Thank you very much for your fast replies.

Logically, the stock and the prices without discount are very suspicious, but now that you have discovered there is a copy-paste of Ebay Ads, I directly dismiss it as a trusted website. The Internet is full of cheats...


Golden Rule:
If the web does not support paypal reject it without consideration.  ;)

Should the same be said of Amazon? ;)
That's an exception. We talking about UNKNOWN websites. Maybe I should be more specific. Hahaha
Probably more safety sites of very common companies there have not paypal. But PayPal is security and an important point to trust in an UNKNOWN website.
Everybody knows that Amazon has his payment system similar to PayPal, 'Amazon pay'. The 'competitor' of PayPal. But PayPal extends around almost everything in internet and Amazon doesn't. But that is another question.... XD

Welcome to the forums!

A general rule of thumb (this thumb ---> :(n)) is that if it seems too good to be true it usually is! Most people aren't as dumb as they like to think we are, and if they're selling something for significantly less than it might go for on eBay then the chances are that they already know this and would otherwise be selling on eBay if they were able to.

Totally true!  :(y)

Happy birthday to one of my most-feared opponents and master tactician of Inns & Cathedrals: Leven! :(y)
Thank you Dan for your kind words.
The relevant news that I can share with you is that since my birthday I'm a proud owner of a new edition basegame (so my resistance of 5 years is over). Still not my favourite but it will be my first choice for practice games as it's the official edition at tournaments.

Happy belated birthday, Leven!

After this epiphany :o with the new edition, do you have plans to convert any of your fan expansions to C2? Your new base game must feel so lonely...

Cheers!

I won't post any specific prices in case my wife ever reads this. Divorces can be so expensive nowadays, and I'd rather put the money towards more Carc stuff...

I've probably spent as much as anyone else on some of the rarer items including a first edition with 70pt score track, Le Sac, Mueller edition (in wrap) and RGG gold edition (in wrap), base game + CC1 edition (in wrap), the original teacher meeples in all six colours (remember those?), Cathars, Tunnels, Plague  (all with magazines of course), Russian tiles, Spiel tiles and so on. I've never added it all up, and I'm not sure I want to! :-[

It isn't just about the money though. Willem was spot on earlier when he said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that people collect what matters to them and everyone's collection is different and unique because of this. I've collected a lot of things, but there are some things I've ignored, such as the first 4 BBs, as I'm just not interested in them for whatever reason.

A lot of my collection hasn't cost me anything thanks to a lot of very kind and generous people here, and I'm proud to be able to say that I've helped others to fill any gaps in their collections in the same way too. For example, I've had two sets of the Russian tiles for free, so was able to give one set away to someone else here. Generosity goes a long way!

That's right. Each one adapts his collection to his tastes and preferences. For example, the BB5 is indispensable. The rest of Big Boxes are absurd unless you have OCD and need all BB so you don't have an anxiety attack. Although I think we all here have OCD to a greater or lesser extent hahaha.

General / Re: Replica tiles sets on Ebay
« Last post by DrMeeple on Today at 10:12:42 AM »
I have notice that there is a seller - with UK address - selling replica tiles sets. It appears that these are 'home made' copies of normal expansions. I assume that he is buying blank cards and copying  the tile sets on to these. Is the legal?

Nope. You should report the seller to eBay and maybe they will do something.

Nice job pointing it out! :(y) :)

Then you have to denounce Aliexpress. Good luck with this!  ;D
