FWIW, there are like four or five more Designer’s Editions up for sale on eBay right now for cheap! What is going on?
I also found a really great out-of-print mat from Chessex at a game store (new in original wrapper unopened). It’s a Megamat™, 34½” x 48” Vinyl Game Mat, Black Vinyl w/30mm Numbered Hexes, Stock # CHX 97869. It’s seriously perfect for SFB with minis. I haven’t been able to find any online, so this was a real steal!

Nice to see that you got the Designer's Boxed set as well as the microgame. I'll bet that it slipped by because the Boxed sets aren't much in demand and bidders may not have realized that the microgame was in there, too.
At least, I know I didn't notice it at first when I clicked on the link. My initial thought was "um ... that's not the microgame." Then I looked at all of the photos.
