Generic is a small press item.  There is an address for mail ordering copies at $5 each.  It has been printed so its a bit more than a homebrew.

I decided to do a search for the author and came up with this:

Hans Reiser: Once a Linux Visionary, Now Accused of Murder

I'm guessing that means extra copies might be hard to find.

Oh, God.  Hans Reiser wrote an RPG?  He's the author of some filesystem that kind of fizzled out when he was convicted.

In issue #4 there is an interview with Gary at the Students Union Building at Reading University.  The article is about Gary's thoughts on the development of D&D and AD&D, thoughts on fanzines, future of TSR, and some personal thoughts.

In #5 its a letter from Gary about the editing of the article published and the enthusiasm of UK fanzines.  It also includes reaction from others to Gary's interview.

Textually they are both the same.  The only difference I can spot are on the last couple of pages: Olive coloured book has a picture of a face on p39 and The Little Soldier name/logo/address on p40 (both missing in the tan version).

At my end of the fun-find scale, I bought a damaged but usable Robin's Laws of Good Gaming for $1.00.

Is a long term goal to obtain all prints?  That's a very ambitious goal.

The main problem is to identify all prints... I have several prints of most of them but some prints have only few differences and it is very hard to tell which one first...
David if you find it, I would very interested by a complete list of prints for all modules and rulebooks (with differences)

NICELY DONE!
I am still looking for a couple of the T&T Solos.
(15 and 17: Blue Frog Tavern and Gamesmen of Kasar.)
Dont care which printing, just want one of each Solo right now.
And from what I read, there could be as many as 15 different printings for some of them.

I have a complete set of the Socerers Apprentice Magazines now, which was not easy to accumulate at all.
I had all but a few for a long time and then bought every issue in one listing....

My most recent fun T&T purchase was a copy of Uncle Ugly's Underground Doom adventure (second print Nov 1979) :D
I had been looking for that one for a LONG time.

Also recently aquired a 30th Anniversary Tin Box Set (with Ver. 7.0 T&T Rules) that was quite tough to locate.

The hardest thing to find I think is the french translation of Uncle Ugly's Underground Doom precisely, and the translation of Labyrinth. They were released by a small press, Hocus Pocus who has done only these 2 products. Impossible to locate any copy. Even to find someone with one copy. I guess that they are even rarest than the 1st pr. of T&T rulebook, since at least we know that someone have one copy!

This one

Yes *very*, I think I'll stick to alternate covers to start...

Geraud, probably you've seen the Acaeum wiki Essay: Tunnels and Trolls Printings - Acaeum

I've been using that as a jumping off point... and I'll see if I can't contribute some information, too :)

Very interesting, thanks for the link.
The problem remains differences between some printings. As instance, for Naked Doom, 1st to 4th prints have the same cover and seems absolutely similar but perhaps are not. Or for Dungeon of Bears, I have 2 different US prints, with the same copyright date. How to know which one is the first  :roll:
