Another treasure rediscovered

I've been trying to rebuild my 2nd edition AD&D collection for a while now (how the originals were lost is a story for another time) but it's difficult to do when you are on a gaming budget (it sucks being a grown up with bills to pay) and still trying to keep up with new product released for current RPGs. So I scan ebay,, Amazon and used books stores when I get some extra coin in my pocket and sometimes my quest pays off.
This week I'm proud to announce a new little treasure has been added to the collection, the Monstrous Compendium vol. 1. I also found copies of the black PHB and DMG to put next to my original 2e PHB and DMG. I'm expecting them any day now.
Most of you could probably give a rat's ass about the fact that I reacquired this book, but I'm excited about it. I've wanted a new copy of this for years and either had other obligations or was honestly broke when I came across it. For me this is a real treat so let me have my moment of happiness.
Now I just need a group willing to play 2e. Unfortunately I don't think they sell those on ebay. At least not in my price range.

Kick ass! We recently began playing 2nd edition again. It's an absolute blast. Hope you'll find a bunch of people!

I'm playing alot 2nd Ed for 1 1/2 years now (again) and it's getting better with every week. Hell, it's been so long since it made fun inventing new house rules!

But what I wanted to say is: if you look for a great MC pick up the Mystara MC. Trust me... this one really shines!

Good gaming!

I've actually got my eye on the Mystara MC. My Monstrous Manual is in the mail and I just got my black DMG & PHB. The Mystara MC is next on my list, thanks.

@ Roel

I'm actually trying to get some old gamers I know to start playing again and using 2e. Cross your fingers.
