Would be great to have in the collection, but I think the Buy It Now price is a bit excessive !

£500 sounds like a reasonable offer, they usually go for around 50 to 60 quid each on fleabay

I must be a lucky SOB. I picked them up from carboot last year from a trader. The only one missing was backgammon. Including the Interface 2. I paid the pricely sum £17 for the lot. The only thing wrong with them is that psssst and chess have numbers written in pencil on the instructions.

@Blackmaiden - damn good price you got them for.

That's just a shocking case of over-charging, but it's a seller's market with complete collections like that.  Heard tales (tall or otherwise) that someone on WoS paid that much for a  pristine set with an Interface 2.

It was this that made me chuckle!!

He should retitle that auction "Help pay for my emigration"

Hmm .. last time I looked £1350 wasn't "little cost" :)

Well, aren't those two different lots? The latter mentions a few instruction leaflets are missing, while the first one pictured every game as complete. But yes, if seller #2 saw that the lot sold for £800, it is an incentive to try and sell an identical set for even more, and have room to reduce the asking price a few hundred pounds without feeling like he's making a loss of it.

The artwork on Planetoids and Chess is great.
