Check the title again on the third; is it Strategic PREview?

The title reads as follows:

The Strategic Review
Military Miniatures * Games * Swords and Sorcery
Summer 1975       Single Copy 50 (cents)   Vol. 1, No 2

I don't have the "cents" sign on my keyboard (and I am too lazy to find out the number code for it.  But that's what the cover says.)

The first article is a memorial for Donald R. Kaye, who died 31 January 1975.

There is an editorial comment by Brian J. Blume that starts out:

"Tactical Studies Rules is not a giant company; it is not even a large one.  But we are growing now, and in the future we might attain substantial size.  While we must make a profit to remain in business, TSR is not around solely to make money."

The back cover has information for Gen Con VII at the Horticultural Hall in Lake Geneva.  It gives Gary Gygax's phone number!   8O

It has a price tag for $6.80 from Future Dreams, down in Portland.  I think I paid $4 for each of the three.  (I was looking for Dragon magazines at the time and I was disappointed to only get these SR's instead.)  

I have never taken it out of the bag.

You could get the same for a Palace of The Vampire Queen, but if you've got the folder I'll give you a hundred for it. :D


The city geos are uncut and in some kind of light folder....I presume that there was a cover or something....in shrinkwrap?

I was only joking about the Vampire Queen.  Sadly.   :x

Back in the day, I would never have bought anything from a company with a whimpy name like Wee Warriors.

Most of this stuff, however, is stuff my gamers gave me over the years.  I certainly never had any money.

bar for coug putting one up from time to time (normally with a reserve - well beyond what i was prepared to pay for it), last one i remember clearly, was BTB putting one up a fair while back but i missed the end of it (as usual)...

cant remember the finishing $ tho. still, at that price, you cant go wrong imo - nice decent pickup!

Wow!  Good memory.  I just checked my records and it sold for $14.99 (which was the opening bid, I am sure).  I remember seeing a couple sell in the $20 range a little before that.

well i have been looking for a decent price one of them since then! only one cropped up was cougs and i just didnt fancy paying £50+ when i knew i could get it for a fraction of that, which i did in the end thankfully!

just goes to show really, a little patience normally pays off (something which us lot rarely ever show :D )

Nah, Chuck is way better looking than me. Hell, CHUCKIE is better looking than me.
Although, there used to be 25 letters in the alphabet, until I got pissed at the N and round-kicked it sideways.
(made that up all by meself)
I don't think that I'm overly patient so much as I am cheap. I honestly wish tourney mods and the like went for a couple hundred apiece, like the old days. But then, there weren't as many die-hard collectors then either.
Al, I might have to fly over there just to down a few ales with you soon. Do they allow you to be bailed out over there?

Got this, am very happy :D
2nd print Basic Box set (complete)
Hex Pad 1st print (Mine has 40 sheets attached to the pad and 1 loose)
B1 1st print
Other sheets are Fantasy Trip photocopies of record sheets and well the large hex sheets don't give a name as to where they came from (only say Permission to Photocopy)
2 character sheets for D&D that look like they were typed up for personal use

I take it the Basic set book has no differences to the 1st other then hobbit/halfling change? Mine has the purple worm pic, tables on pg 10 seem to have the classed characters as wandering monsters.

Oh and as for the two books in the lot, one has not been cut along the edge (the outer margin is wider, pages extend out farther and father as you reach the center, then reverse course, cover has white line and faded image edge where the book should have been cut)
