But look on the bright side...

Last week, I went to my local library's Friends group book sale in search of some cheap mystery novels or YA books that I wanted to read. Imagine my surprise when I came across a pair of Mentzer-era D&D box sets, still sealed in shrink-wrap and basically perfect, apart from a triangular-shaped box dent on the back of the Basic set. Total cost: $2 each.

Thank you, old ladies from the Friends of the Library group. You didn't quite know what you had. Now should I open them or leave them in their pristine sealed condition for a rainy day?


  1. I think you are honor bound to throw them on the floor are roll around on them. It's wallerin' time. :)

  2. Nice find. I am surprised they kept them all this time. They had to have had probably twenty to thirty sales (maybe not but mine average a few a year or more) since those came out. I wonder if they were donated with the person thinking they would sell them in some other manner.

  3. I am so jealous. I bet it must sound like church bells ringing when you shake those boxes and hear all the goodness inside rattling around! *sigh*
