    Ugh, so I'm giving up searching our local games retailers for BG2, it doesn't matter how desperate Bym is to play it, it's just not retail no more :(

    eBay is even less help, with most auctioneers asking well over the odds for a copy...

    So, as a final attempt at making meh lady happy I'm throwing it open to the forumites, anyone with a copy (plus manual preferrably) sitting around unused send me a PM and name a (reasonable) price - and I'll forward it her way...

    gameplay.com have, it with ToB (in stock) for £19.99.
    amazon.co.uk also say they have it.

    and I am sure I saw a copy in my local GAME store last time I was in for less than that
    (sorry to mention that name)

    I love Baldurs Gate 2, so I would never sell my copy. But it's still reasonably easy to find isn't it? A 30-second search on the internet turned up BG2 + ToB for £20 in Gameplay.

    If you read the post above yours you could have saved yourself 30 seconds :p

    But I agree... why would anyone ever consider selling theirs away :(

    I still have all my BG games (BG1 & TotSC, BG2 & ToB), including all boxes and manuals.

    Nobody gets their mangy claws on them.

    NOBODY!

    I just id the whole saga a few weeks ago.

    Used BGTuTu.
    Playing Baldur's Gate one with the bg2 system was alot more fun, but a bit easy.

    Was nice, visiting old favs like Tiax :)

    All time classic, and still the daddy of RPG's.

    Buttkicking for goodness! :clap:

    I got myself hooked to BG2 again.
    Installed it yesterday to have a little fun and ended up playing 6 hours.

    BG2 is the best game to come out for a very long time tbh. It's just superb. :D

    Hmm - I got a bit bored of BG2 after I got the woman with her wings cut off to sleep with me...

    Maybe I'll replay it and see if I can get the druidess in the sack.

    Yeah, BG1&2 were both great games, bit of a shame that if BG3 ever surfaces it'll just be a publisher using the name to shift copies rather than a continuation of the original story.

    Anyway, if you're going to go through BG2 (again) you might want to have a look here: http://www.baldurdash.org/ especially at Dave Gaider's (senior designer on BG2:TOB) patches which add some of the things that were cut from the original release - tougher ending, more Bhaal Powers, 'proper' Demogorgan etc. Also there's a few total conversions that have been made and a couple aren't bad. http://www.teambg.net/forum/index.php?board=58;action=display;threadid=4571

    They weren't cut so much as he spent an extra 3 or 4 months adding stuff. ;)

    Some of the harder fights are pretty vicious btw, demogorgon is nails with the patch and the multiple dragon fight is very good. ;)

    Aye, some of the fights are just insane, the battle with Yaga Shura and his beefed up army used to crash my old K6-2 regularly. As for Demogorgan... he was still turning my party into bite sized chunks when i had maxed out as a lvl 34 paladin.

    For some reason I thought Gaider released the extra stuff to make up for the fact that TOB ended up 'Streets of Rage' style expansion pack instead of a fully fledged sequel. Can't remember where I read that or if its true though.

    If you have Throne of bhaal, you really should try that.

    Also if you find BG2 to easy, look up the mod tactics.

    I finally got it! :clap:

    Unfortunately, got Planescape:Torment at just about the same time; how will I ever have time to play them both!
