The Take One Leave One Library at Council


Hello SFB Grognards,

John Rigley and I had the distinct pleasure of hosting dinner for seven out-of-town guests who arrived today so they can start playing SFB as soon as the doors open for Council of Five Nations XL tomorrow at 10:00 AM.  Many thanks to Dr Dave Zimdars, Sebastian Palozzi, Fred Werenich, Kosta Michalopoulos, Steve McCann, Bill Schoeller and Big Ed Slusarek for trekking in early.


THE TAKE ONE LEAVE ONE LIBRARY

After procrastinating on this task far too long, I've finally completed a full inventory of the SWA's "Take One Leave One" library.  This is a big pile of goodies we have had available at Council for a few years now.  Many thanks to everyone who has donated over the years, but especially Mike Sanchez, Ken Stuart, and Nate Whitchurch, since these three guys donated practically their whole SFB collections to the club.

Our intent is two-fold.

New players who come to Council and show an interest in SFB go home with some free stuff, courtesy of the club and our donors.
Veteran players who are looking for a particular product to fill out their collection can trade for something in our inventory.

There hasn't been that much trading, but we've given away a bunch of stuff to new players over the past several years.

MORE STUFF

If you would like to donate anything, please reply to this post and let us know.  If you would like to trade for something, please let us know.


LOOKING FOR ANYTHING SPECIFIC?

Yes, thank you for asking!

It's kinda funny, but nobody has ever donated any MAPS, even the three guys who handed over their whole collection!  We would love to have a few maps to match with the basic rule sets we've put together for new players.

Also, there is a Captain's Basic Rulebook, but it would be great if we had an Advanced Missions Rulebook to go with it. 

If you have these to donate or trade, we are especially interested.


We're looking forward to another excellent weekend of SFB Patrol tournament action.  Watch the Council thread above for updates.



p.s.  FYI, it takes a long time to sort the counters for a dozen SFB modules.  I think I spent 15-20 hours on this over the past couple of weeks...

Items claimed and traded

I'm catching up with some little bookkeeping tasks.

At Council of Five Nations a few months ago (Sept 29 - Oct 1, 2017), the following items were claimed.

X1 - X-Ships - B.Villa traded a map for this.
MO3 - Captain's Starship Registry - P.Bakija traded a map for this.
5911 - Star Fleet Battle Force card game - F.Werenich claimed this.

We also discovered a new item in the treasure pile.

Small Freighter Deck Plans - This is an Official ADB item (stamped with Steve Cole's Professional Engineer insignia!)
This might be suitable for 4mm-6mm miniature figures, if you wanted to use it as a game map.

We also added one of the newly-acquired maps to the Beginner's Basic set, the first item listed.

Thank you.

Long Distance Trade?

I am interested in these deck plans. In trade, I can offer a lightly-used but complete copy of the Battle Force card game.
Unfortunately, the treasure pile is something like 2000 miles away from my residence. Can we trade over snail mail?

Council 2018 Trades

We have some BST action to report from Council.

Carl traded 4 issues of Captain's Log (11, 13 x2 copies, 16)
for
The Jindarian F1 and Vudar F2 supplements.

It's good to see the Take One Leave One library getting at least a little bit of action.

Council 2019 Trades & Donations

We had some interesting trade action with the Take One Leave One Library at Council this past weekend.

A gentleman traded a spiral bound Master Rule Book for the loose-leaf Omega Master Rule book. He later discovered that the Omega book has pages 55-66 missing. Can anyone in the community provide these? I will pay postage if necessary.

The Ikeda Brothers (first time Council attendees, all the way from California) traded in a huge pile of booklets. Old Commanders SSD booklets 1-9, Captain's Log 1 & 3-7, and Nexus magazine 14-16. All Jarod wanted in return was the old worn out Basic rule book. So, we've got lots more stuff in there now, some of it very Vintage.

Before any of you ask if we will do trades via mail. At this point, No, we won't. If you want to trade, you will need to come to Council in person.

Please watch this web site, the ADB BBS, and your email for a special announcement related to that. Coming soon.

Full inventory list to follow.
