not sure about some of my figs, early 90's and late 80's, although i do have my original D&D set dice from the late 70's that i still use.

the D20 is almost round at this point and pirouettes around the table. round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows!

OK, this is a little complicated, but I think I'm on to something here. I heard the usual griping today that we'll spend fortunes on armies and begrudge pennies for rules.

But for me, troops are a one-time expense. Rules are more like rent. I had Napoleonic troops on the table last month who were at least 46 years old. If I purchased only the most popular set of Napoleonics rules each time a new set became most popular, how much would I have spent over that time? (And how often would I have had to rebase, had I been so foolish?)

And I can sell old troops. Price old rulebooks in the flea market sometime…

So

How old were the oldest castings you had on the table last year?
