I was just speaking to someone regarding Tamoachan, and he mentioned he had a Judge's Guild version of the module from 1975.  He said it was like the "Lost Tamoachan" scan, but with the JG logo and a green cover.  

Anybody else seen one of these?  (I'll try to convince him to scan it.)

That I would have to see to believe.  However, Shane's recent acquisition of a PBM game book with a JG logo proves there are little known items out there.

I think a very healthy amount of skepticism on this one is a very good idea, of course!. ;)

The individual in question was active in the early days of TSR/Dragon, so if such a thing does exist, he might have it. He apparently knows/knew Harold Johnson personally and/or professionally.  Anyway, I'll push him for details -- he could even be referring to Ghost Tower, for all I know.

In reviewing Lost Tamoachan's cover, the claim is semi-believable.  The known version mentions on it's cover that it is a limited collector's edition run, and bears a TSR wizard logo.  (As does Ghost Tower.)  It stands to reason that somewhere out there an earlier version of those two might exist, something of rougher quality like the MDG Tsojconth.

I'm inclined to save vs. disbelief on the 1975 date and the JG logo, but I figured I'd take it at face value for now and ping the membership to see if this is a well-known fact.  (I'm woefully ignorant as to JG products!)

Nope. AD&D came out in 77, and Tamo is AD&D. No way it is a JG Tamo. JG wasn't even in business then IIRC.

Apparently some garage/basement hunting was done, with no interesting results.  Ok, they found a Tsojconth, but nothing rare.  :lol:
