Here is a nice lot of 37 items starting at $15. Nothing particularly rare, but it would be a good lot to start off a JG collection!

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

This guy has four Frank Fazetta puzzles. Not really JG, but he did some artwork for JG, so thought I'd post them here:

FYI, 67 JG history books purchased in first 6 days so I am very pleased. But if anyone thinks their book is junque, I will make a full refund.

Incidentally, the price will start inching up shortly... I wanted to give you fans a chance at it with a pre-publication discount.

Back in 1977-1978, we would NEVER have considered producing a 36 page book with full-color on nearly every page and heavy, quality paper. It was just too expensive and yet when you adjust for inflation, this product is very little more than we sold projects of similar page-count but fewer words and much fewer images.

The thing that kept us from doing the full color was the $500 set-up for color on 8 pages (I think, this might be higher now)... so for a product of this size there would be an extra $2000 charge before 1st copy is printed!

The print-on-demand concept isn't perfect and may seem a bit overpriced or quality a bit under mass-market expectations BUT the fact that you can get a highly specialized micro-market edition out at nearly market rates is an amazing feat of modern technology.

One caveat, I am not really good at photo-retouching and only corrected about 10 of the photos. Just because I think the pictures look okay doesn't mean that the book in 100% professional printing in this one respect. Shoot, I never did get a cerificate of graphic design training completion from the Wizard of Oz so you may think some of it is weird.

There is one other nominal flaw but I'm going to keep it to myself to see if anyone notices it. I have learned over the years that many of my travel customers seem to enjoy stomping on my generous typos and clumsy writing... so since I bothered to do better on these items, I left in at least one oddity to delight the sharp-eyed. :)

As I vacuumed leaves today, I "prototyped" 2 games in my head and thought of several old stories I could have included in the book if I had only left it unpublished it as long as another ruleset that JG is still waiting to publish 30 years later Anyway, since a 2nd edition of my history seems unlikely I will try to answer people's questions at my jg page: http://www.g-design.us/jg

Will you make any changes for the published (non-prepub) version?  Any changes in content, layout, etc. ?

No, I don't expect to. Unless of course you have found a big, enormous error!

Yes, but interesting. It seems to be an incomplete first print, which is one of the very rare items. Not only that the cover print colour seems to be different to what is recorded on the subweb. The winning bid was $8.50. Complete, these can sell for over $100 - I hope someone here won it and can compare with the info on the subweb.

As I remember it (and I'm sure you guys have figured it out), the 1st printing cover was imprinted on a 9x12" white short-end flap envelope. Then the 2nd printing cover had dropped the envelope and was a loose sheet inside a heat-sealed bag... and with a product number added lower right.

The object may have been partly to make it less expensive but primarily so the buyer could see one of the sheets through the back of the bag.

Changing to a booklet later accomplished this visibility ideally and gave a lot more value (lots more pages i.e. repetition of key To Hit charts players would use) without requiring the buyer to xerox some of the charts for players (which was quite expensive then--I had to walk about 4 blocks to pay 25 cents to use the xerox machine at Walgreens then and this was when my job a the travel agency was paying about $1.50/hour!
