Dwarven Forge Collection For Sale - $8000 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
My Dwarven Forge Collection is now up for sale. I'm asking $8,000.00 for this wonderful grouping of DF goodies. The collection contains many out of print items, from sets to scores of individual items which are no longer available.

I believe the only items I "marked up" a slight amount are the DoE R&P sets. I didn't mark up any of the other OOP items.
While some currently available items were purchased at prices of days of old ($60), I've listed those sets at their current values ($99).

Jeff Martin previously approved me to post this, should the need arise. Thank you, Jeff.

Please see the attached spreadsheet for details.

Note: I just checked my spreadsheet (2/5/11) and discovered that I had added may items at the end but forgot to update the range being totalled. I've listed the prices as they would sell directly from Dwarven Forge today, without any markup for out-of-print items. That total is $9166.00. This is already a "discounted" price, as there is no markup for OOPs. $8500 or so for this collection would be a good bargain (if you can afford it!).

Thank you,

John K. Weaver

P.S. Would prefer local pick-up. Could drive up to half way or ~400 miles to deliver, whichever is less. I live in Garden City, Michigan 48135.

Sorry to hear you're abandoning DF!

Re:Dwarven Forge Collection For Sale - $8000 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
Yikes. Me too. I'd prefer to think of it not as abandoning DF, but as investing in my family.

One of the major choices in my hands at this very moment is whether or not to go to Iraq as a Contractor. Looks like I'd end up in Afghanistan for about 2-4 months as well. While a year over there would pay down all of our debt (except the first mortgage) and possibly leave me several thousand in the bank, my soul seems to be more at peace with the option to stay and weather the financial storm as a family unit.
I believe that selling the DF for the amount listed would, along with a substantial tax return, enable us to pay off two credit cards (freeing up $300 per month for the next credit card), set aside a 2-3 thousand as an emergency fund, and provide 1k for a vacation this year.
All in all, selling the DF sounds like the right choice for my family. I've been at peace with myself since deciding that selling the DF and staying at home could work.

I'm guessing you would have more luck selling this off bit by bit.

Sorry to hear about a fellow gamer having to sell up. Still, family comes first and when the good times return (and they will eventually - its just the econmic cycle) you can always buy a load more goodies!

If you do decide to carve up your collection and sell it off in small bits I would like to buy the set of 4 moveable MBS Shutters from you. (its about all I can afford at the moment given the cost of shipping stuff across the pond and the fact that taxes (VAT) has just gone up to 20% AND we have a pay freeze in the public sector this year.

If you are interested please tell me what you would like for the shutters.

Or you could just evil bay the lot? You would probably get more but it would be a lot of work.

I hope you're able to sell it as a lot, but I'm not very optimistic. That's an awfully substantial investment for someone to bite off all at once, unless it's a gaming store or something. Usually DF sucks you in one set at a time, until you've spent $8000 before you realized it. :-)

Weaver,

I agree with Brett, I am a new collector and it's already taken ahold of me! But that is a lot to invest but I wish you the best of luck! If you have to piece it out I am sure a lot of s would buy some of it. I've dealt with a few df board members and they are great guys! Good luck, but let us know what you decide!

I hope that eventually you will have all and more back. If you decide to split up the set I would like a shot at the following:
1 Cavern
1 Cavernous Lake Expansion
1 Medieval Building Set
3 6" Long Passageway
1 6" Straight Cavernous Passage

Hi John,

Good luck with the sale and I admire your priorities.

As I'm in Australia (and alreaady have a substantial collection) I can't be a buyer but would be interested in the bombanet pieces if you decide to break it up.

Cheers
