You're not the only one.

Price was very reasonable until the day that Steve decided to draw attention on the auction...

So, as long as Steve prosecutes and condemns these "modders" they get

stronger and stronger

A change of politics is in order

Let's try to ignore them... Wink

Are you saying Steve is the "Donald Trump" of the Hiarcs forum? ie,
he is here to make Hiarcs "great again"? He keeps a glamorous wife
a fraction of his age and combs his hair surgically?

Hey Larry, speaking of hair, they say that people get dogs that look like them!

Unfortunately, for the buyer, pond pieces no longer exist so this board will be permanently short one piece.

PONDer Off Regards,

decent price
Of course if the Mad Master Modder got his hands on it and he modified it in some way it would probably have sold for 3x that price

anyway...question is...
does this Decorator have the normal Voice challenger program or the.....

Advanced Voice Program Regards

Way too cheap.

My Decorator shows the same module. And inside works the Advanced Voice.

Smile... Someone else made a similar comment. Sadly, the dog on
my lap has since passed away. The dog in the background is still here,
still up on his hind legs waiting for his belly to be rubbed.

A million bucks works out to $58 each. Then you've got the hassle
of marketing and selling them individually. My offer for the lot would
be around $35K...$2 each.
Unless this is an April fool's joke running very late...or very early.

$1200 for a Fidelity CC1

http://www.ebay.com/itm/FIDELITY-ELECTRONICS-CHESS-CHALLENGER-GAME-YOU-AGAINST-THE-COMPUTER-VINTAGE-USA-/142493584784?hash=item212d478d90:g:axYAAOSwc49Y7ve8

I Dont think so
however the auction is not a total waste
for those that track CC1 serial Numbers...

The seller says 'Works as it should'. Given the reverse notation and other flaws, he should say 'Works as it shouldn't.' Smile

Hi,

79Ç awaiting higher bids for this Novag Octo without figures nor mains adapter (I got mine for 10Ç, boxed, with figures and adapter and doc...)
Funny part: the reuse of Nick's technical specs.
Regards, Tibono

We have a thread here about Chess Robots which discuss the high defect rates in the Excalibur Phantom

well this seller insists his works:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Phantom-Force-Excalibur-Electronic-Motorized-Moving-Piece-Chess-Game-Set-WORKS-/172891121285?hash=item28411d2685:g:Ec4AAOSwkthZpbef

I wonder if it would still work with the pieces set up correctly

I Dont Think So Regards
Steve
