So I came into some extra money and while wandering the mall on the weekend I had an impulse purchase and bought the Eve retail box.
Lord knows I didn't need it but I wanted it for the collector's urge.
The little "manual" is cute in its attempt to convey the basic operation of the game (strong emphasis on attempt) but its nice to have an actual Eve disc.
The question was what to do with the game card. I had three choices: start another account and get the free special shuttle; add 60 days to one of my current accounts; or turn it into Pilot Extension Licences (PLEX) and sell for ISK.
The shuttle was tempting but I sure as hell didn't need another account to babysit. And my current accounts are paid up for months. So I turned them into PLEXs and sold them for a cool 750+ million ISK. I feel a little dirty.
In order to avoid bad karma I believe found money should be spent as quickly as possible. So should I buy a couple command ship and a Basilisk? Or a Widow?
