So, please add any additional comments to this thread...

Can't say that I've seen them that often on eBay. But I wasn't really looking.

My early games of OD&D were spent with the DM hiding his parphenalia behind books precariously standing upright.

Then Judges Guild produced the Judges Shield and DMs were never without their screens again.

I understand that this is now sometimes replaced by a laptop by those non-technophobes amongst us.

So, are they not that rare? Or just not desirable?

Was possibly a question of condition. (As though serious JG collectors should be particularly fussy, given the quantity of high-acid newsprint they have stashed away :)).[/i]


I already had an image on my PC.  So, I didn't bother taking a better one as I thought it might have been snapped up anyway.

Probably a mistake.  And it already has a new home.  Passed on as a freebie to someone who expressed an interest.

I would say that apart from the edges having been taped, it wasn't in much worse condition than when it was bought.  Very clean with some minor creases.

More then likely it is not the most desirable item for a screen (well now a days, back then it was the only one). Not to certain how rare, yeah it isn't on Ebay that often, but these were offered for a long time from Judges Guild.

I think it's a great DMs shield. But I've bought four of them off eBay in the last year (trying to get a minty one) and I don't need another.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.
