« Last post by stan on June 16, 2018, 21:36:45 »
I was visiting some family and my sisters boyfriend said he went to an estate sale and they had some crazy old stuff.
I asked if they had any RC stuff and boy did they have a bunch of older RC stuff. He mention they had an old tyco and some really cool gas boats. So I went there to check and found this for $1

Ps. Took me 15 minutes to get the picture under 512KB lol

With 20 different alien powers, every game is sure to be different.

Age of Renaissance - Civilization in the Middle Ages 1996 Avalon Hill Boardgame

Place your bid on eBay

This Avalon Hill's Age Of Renaissance - Civilization in the Middle Ages is an out-of-print board game from 1996. It is unused, like-new.

The box is slightly pushed in on the bottom but otherwise in great condition. The cards are still in shrink-wrap and pieces are unpunched.


Game Description (from the box):

"A game of economic conflict rather than territorial conquest." "Witness the rebirth of civilization against the backdrop of medieval calamities." "Build the dominant civilization of Europe with advances in science, religion, communication, commerce, exploration, and civics." "Follow in the footsteps of Newton, Galileo, Polo and Di Vinci."

We begin in the 8th century AD, deep in the heart of the Dark Ages. All but the last vestiges of the Roman state, masters of the known world have been swept away by pillaging barbarians whose tide has ebbed leaving nothing of substance. Against this somber background this long awaited sequel to CIVILIZATION begins where its predecessor ended. Three-to-six players vie to re-establish their civilizations via trade while advancing in Science, Religion, Commerce, Communications, Exploration, and Civics.

While gains are measured in economic terms rather than territorial conquest. The proceedings are nothing, if not warlike. Against the backdrop of war, plague, famine, and religious strive, such personalities as Newton, Galileo, Gutenberg, Erasmus, Copernicus, Charlemagne, Polo, Da Vinci, and Columbus appear to guide mankind to the threshold of a new beginning with startling discoveries in their respective fields.

For victory is won not at the point of a sword, but in acquisition and application of 26 Advances ranging from Caravan to Industry. Each Advance grants its owner a potentially game-winning advantage, while the order in which these Advances are acquired, despite the fearsome calamities of the Middle Ages, will determine the speed with which you can discover the New World inaugurate the Enlightenment and usher in the Renaissance.

The game is quicker than its lineage would suggest and is playable in an evening in any of three different versions catered to one's available playing time. 



Shipping:

Recommendation: USPS Priority Mail. Buyer pays $7.90 - $20.05 (depending on buyer's location)

This option gives you the best method of shipping based on item weight, shipping cost, and delivery time. This item is shipping or could be picked up from Tarpon Springs, FL, USA.

Imagine winning.

Yeah, Right.

I figured I'd update this thread since it was the first one that I found when I was looking for a link to recommend. Here are some sites that you might want to check out if you or your kids are interested in programming.

codecombat.com - This is a great place to start! It's has a fun interactive adventure game that you get to write code in.
codecademy.com - After codecombat.com, you might want to check out some more languages at codecademy.
codingame.com - This one is my favorite place to exercise, but you'd need to have some of the basics down already for this site.
code.org - Maybe the most publicly known due to campaigns to teach programming, this is an interesting one that I've tried and recommend, but I haven't done much on it myself.


By the way, http://resizeimage.net/ is a great place to adjust your images to upload here. Try 600x400px size to stay under the 512KB limit.

Tyco RC / Re: Tyco 9.6V Turbo Bandit New In Box
« Last post by Dragon on January 17, 2018, 22:24:07 »
Hi Mark, Once again... amazing find! Thanks for sharing the photos. It's amazing to see that there are still Bandit's out there in perfect condition... I guess that goes back to me thinking that I would just want to get the truck out and race it around, meaning that it would sooner or later have some scratches on it, so it's tough to justify the prices I've seen on most of the mint ones.

Would you mind telling us where you happened to snag this from, and maybe even what you paid, simply for educational purposes?
