW for $2.99. I don't need another Travel Scrabble game, but I couldn't pass up the little wood tiles. The travel version that I currently have has plastic ones. This is complete. Are these smaller tiles desirable to the crafters?

$0.50 for a deck of 79 cards

Probably NOT the game pictured. I browsed through several games but did not find a match. Location cards have a map on the back, other cards (weapons and enemies) have the eye of Sauron. The face of the cards have a dark blue border.

Any help identifying these is greatly appreciated.

Found another one of these at Red Racks for $1.48. I didn't take time to inventory as it seemed near complete and I only needed it to complete another one. I got it home and after checking found that it is complete! Except for the pawns shake Oh well, I have those from the other game so I guess that this one is now complete and that one is the parts copy. Do these ever come with the rules?
