I am one of the lucky few who was able to get 2 copies of this extremely rare boardgame. It's one of the 1500 English copies produced worldwide and it is still boxed in the cardboardbox, not even unpacked. I have paid a lot of money for both copies and would part with one of them for 2500 dollar or at least make me a decent offer . I know this is a lot of money but these copies will only gain in value as they are extremely rare and wanted. I have even seen prices of 5000 dollar for a copy.

I was one of the many who did not get a copy of this when it first came out. I added the Collector's Edition to my ebay watch list a few years ago. Every time one goes up for sale on ebay, I am notified. I have seen them listed for as much as $5,000, however, I have never seen one sell for more than $2,600. Keep in mind that you can list an item for as much as you want, but that doesn't mean it will sell. I recently watched one go for just over $1500, and a few days later another one came up for auction, starting at $900, with a "Buy It Now" price of $1270. I snatched that sucker up for around $1300 (with shipping). Whether you're buying or selling, I recommend watching similar items on ebay and keep track of what people are listing them for, but also what they are actually selling for. I have seen a ton of these come up for auction but never sell. Do your homework, and when one becomes available for a reasonable price, get it. If you're a seller, see what they're going for and then list for a reasonable price. Keep in mind that the holiday season is a great time for sellers, and summer is a great time for buyers. I would also expect the price to go up a bit after the Hobbit movies come out, as this will kindle people's interest. Good luck to all sellers and seekers of the game, and remember to be patient!
