Many years ago, someone claimed to know the editor of a gaming magazine who supposedly got a copy of DH in exchange for featuring another videogame on the cover of the magazine. But efforts to follow up were met with a lot of stonewalling, so I was dubious of the claim.

Thanks to Splain for restoring my faith in people. He inquired about the price, sent Paypal quickly, and let me know when the package arrived. Kudos to him!

JoePassive:

I'm a little confused. Maybe you can help me out. You posted that you were looking to buy a Waterworld cart between $70 and $90, so I fished mine out of storage, checked the condition, and tested it to be sure it worked. I then let you know I'd sell it for $85 - less than the top of your stated range. You then asked me for shipping cost to Israel, so I figured out a method to ship it safely, but cheaply, and mocked up the envelope so I could weigh it and price it. I then let you know I'd include shipping at the $85 price - no extra charge.

You didn't respond to that message for a couple of days, so I inquired again as to the status. At that point, you said you didn't really have the money to buy it.

So I'm kind of wondering what this posting was about. Why post an offer for something if you don't have the money for it?

In all fairness, you're not the only person on this board who has done this type of thing. Over the years, I've had numerous people ask me detailed questions about condition, agree to prices, ask me to work up shipping costs, and then either simply stop responding, or let me know they don't have any money. That's a lot of effort to go through when the buyer clearly had no intention of making a purchase. (And just to be clear, I'm ok when we don't agree on a price. I'm talking about people who agree to pricing, then just walk away.)

I love this board, and I've gotten more out of it than I can possibly give back, but frankly, I'm baffled by this behavior. Maybe you can shed some light on it - that'd help me out. Thanks.

Craps is a very difficult game to learn. I watched someone trying to teach it, and it was mind-boggling how many rules there were. Who in the heck even came up with something like that???

Cool! Not my favorite game, but it's pretty unique. I just can't seem to get the hang of it, so I can't even get thru the first round. When I turn, I just seem to lose all sense of where I am, and where I'm facing. Don't know why. Hopefully you have better luck.

Nice. I'm glad to see Waterworld getting its due. I actually think it's one of the best VB games. The analogy to Asteroids is good - it's a 3D, 360 degree Asteroids. In fact, it's the only released VB game with true, smooth 360 degree gameplay. (Insmouse's choppy, jarring 360 degree function is so bad it barely counts.)

Looking forward to checking out the other reviews.
