Description

WE DID IT!

You've probably heard the rumor by now that "The Other Place We eBay Sellers Don't Mention" is interested in becoming THE LARGEST MARKETER OF BOARD GAMES ON THE PLANET!

Well, as it happened, my partner and I, who were very very bored with a graduate class on ambient-temperature plasma physics, cut class and invented a new board game to end all board games.

We have been told again and again that our game could easily take over where Monopoly left off!

"The Other Place We eBay Sellers Don't Mention" has expressed a serious interest in our UNRELEASED boardgame, which at the moment only exists in prototype.

Our problem is that, although we could produce the new boardgame in the hundreds, maybe even in the low thousands, we aren't in a position to produce and market anything in the millions or hundreds of millions, so we decided to sell it lock, stock & barrel here on eBay.

You are buying the FIRST WORLD PUBLISHING RIGHTS per standard SFWA CONTRACT to this new boardgame. You must pay the standard author's and artist's royalties as must all publishers, but YOU OWN THE MANUFACTURING AND PUBLISHING RIGHTS, TOTALLY!

This is NOT "venture capital". You will be the ACTUAL OWNER OF THE MARKETING RIGHTS TO THIS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY as specified in the STANDARD SFWA CONTRACT!

Board games are very, very "hot" right now, and if you are positioned right, you'll be right in the MAJOR PURCHASING DEAL that's coming very soon on the internet.
