The original Ghost Die just had the logo printed on rather than engraved, so it just gradually chipped away between use in play and rattling against other dice in the bag. Mine was mostly blank by the mid-90s.Also regarding Ghostbusters...
It used to be that one of the most difficult things to get hold of was a Ghost Die. I recall a time when single Ghost dice regularly sold on ebay for over $100.
Since there was only one Ghost Die anyway, players typically just had one d6 of another color and noted when it came up 6. It was easier than passing the Ghost Die around every time someone needed to make a roll.
I was working in a game store then, and it was definitely due to Masterbook not taking off.Yeah, there were conversions, and some books were entirely D6 based. I never looked into why, I wonder if Masterbook wasn't doing as well as WEG hoped, so they switched to D6, or vice versa, or some other reason.
I don't live in Toronto, but I'd gladly cover your shipping costs plus some extra for your trouble. My nephews would love that. But I understand if packing it up is more trouble than you want to bother with too.I have a copy of TSR's Marvel Superheroes which I think is mostly complete. A couple of official modules are also in the box. If anyone who lives in the Toronto area wants it, I will give it to you.
