It's a bit rough, but you might still have a fight to win at $4.99, Brian ;)
Can't see any sign of where the staples were, but the combat table is present (last sheet here).




Oh, I will be very surprised to win it with my bid.  My bid was put in there as a way of preventing anyone from practicing there negotiating skills. :wink:  My bid is extremely low, although if you top it, you will sitting at the bad number. 8O

I have to agree with tfm... after starting off collecting with D&D, I soon branched out into wargames and miniature rules. Most of the books/games are just as interesting as early D&D stuff, most have great art, and the best thing is you can get hold of most of it at a fraction of the cost. Books like W&W and The Lidless Eye are absolutely fantastic.

2nd printing on this one I suppose. Either way kind of weird coincidence.

And my latest purchase (barring the Dragons) was;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8764500988



Heh. It'll be a Fazzle next :P

(Not a Tsoj, I think... too early, that).

I have a Wizards & Warfare currently up for auction.  Don't know what printing it is but it's not the one with the burqa-clad Nazgul.   :wink:
