I just picked up a supplement from this kooky game in a lot. I looked at rpg.net, which shows two editions and three supplements total. Question: was there a first edition  that is not listed there?

Anyone know much about this game?

Any idea why they list the editions under 'Role-Playing in the World of Bad Movies' 2 and 3?

Because the 1st edition from Stellar games, published in 1989 was a second edition

Thanks. Hmmm. It would be interesting to ask one of the designers why their 1st Edition was marked 2nd Edition. I wonder if they had a pre-pub version.

I just received this reply from Bradley McDevitt:

   
   To answer your question: the first edition of Late Show was published by Stellar Games in 1989 in a very small initial print run, then reprinted several times before they upgraded to the full color cover. the first edition had two supplements which expanded the rules, both of which are reprinted as a significant part of the second edition.


Sounds like there are some pretty rare early items for this game that aren't listed on rpg.net.

Okay, so the two supplements he was talking about are the two that are on rpg.net, The Exploitation Sequel and Demonna's Revenge.

I sent him this additional question:

The question actually arose from the image attached to this email. It shows the 1989 B&W edition but on the first page it is labeled as being a second edition. That's why we were wondering if maybe there was a pre-publication version. Although you mentioned that it was reprinted several times, so maybe this is a later printing that was labeled that way?

And here's his response:

You are right.

I think it comes from a misunderstanding the publishers had between the idea of reprints and second editions.. i think what you are seeing there is still first (in the normal sense) edition.. but a version they did that corrected some typoes, etc.. and they mislabelled it a second edition (which, really, it was not...)..I had forgotten about Stellar having done that...lol.

Sorry for the massive thread necromancy, but I just found my copy of It Came From the Late, Late, Late Show, and I'm trying to figure out if it's a first printing.  While it's from Stellar Games, it does NOT have the "Second edition" line inside the front cover.

First printing?  Anyone know?  And would it be worth putting up at Gen Con?  I seriously need to clear out some clutter, sadly, and this one has been buried in a box for decades.

Did you ever come across a 3.0 Beta test Monster Manual?  :wink:

How cool! I just recently picked up a copy of the same "2nd Edition" at a local used book shop. There should be a separate thread here someplace with pictures of mine.
