Re: (TFT) For Sale: Fighting Fantasy and Metagaming odds & end

Message text written by INTERNET:tft@brainiac.com
I can't tell who wrote what above, but here's my response to the guy 
looking for stuff:

I've got a copy of Chitin: I and Ice War.  They're in good shape, though 
the counters are cut.  However, I'm not really interested in parting with 
them.  No, I don't say that to try to jack up the "trading" price.  It 
does mean I would like a lot for them (Chitin more than Ice War) -- more 
than they're probably worth, and probably more than what you could find 
them for elsewhere.

But, like you, I'm a collector, and I'd hate to see a collection go 
unfulfilled because I'm greedy, which is why I'm responding.  Please try 
as hard as you can to find those two titles elsewhere.  However, if you 
get to a point where you just can't seem to track them down, let me know 
(assuming you're even interested in copies that have cut counters).  
Seriously, I expect to ask for way too much in return, so I'm also going 
to hope you find them for less elsewhere.

Yeah, I know this was a strange email, but as I said, I don't want to 
part with my extra copies, yet I'd hate for that to keep you from filling 
out the collection.

The guy who wrote that was Michael. That would be me. I understand

I took a little flack on this board because I send some strange emails
myself. I feel pretty much the same way, except that I would only offer to
trade games to the needy rather than sell them. I'd much rather have a game
I want than money. If someone's only going to offer me money, then I'd much
rather keep the game!

I know just how you feel and can appreciate it. There's a gaming convention
coming in February 14th  (after all - what else is there for gamers to do
then!) and so I'll look for them there - in the meantime, then Internet is
pointing me to some fairly good deals. (Hi Brett!).

So thank you - if  you'd rather keep them, I'd rather they stay in a good
home! But if your still interested, It wouldn't hurt to tell me your price!
 Also, if you want something you can't find, I have pretty good luck
finding rare games, so let me know what you need! Thanks again.
