I do get around a bit, but no they came from regular-type sales  (with help courtesy of the federal govt's forced-savings plan ;))

Thanks guys :)

I typically store my books bagged and in magazine slipcases to help protect them from shelf wear.  I've been trying to find some sort of slip case that is digest size, but haven't had any luck.  I can't help but wonder what some of you all use for your digest?

But even if you found digest-sized slip covers, you'd just have to take a pair of scissors to the backer-boards to make them fit to the size of the slip cover. I just stick with the regular sized slip covers and backer boards.


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

I find most digest-sized publications will fit into the regular archival bags sideways. Can't use a board, though.

Sideways in a magazine size bag, with a magazine backer board cut exactly in half makes for a tidy presentation (reference the image of Dwarven Glory above)... if you insert the book wrong-side-up then the flap wraps around twice ending up on the back, which I like.

Sorry. I'd posted just the picture and then thought "nah, someone's going to ask what they are..." so I added the titles.

I wondered about that.  I thought for sure there were no titles, and then I posted, and then I felt like an idiot.  Thanks for solving that mystery for me.  8)

I finally find the time to make pictures of a part of the Digest sized books I have :)
I didn't picture traveller books, most of common books (as justifiers supplements, and so on)

Don't kidding me, those are pretty hard to find!! It took me years to finally got copies of them! Really!
But no link to AD&D ;) It is a humoristic RPG where one can play cops.

It exists some pdf of the 2nd edition (that could be dll on the author website).

I wonder if they got in hot water with TSR over the obvious logo ripoff. Maybe too small an operation to be noticed.

Too limited run. They were producted by an association and limited to 50 numbered copies. They were sold only in local gaming shop.

Here are a few recently acquired digest sized...  The Booty and the Beasts and the Ann Arbor WarGamers are my favorites of this lot.
