I guess more. I have 3 different prints of the 1E. I need to check for details (the more visible difference is the title or not on the side). I don't know for the boxed set.

Yeah I wish those popped up more often.   :(

The seller to check with on Ebay is Hamilcar.  That's where I got my set from and in the past he has listed several copies but I'm not sure about his current stock levels or pricing.

Historian wrote:Strat is basically right on TW printings.  Here's a quick guide that might be a little easier to digest:

1st - lettering on back and sides is brown, back doesn't say second edition near the top, no white award circle on front, brown maps, contains two players' guides, personalities cover is purple, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have cardstock covers

2nd - lettering on back and sides is brown, back says second edition near the top, no white award circle on front, brown maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is purple, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have cardstock covers

3rd - lettering on back and sides is brown, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is red, largest TW logo on box sides is on right (or you can think of it as the cover art being printed upside down), books have cardstock covers

4th - lettering on back and sides is black, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is blue, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have paper covers


Unfortunately there are still differences between the prints that I have, and what Hist. typed above. Namely my 3rd print box has black lettering on the sides and back, not brown. Also the Large Thieves World logo is on the left side, not the right. Lastly, from the outside of the box alone, the distinctions between a 3rd & 4th print are that in the 4th print the picture of Lythande on the back is blue, and in the bottom lower right is an inset box with a barcode.


Sounds like you might be describing a fifth version - likely between my 3rd/4th.  Please compare with the points I listed.

EDIT:  Poked around on ebay, and I think I see what you're talking about.  Also Geraud has it pictured in the previous thread.  I'd place it at 3.5.  It sounds like the only difference between your two black texts is the blue lythande and UPC box on the later one.  Thus, I think the line up should now be:

1st - lettering on back and sides is brown, back doesn't say second edition near the top, no white award circle on front, brown maps, contains two players' guides, personalities cover is purple, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have cardstock covers, picture on back is also brown

2nd - lettering on back and sides is brown, back says second edition near the top, no white award circle on front, brown maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is purple, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have cardstock covers, picture on back is also brown

3rd - lettering on back and sides is brown, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is red, largest TW logo on box sides is on right (or you can think of it as the cover art being printed upside down), books have cardstock covers, picture on back is also brown

4th - lettering on back and sides is black, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is blue, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have paper covers, picture on back is also black

5th - lettering on back and sides is black, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is blue, largest TW logo on box sides is on left, books have paper covers, picture on back is blue

See if that lines up with what you have.  If so, it sounds like you're missing a 3rd (in this new order) and I'm missing a 4th.

Looking through my copies and I have a 3rd print that differs for one thing:

3rd - lettering on back and sides is brown, back says second edition near the top, white award circle on front, black maps, contains one players' guide, personalities cover is red, largest TW logo on box sides is on LEFT (instead of right) , books have cardstock covers, picture on back is also brown

In my opinion, the ones on the right would just be variants, and not a separate printing.  That seems pretty clearly to be a printing error then.

So we add printing errors as 3' variant?  :lol:

Paizo has launched their annual Great Golem sale... this time, the 3.5 PF modules are a buck, some Adventure Paths for $5, map folios and campaign guides for cheap too.  Plus the usual non-Paizo rpgs, miniatures, etc. etc.  Happy shopping!

Thanks for reminding me of this...I had a bit in my cart when I found out about this the other day...unfortunately, I forgot all about it. Half the things I had are now OOS. Oh well, Paizo thinks I still made out like a bandit :

"...
You've saved $166.39 off suggested retail—that's a 85% discount!
..."

The first edition went cheaper than that...

Bit of a random scattering amongst those that have been up in the last year or two; one each of the 1st, 3rd and 4th on eBay for starters IIRC, plus another 4th on NKG.

Fun game. :) :)

Somebody I know on Facebook is selling the first five issues of White Dwarf on eBay right now. Look to be in very good condition too:
