The Oracle of Muti did not give you a Hourglass of Answers.<br />If you had gold you could give it to the Oracle(insert it in the box) and ask the oracle a Yes Or No question. And a 'magic crystal' would mysteriously move on to the answer.<br /><br />In 04', someone used on in the Library room in asking what one they should choose. And they got a cryptic, 'You should chose the right one'. Which they were unsure if it was a clue or just smart alec. ;)<br />ehhehehe, gotta love it. hehehehe

<br />I checked with Kevin to see if he remembered. He's pretty sure it was 2 reds and 4 greens. (I phrased the question as "what did he give you, how many each of the reds, greens, etc.")

I believe he just called you the graceful belle of the ball. But we already knew that about our lovely lesimony. <br />

Ok, here is the skinny on the [glow=red,2,300]Hourglass of Answers[/glow].  It was in both the 2003 and 2004 print runs and there were roughly 20 printed, all in circulation.<br /><br />There have been two trades (that I know about) one at 200gp and one at roughly 600gp.<br /><br />Compared to other tokens, it has the roughly the same rarity as the Special: ? ?? and the Special: ?? (if anyone is curious, I'll explain why).<br />It also has the same rarity as the 20GP token and the [glow=green,2,300]Rare[/glow] Potion of Cure Light Wounds (+5).<br />And the Hourglass is more common than the Potion of Haste.<br /><br />So given the limited usefulness of the HoA, the fact that it is a consumable, and values of comparable tokens in terms of rarity, is it worth 1000gp?  Trades so far don't seem to support that.  As with any transaction though, I would suggest you try to get as much as you can for it and see if anyone is willing to pay your asking price.  This is the value that is reflected in the Price Guide.<br /><br />Hope this answers some questions.<br /><br /><br /><br />

Thanks for doing all that research.   <br /><br />Will you be raising the price due to the 600 gp trade?  <br /><br />With a new large batch of tokens entering the game, I expect that all the low availablity tokens will go up in price but it is going to be a while till I get purples for my Hourglass.   Bummer.  <br /><br />(The other item that may be getting rare quickly are the potions of dark vision.  I know I used 3 at Indy and only have 1 left.) 
Level 10 in 2020. Looking forward to the new puppy.

<br />Unlikely. Some discontinued tokens have actually continued to decrease in price, ecspecially if they're functionally worthless. The big collectors oftne have the one they need of it to complete their collection and no one else wants it because it's crap.

<br />No problem George.  :D<br /><br />The new trade will be (has been) factored in.  Jeff should be posting the latest Price Guide soon.

<br /><br />Chances are, there aren't going to be many. It's like finding people who start playing magic now and want to collect an alpha set. New people just don't have the resources unless they're willing to spend, Spend, SPEND big time. The number of people who will drop that amount of money, ecspecially as the money amount needed increases, will diminish exponentially.<br /><br />Think about it this way. How much in tokens do you think someone would have to spend to collect a complete set as it is. Think about the ratio of trade that person would need just to get himself a set of the purples. Now add to the fact that likely this year there will be more additions to the UR family and what you realize very quickly is that the number of 'collectors' (defined as people who _must_ find a copy of every tokens for theri collection) is just going to dry up. Sure, if they find someone offering an old token for cheap they might go for it just for the novelty value, much like I would, but the idea that they would _have_ to get it because they're a collector is more and more unlikely with each year and it would have to be cheap because I can better put my limited resources toward a token that has some functional use for me.
