    Yup, #62, $8.00  But I got the year wrong.  It says "Reprinted 6th edition 1981" on the inside of the title page (what is that page called?).



    There is only one booklet....is there more than one?  



    The map of Thunderhold is on white paper, folded into the center of the book and there are dungeon maps on the reverse side.  There are also dungeon maps loose in the package.



    Did I do OK?

ah.. you have the 4th then:



4th Printing: (1981) Cover has red background with white lettering. ‘Official Playing Aid Approved for Dungeons & Dragons' on the cover. 96 pages with small item number and price at bottom left corner. 6th edition is stated on the first page.  The revised 4th printing includes the judges thunderhold and sunstone cavern map in the center of the book and a colored players thunderhold on the back cover.



Only on ebook, should have 2 maps (the judge and player city maps) seperate from that. All of the dungeon level maps are included in the book for that printing.

Any reason why the book states 6th edition?

I believe its counting Booklet I, then #12 CSIO (or #10 the Guide to the City State), and the 3 other Revised CSIO printings before it. 'Edition' seems to be the word used in a few JG products to differentiate printings.

The highest number on the Booty List is 710, Amycus Probe.  It also lists Restormel at #700.



Odd that at the same time that Judges Guild was still putting out CSOIO, they were also printing crap (yet another castle map waiting for an adventure) like Restormel.   :evil:



Should I avoid posting things on the Sticky posting list?

Got a smile here when thinking along those lines. That option wasn't making much sense since #12 is just all those other pieces put together; Judges Guild Questions • Page 2 • Judges Guild •  The Acaeum



Try again?

Most likely is has to do with #10 the Guide to the City State, or perhaps it could be #16 booklet J as the '2nd edition' of that sequence. My guess would be #10..

Do you suspect a Guide to the City State that has a different Booty List that the one you posted as a possibility? The only other Booty List earlier then that I've found goes up to #10 in Journal I.

A nice piece of history there.  Wish I were going to GenCon.  Was your picture taken at GenCon UK?

#10 "requires" "I" and vice versa. As is supported by the deliberate grouping/choice of name in that booty list description for #12.

Yep. Noted.



And per the link above, "I did ask previously whether anyone else had a different highest number [in their Guide Book], but no luck on that".

<reindeergamez> will have another copy to check, though... *nudges*



I went around the other possibilities such as the white "I" being "1st edition" (*g*), but nothing really computed any better than the possibility of a further printing of #62.



Best left as an open research question for now, phps? :?

Yeah..I'd have to check mine again too..but that requires digging it out.



I do know #62 was offered in 1978, #12 in 1976..so perhaps a (c) 1977 does exist out there for CSIO.

That picture is Bob Bledsaw. I've seen him at the last 3 Gencons.

thx for keeping that "on the list", Shane. :)



Aside; do we actually know whether there was any special packaging for #12, rather than just a standard mailer stuffed with goodies? :P
