I'm selling some of my board games. This is an unused set that I've had in my collection.

Before I Kill You, Mister Bond... Better Edition (A Cheapass Card Game)

Place your bid on eBay

This is a NEW / UNUSED card game in the original packaging (tuck box, magazine paper card wrappers, summer sales catalog from 2001). Before I Kill You, Mister Bond... the "Better" Edition is the improved version of the original card game which has been reissued with other names multiple times since then due to cease-and-desist letter being sent about the famous spy name. More recent editions of the game have been called James Ernest's Totally Renamed Spy Game and Before I Kill You, Mister Spy...

Game Description (from the box):

A Cheapass Card Game for 2-6 Players

Imagine, just once, luring the master spy into your evil lair and putting a bullet in his head.

Imagine resisting the temptation to gloat over your prize, to tell him your secret plans, to let him escape certain death and blow up your lair in the process.

Imagine winning.

Yeah, Right.

"Before I kill you, Mister Bond, I am going to tell you my entire life story, because I believe that you are the only man alive who would understand..."

Shipping:
Recommendation: USPS First Class Package. Buyer pays $3.75. This option gives you the best method of shipping based on item weight, shipping cost, and delivery time.

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

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?

My second build this time using a Tyco 9.6V Turbo Bandit in a Roger Mears racing theme. I swapped the rear end for 9.6V Turbo Hopper rear end for the narrower rear tires to kind of mimic the Tyco 4WD Nissan Racing Pickup, but i may sawp back the Bandit rear end.
