Unfortunately, your poll doesn't have a zero option.  I actually currently own no copies of Keep on the Borderlands.  I may be the only collector in existence in this situation.  It was however the first module I ever played.

Always a couple dozen, though currently low.  My record when I was selling extremely hard (1999-2000) was one full bookshelf level - I believe it was over 200.

Being a consequent collector of AD&D only, I do not own a copy of B2, too. The only thing D&D I consider buying is the Greyhawk supplement, as I like the early Greyhawk stuff.

B2 is worth owning.  It has nice examples of a PC base, a simple wilderness, a thematic dungeon with realistic alliances, monsters who cooperate and fight intelligently, and best of all, it culminates in an evil temple where the "purple tentacle god" of Greyhawk fame (G1, G3, etc.) gives its first hints of existence.  It actually fits into the Flanaess really well - just pick any border between a good and evil kingdom that somewhat matches the terrain.

From a collector standpoint, it's like a secret handshake.  If someone doesn't give you a B2 every once in awhile, you start to have doubts about whether you've fallen out of favor with the fraternity.
:P

I am with Dark, B2 is a solid started adventure. Beer and pretzel night anyone?

I've always got a couple extras lying around. But I have two in my actual collection - 1 in shrink and one minty mint first printing (there are more in a couple boxed sets, but I really don't count them).

I think the same could be said about X1. Massively printed and the butt of jokes...but when you get down to it, the module is solid. Great adventure to play after B2! :D

When I compare them to the trash that was published near the end of 1st edition, they look like masterpieces. I would take B2 or X1 over any DragonLance module in a second.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
