A Beholder right when you enter, yeah that is a high level dungeon.
I much prefer that one over the knight.

SO now the question, they ever get used since you've had them?

Yeah, the only thing lacking is a bikini-clad woman atop those towels!

Those towels are super-cool now ... back in the day, though, I would have been terrified of taking one to the beach. I went to a pretty clique-y high school ... the sort of place where one could find one's ass kicked for bringing a D&D towel out into the open.

I sort of want one now, though ... it would make my wife roll her eyes like this:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Which one?  

Those are two different ones. Not a front and back.



Oh, I see that now, know wonder I'm always at the back of the party.  

The dungeon one is great I have to hunt one of those down.  8) How often do these show up on ebay?

Not that often I think. Although I do not have a search set up for them, I tend to look for other stuff.

-Shane, nope I have never used them. I washed and dried them when I first received them, thats it.

Yeah, the only thing lacking is a bikini-clad woman atop those towels!


-Mark, I couldn't talk the wife into it  :(

it would make my wife roll her eyes like this:     


-X, that was my wifes reply -  :roll:

-Frank, were they the same as these? Do you know of any others?

How often do these show up on ebay?


-Ekim, not very often. At least I havent seen any lately. I believe I was moving during the Sutherland ones.

I tend to look for other stuff.

Thanks for all the comments,

I think there were four.

Mine via DCS are the blue dragon (pictured above) and the purple worm (each with combatant humanoids). I wish I had the dungeon, it's fairly cool.

{edit}

I don't recall what the fourth design might have been, tho.

From the Sutherland auction, showing the purple worm:

I just picked up 2 copies of this book from my local used book store - how they got them I do not know.  They are however missing the spinner.  Anyone have a copy with the spinner?  I would be interested in seeing it.

It includes lots of fun games like Venger's Castle, Venger's Enchanted Steps, Warduke (kindof a put together the body pieces to make Warduke game), Excape from Venger's Dungeon and more!

I also have the D&D cross stitch kits.  Here is a link to the pictures over on Dragonsfoot:

http://www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=18844

Any idea who thought these up?  Was it a hobby of the wives of TSR employees?  The packages also state that Greenfield Needlewomen is a subsidiary of TSR Hobbies, Inc.  They are copyright 1983.  I checked the 1983 TSR catalog and they mention them in their expanding line of merchandise but don't say much else.

the Blumes had acquired, without approval of the Board of Directors, a craft company called Greenfield Needlewomen. This company was owned by one of their relatives. While military/fantasy miniatures might be successfully integrated into a game publishing company, a line of needlecraft and associated products certainly could not.

I also made a few comments about it over on my Q&A thread at DF.
