Impending Game Auction on eBay
A number of my visitors know of my ongoing love-hate relationship with eBay, and several of them have actually purchased games from me over the years through past eBay auctions. For that reason, several of my readers have requested that I provide a little advance notice of my future game auctions, and the titles that I plan to offer for sale. In deference to those readers, and on the off chance that I could be preparing to offer a game that might be of interest to some of my visitors, I am posting the following list of game titles that I will be putting up on eBay over the next day or so:
- COAG, JÉNA (1996) UP, COMPLETE, EX/NEAR MINT
An unpunched, and excellent/near mint copy of JÉNA, which is a historical simulation, at the operational level, of Napoleon’s invasion of Saxony during France’s war with Prussia and Russia, in 1806. The game was designed by Ed Wimble and published in 1996 by Clash of Arms Games (COAG).
- SPI, KOREA (1971) PUNCHED, COMPLETE, VG/EX
A punched, complete, and very good/excellent copy of KOREA: The Mobile War 1950-51, which is an operational level game of combat during the first year of the Korean War, 1950-51. KOREA was designed by James F. Dunnigan and published by Simulations Publications, Incorporated (SPI) in 1971.
- SPI, LEIPZIG (1972) P, COMPLETE, VG/EX
PLUS THE GAME VARIANT “LEIPZIG REVISED”
A punched, complete, and very good/excellent copy of LEIPZIG, which is a grand tactical level simulation of warfare in the Age of Napoleon. The game chronicles the French Emperor’s last desperate attempt to retain his empire in central Europe in the face of a growing coalition of hostile and reactionary monarchies. LEIPZIG was designed by James F. Dunnigan, and published in 1972 by Simulations Publications, Incorporated (SPI).
- CGC, OVERLORD, 2nd Ed. (1977) P, COMPLETE, VG/EX
A punched, complete, and very good/excellent copy of OVERLORD, which is a regimental-level simulation of the critical battles between Axis and Allied forces over control of the beaches and hedgerows of Normandy, during June-August 1944. OVERLORD was originally designed by John Hill and published by the Conflict Game Company (CGC), in 1974. This Second Edition version was extensively reworked by Frank Chadwick and republished by Conflict Games (CGC) in 1977.
- GDW, THEIR FINEST HOUR: EUROPA V (1976) PP, COMPLETE, EX
A partially-punched, complete, and excellent copy of THEIR FINEST HOUR: EUROPA V, which is a historical game of the air war between Germany and England during the early months of World War II, following the fall of France. This GDW title actually includes three different games: THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN; the EUROPA Campaign Game; and SEA LION. THEIR FINEST HOUR was designed by Marc W. Miller and published by Game Designer’s Workshop (GDW) in 1976.
As a special Bonus Feature, this auction also includes, in addition to the standard SPI game, a copy of Steve Stomi’s excellent game variant, LEIPZIG REVISED, complete with variant rules, set-up instructions, and mounted and trimmed variant game counters.
This list only represents the first installment in a wide-ranging collection of games from different publishers that I will be offering on eBay over the coming weeks and months. I hope that, in the course of these different auctions, at least some of you find titles that would make worthwhile additions to your collections.
