Akalabeth Auction Spotlight


Been looking for an Akalabeth and tired of never finding one? One just went up on eBay, and the seller is just letting the bids drive the price. May be a great opportunity to get in on one of these!

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


Once again, I must painfully pass onto my readers the availability of this fine piece of Helen Garriott artwork which I have been lamenting for, for a long time! I try to always remind myself to be happy I already own one of her pots!

With her recent passing, these will only become more sought after, harder to find, and costly. So if you ever wanted one, now may be a good time to grab this.

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


As someone who is both an Ultima collector and that follows the creators, it was eventual that at some point in my life I’d take a look at Helen Garriott’s work. For those not in the know, this would be Richard “Lord British” Garriott’s, mother.

I LOVE her ceramics! So much so that I spent years watching for them until I was able to get a piece for my own collection at a bargain.

I still watch for them as I would love to own many of them. This one is definitely outside of my budget but it absolutely beautiful!

Looking for something more substantial than just some great potential deal on maps?

This Ultima Two is currently at $125.55. The shipping is a bit nasty so keep that in account when bidding, or ask them to switch to something more reasonable for you. Lot of times Sellers just choose the wrong shipping on accident!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Sealed Ultima II *blinks* with an Extra U2 CD!


So this auction is happening right now, and what really makes it amazing it was listed low. How low? Current bid is $5.50 with very reasonable shipping.

It looks authentic to me but I am not a complete expert in that area. I know a few tricks on checking such things, but not all of them. So please do some research if you’re going to buy.
