Haunted Illinois

 Another book by Troy Taylor, Haunted Illinois covers many of the same locations and stories Taylor recounted in his Big Book of Illinois Ghost Stories. This one does add stories from the Illinois River Valley and some more from the Alton region but is probably best for the compleatist or for someone who wants to save a few bucks.

Big Book of Illinois Ghost Stories

 Another book by Troy Taylor, this 372 page book contains well over a hundred stories of ghosts from throughout Illinois. As it should, Chicago gets a section of its own with the rest of the state divided into Northern, Central, Southern and Southwestern Illinois. Southwestern Illinois gets its own section because Taylor lives in the town of Alton and hosts tours of reportedly haunted locations in the community. In southern Illinois, the Old Slave House gets a chapter, as do Hundley House and the spooks of Dug Hill, located between Ware and Jonesboro on Highway 146. A good general introduction to the better known ghosts of the states.

 We have a collector interested in all of our out of print Ravenloft supplements so have pulled them all from our eBay store until the middle of next week. If you are interested in any of them , we will still be glad to sell them to you but you will have to contact the store instead of buying them off eBay.

 WotC  did not have much expectation for the Unfinity set as there was no Buy a Box Card. Nor were there Set boosters, Commander Decks or pre-release kits. Ah well, at least there was a Launch Party and card.

Hopefully this will be the last of the Un sets. We have seen very little interest in the last two sets and abscense appears to have not made the heard grow fonder.

Just a reminder that SIUC Homecoming is tomorrow and downtown Illinois and University will be blocked off from Mill Street to Cherry Street.  Should be cleared out by noon thought.

Unfinity Cards

 Reading reports of problems with the Unfitity set card stickers.  Either the stickers fall off after about the 2nd use, which rather detracts from using them in a game or they stick too well to the cards with palyers unable to pull them off or leaving residue on the cards. Maybe using the sticker on sleeved cards would solve the second problem. Not sure what to do about the first.

Out of Stocks

 If you are lookingf or a particualr board game and we do not have it, especially if it is a recent one, it is likely out of stock. We are seeing month's long out of stock of popular boardgames. The Night Cage for example has been out of stock for about 4 months and Alice is Missing for two. We do work to restock when we can and keep any eye on arrivals but they do take a long time.
