Is there any difference in content (the encounters, etc) among the first 4 printings of "Tegel Manor"?

It's tempting to get a copy to read, mostly just for fun.
The collector part of my life wants one of the 4 original editions.
The wife part of my life wants me to pinch pennies.

Worth your time, money, and effort.  As to the "differences" they are minor if there are.

Tegel Manor is my favorit module.

Basically 1 from Judges Guild and 1 from Gamescience should be all you need.  Only other differences are product lists and presentation.

shane said it. personally, the older judges guild edition is better by far, though the more expensive, but if you can find a cheap copy, go for it mate.

its a blast.

martin said it - my favorite adventure by tons of miles.

I remember it from ...egad, 30 years ago ... Yikes!
And everybody loved it then, and still do.
But I don't have a copy :-(

I want to look for the original Tegel Manor, and not the newer "Original Tegel Manor" (which for some reason sounds like part of a Monty Python skit), right?

Thanks!

well i got a copy when i was deciding which one to run originally for the guys over in the states....and the older one just "feels" better when youre running it. cant really explain it, but i just felt i could do more with it constructively as a DM.

I know what you mean, and it really is hard to explain.
It's like the digest-sized original D&D supplements: even thought the same material is in the 1E rulebooks, it's just more "fun" to hold those originals! :-)

Found a copy, 4th edition, for $27.
It's tattered, but glad to have it.
I've read about 1/3 of it, and it's everything I remembered.

It's amazing how good that module was!
