From Ebay, 03/23/08. For $1.

Purchased from the estate if Allan B. Calhamer - I had to buy twelve (all or none). I might be persuaded to part with one or two for the right price but keep in mind I paid far too much to begin with. It's better viewed as a piece of history than a game. For Diplomacy fanatics only I fear.
