Does anyone have a copy of Tunnels & Trolls edition 5.5 for sale?  

I'm experiencing an unusually tough time finding a copy of this one. Yes, I know it's basically the same 5.0 with extra material. I want a copy anyway, okay?  :)

If you can help please IM me here. I can PayPal or send advance payment and s/h.

Note the "Version 5.5" under the TU in "Tunnels" and just above the troll's right hand.

Let me ask Ken today and see if he can shed any light on this.

Goodness, I don't know why, but that cover reminds me of the cover of A1 Slave Pits of the Undercity a bit. Weird brain connection, maybe the set up of the party and the green of the dual wielder... sorry for the minor derailing. I've seen that cover before, but seeing it today struck a chord, okay tangent off! :)

Thanks for the "heads up" on the FB auction, Allan. I scored that copy. I'm now anxiously awaiting its arrival.

It's due in 2 days! I feel like I did when I found a copy of TSR's Warriors of Mars. I'm pretty excited.

Always a good feeling! :D

Is this edition particularly difficult to find, Cameron?

Apparently so. As I understand it, 5.0 and 5.5 are the same rules. The latter just has some additional material appended.

So the base 5.0 rules are easily available in legal PDF (DriveThru) and in hardcopy. But 5.5 took me a while to track down. This is complicated by the fact there at least three companies with T&T rules sets out (Flying Buffalo, Corgi, Fiery Dragon) and a fan edit, as well as multiple editions.

I've given up on trying to figure out T&T printings. I once ordered a campaign map from FB, & received a color photocopy of the late-'80s videogame map. Official product of the original publisher, & simultaneously a bootleg. Then there are some of the 1970s reprints made about a decade ago. Apparently FB agreed to these at first, but later withdrew permission. So defining which of these are real & which are fake would require defining exactly when the deal went south.
