Wow.Welcome to the modern age.Everything is rare and ultra collectible I guess.This adventure was great fun and was WAY better than the one in the book, but $140 dollars worth of fun?
I'm not sure how the GM's get their packs of materials and stuff, but I'm sure they didn't have to pay for them.I would really like to have this adventure for home use to re-introduce my old group to playing again, but at these prices, I guess it will never happen.
There are a couple of more up on Ebay for the low, low starting bid of $99.Hurry!! Your Free Market Economy won't wait long!!
I guess this is why one of the Premier Game stores I contacted in my area said they would be running the Gamma World Game Day Event and then the GM backed out at the last minute because " the store would need to give up one Gamma World game kit for him to run it. Unless they sold several to make up for the cost it wasn't in their best interest". Obviously he had the Game Day materials on hand, or he wouldn't have told me he was all set to run it.Can't shake the feeling that his GM kits and the exclusive cards went straight to the highest bidder.
I had to find a Comic Book shop that was also running a Game Day event and it was less than satisfactory as they weren't as well versed in the game as the dedicated hobby shop would have been.Still had fun, though, and got my cards, but I read all of the cool posts about the great games that were run everywhere else and I feel a little bit jealous.
Sure would like to try my hand at running my group through this, but unless WOTC releases this for download or something, it won't happen because I can't afford such ultra-rare exclusives as this adventure obviously has become on the first day of its wide release.
