Mark Ruggerio is selling a shrinkwrap copy of Carrier for $110.00 on CSW marketplace:

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.ee7011b/67305

If I didn't have a copy of the game unpunched already, I'd jump on this one personally.

FYI: In case you've never bought from CSW Marketplace before, you just simply click on the name (Mark's name in this case) to see his profile info to get his email address.  Jot him off an email asking if it is still for sale and what the total cost with shipping to <your zip or postal code> would be.  Mark is a frequent and fair seller.

Soooo tempting. Just a bit out of my price range and being shrinkwrapped I'll be afraid to open it. What I need is a complete but cheaper punched copy that Ill actually play.

Man, that is tempting.

That is an outstanding price for that game.  I doubt it's still up for sale by now.

A copy of Rage Against the Marines is up for sale: http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@@.ee7011b/67314

Game info: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/37875/iwo-jima-rage-against-the-marines

It's a fun little game and would be a great game to get if you're just getting in to board wargaming or trying to get somebody else in to it.  Easy to learn and I think that it has pretty good replayability even though it covers a small island battle campaign.  I even made a "GAP" (Game Assist Program) to play the Japanese side so that you can solitaire it:  http://www.garykrockover.com/sample/RAM/

That copy of Patton's Best is still available and now has a price drop: $20 freakin' dollars.  I have a copy or otherwise would be all over that one - it's a damn fine solitaire game.

P.S. I feel like a wargame broker all of sudden!  I have no affiliation or connection with any of these sellers.  They are just postings on the CSW marketplace that intrigue me so I thought that I'd pass them along to you guys.

I have a copy already, otherwise I'd grab it. I noticed the comment about making a Kelly's Heroes scenario. If only... :D

That copy of Carrier is still available, new in shrink for $80.  An absolute steal IMO.

Don't believe him folks, he is getting one counter from every game sold this way. Once enough counters are in his hands, he will print out one of the maps he made for Zun Tzu and design a game around it all - getting rich.

Just shot the seller an email with a price total request. He also has 5th Fleet for sale. What's the consensus on this game? I've played the computer version a long time ago (MSDOS) but don't remember much. Is it worth $80? he says he'll let both go for $140.

That's a steal for 5th Fleet if it's in shrink wrap. I like those Fleet Series games. They're kinda complex, but not to the point of Harpoon (plus you don't need a a gymnasium to play them).

If you're into modern naval warfare, the VG Fleet games are great. 5th Fleet is widely considered the best of the series. You could probably resell it alone for close to the $140. I was lucky enough to score a good used copy for $20.

So I just looked on ConSim and noticed he's offering both for $140 with shipping included. That's a helluva a deal. I'd pull the trigger if I had the cash.

Honestly, I'm surprised they're still available after more than a week.

The Fleet series were definitely great. 

I probably had the most fun with 2nd Fleet (North Atlantic) but they were all great, of the ones I owned (2nd, 6th, and 7th IIRC).  It even served as a dual-layer system, along with Harpoon, a couple times in my youth.  ;D

I don't think there's really anything similar out there today.  I noticed the upcoming Breaking the Chains game would probably qualify, although it's about a future war against China, and not WW3 in the 80s.
