Looks cool...  Are these actually on newsprint?  It is hard to tell how rare these are. Does anyone else have one?

Yo Adam, the item is like a newspaper and in the same format. Pretty cool.  As to their rarity, I wouldn't say they are very rare, they are just uncommon and obscure. Something that doesn't show up too often.

Yes, I do have a copy of TSR WORLDS Vol.2, No.2 Fall 1988. I sent Scott a scan a while back, hopefully when he updates the site he will ad it. I recieved my copy from Walden Books back when they were originally given out.

Hey Burnie, from your recollection was their a lot of the Tsr Worlds at Waldenbooks when they were handing them out or only a few?  Did you have to buy a certain amount of D&D products before they handed them out to you??

As I recall I just bought a few things(pobably modules) and the guy behind the counter gave the newsletter to me. I never saw a stack of them so who knows. I was a member of the Otherworlds book club(Walden Books), this could be the reason he gave it to me.

 I have a copy of both issues here in Italy. They are printed on newsprint paper. Of course, I bought them from EBay...

What issues do you have Sotter? Any beyond Vol 2 Issue 2? I am wondering how long the Tsr Worlds ran for? 2 years or ?

 At the best of my knowledge, just two issues. The first one has a B. Dalton boostore chain logo.

Hey Sotterraneo, just to let you know I have Vol.2, No.2. I am not sure if there are any others, we will just have to see if anyone else comes forward with other issues.

 Nopers Sotters. Looks like you haven't been paying too much attention since Burnie has Vol 2 Issue 2. I'm better there may be another issue PERHAPS.

Hey, just letting everyone know that if you want a copy of TST WORLDS NEWSLETTER vol.1 no.1(June/December 1987) let me know. I have just received several copies in mint condition! If you are interested please email me at [email protected]. First come first served(and only one per collector please)! I only have seven of these to get rid of so respond ASAP. I am willing to trade also, just let me know what items you are willing to trade and if I am interested I will contact you. I am not sure of the value but it should be similiar to the TSR SPOTLIGHT($30.00 in mint). Does $20.00 each sound like a fair deal?  Thanks, Burntwire

Was going through one of two of my old D&D chest of stuff and found that I have 3 of these that I got back in '87 and '88. If I remember right, it was up front near the check-out and only a few were ever available.

I have:
Issue 1 - June-December 1987
Volume 2, No. 1 - January-June 1988
Volume 2, No. 2 - Fall 1988

Anyone know what these are worth these days?

The Ebay seller Hamilcar seems to have a stack of these (or at least the volume 2 ones) so they show up with some regularity.  You can pick them up for anywhere from $5-$25 each.
