Catacombs set for sale to boost Game Tiles pledge 1 Year ago  
First, some background: I don’t play RPGs at all really, and I only stumbled on DF through a Gencon review post over at Heroscapers (which is as close to a game that I actually do play these days). I have sons ages 4 and 1 1/2, so I figured that DF would just HAVE to be useful and fun and awesome at some point, so I started buying a few sets here and there. My older son and I take them out once in a while, put them together, have Heroscape figures chase each other down some passages, and that’s about it. He knows he has to be super super super careful. I love having them around, but we’re not really taking full advantage of DF at this point.

So now I learn about the much anticipated DF Kickstarter, and I’m completely blown away. The new Dwarvenite material is both less expensive AND much more durable?! For parents with kids, this is a complete double whammy of awesome. Once my Game Tiles arrive, BOTH my sons are going to have freedom to throw tiles around, build rooms, passages, and random piles as much as they want. I am just incredibly thrilled about Game Tiles, and I cannot wait to see how the line grows in the years to come. In fact, I’m going to go whole hog, and start transferring my existing Master Maze into Game Tiles.

Here’s where I start to get relevant. I’ve been saving up for the Kickstarter before we knew details, so I had money in the budget for my initial pledge. The diagonals are so fun and useful that I had to throw in the add-on (I know it’s not actually available yet, but whatever), but that’s eaten up all my currently available funds. I have every expectation that a curved wall add-on will eventually be available, and the way this thing is going, who knows what other wonders may be up for preorder? Alternate paints, passages, stairs, columns, or even just another few sets. I keep refreshing that stupid Kickstarter page so many times a day, I KNOW I’ll end up putting more money in this thing. So, yeah, I need money.

I have a Catacombs set in wonderful condition -- it’s only been taken out and delicately played with 2 or 3 times. They’re not limited edition, and I know they’ll be back, but they’re out of stock now, and I know ebay would serve up a sizable profit if I sold it. Still, though, I’d rather do it within the community if I can. I’m hoping somebody here really wants a set now, and doesn’t mind paying a little extra to get it before waiting for the restock. I’d like $175 plus shipping, and please keep in mind that every penny will end up getting pledged to the Game Tiles Kickstarter. I’ll ship it Fedex so it will be fully insured. I’m also happy to ship it before payment, so you can see it yourself -- although the downside of this is that I’d like to deal with an established member of the community so I don’t have to worry about trusting you. Being as I’m (ahem) not very established myself around here, I figure this (I ship, then you pay) would work out best.

So, in sum -- amongst people who have a reputation to uphold around here, anybody interested in a Catacombs set for $175 plus shipping, with all the proceeds to boost the Game Tiles campaign?

I would love to buy this from you.

I could paypal you in advance, but using "goods and services" as protection in case. Or alternately, an online escrow service. It'd have to have the packing box tho. Those things are way too delicate to survive otherwise, I think.

Sold! Send me an email at davinmama *at* yahoo ^dot^ com, and we'll make arrangements.
Don't worry, I'll send it in the original styrofoam packaging, in the original Catacombs white box, and then overall packed in another bigger box, just like the good folks at DF do. Thanks!

Stetch goal add-on packs, here I come!

Congrats to both of you! This is a win, win, win. Nararabbit gets Catacombs, davinh gets cash for Kickstarter add ons and we, the other backers and collectors, get that much closer to the next stretch goal!

Truly this is an awesome forum.
