I e-mailed the money order idiot asking if he'd take a personal check.

Where'd he come up with that one?! Jim Ward would not be pleased. I messaged the seller.

nice lot of items, some potentially interesting items in there. however, tho he accepts paypal, he clearly hasnt set up the option on the auction and check out the shipping charge too...could be a little pricey:

greyhawk: city of skulls mod with no bids on yet:



http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... gory=44112



the above seller has a fair batch of other stuff listed too, so could be an opportunity to grab a few items and save on shipping (UK auction)



oh dear :D D&D 30th anniversary promotional cup! *snigger*



http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... egory=2545



huge lot of mods - very tempting! 0FB seller though, but DOES include H1 and GDQ1-7:



http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... egory=2545



one of them white box set thingies - with addl supps - books look in great condition but box is a little beat up:

That's funny, I was looking for some informations about Dungeon! a few hours ago.

The french site Tric-Trac makes reference to three boxes, two from 1975.

Look at http://www.trictrac.net/index.php3?id=j ... ix=dungeon



I have just bought an unpunched one (1980) and I was wondering if is it valuable / playable or not.

The top picture of Dungeon is the Australian version, the bottom is the North American version.  The middle one is the later print, I think there are a couple more versions as well.

This is actually the 2nd print. The 1st print has the box art turned 90 degrees, like other early TSR games(Lankhmar, William the Conquerer, etc..).

Look closely at that auction photo.  It appears this cup only just missed being totally crushed by a screeching automobile tire!  

Is this a crime scene photo?



bonk!

The rotated box you're thinking of has completely different artwork (similar to that "Australian version" on the Tric-Tac page).  It may have been the first print, though there's also a Lizard-logo box out there.  The Jedko Australian version I know has a very different cover than the one shown on that site.



Rotated box:

Lizard logo:

There seems to be literally a dozen different versions of Dungeon!.  Quite a quest for the collector.

...and now that I actually dug out my research materials....

The first print of Dungeon! does not have a TSR stock number.  I have no idea what it looks like... perhaps polybagged?  The second print had stock number F-103; it's that rotated-box (first image).  The third print was the Lizard logo, stock number 1002.  The fourth print was the Wizard logo.

No idea.  That box lid, however, doesn't match any of the scans that I posted above... it looks like the one on the Tric Trac website.  It might be a first print?

I didn't even notice that it was different from your top picture.  I also did some checking and of the long typical board game boxes there are at least 4:  a wizard logo, a face logo, then the New Dungeon boardgame (blue box cover with step logo) and the Classic Dungeon boardgame.  There is also a miniature expansion set for the Classic Dungeon boardgame.



So what are we up to now ... at least 9 different prints.
