This thread is for the (apparently very few) non-RPG products issued by TSR.

For instance, Tractics - a miniatures (tankies) game published in 1975 and OOP since 1977.  I suppose Chainmail would also qualify.  

Any others?

So to start, what's a decent copy of Tractics worth nowadays?

If you're not looking for a 1st print "dark-brown box"  :wink: , then this is a good price.



The 1st print boxes can go for $100.00.

How about including board games like Dungeon and the Castle Ravenloft one?

Or sticker albums, stencil kits, colouring books, key rings, matchbooks, notepads, folders and files, pencil erasers, chocolate molds, plaster molds, dice bags, douche bags and t'shirts? They are all non-RPG TSR products.


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

Not quite abandoned but more inactive.  There is still a bunch of us wanting to get things done but haven't had the time to do it.  Maybe in Sept, I will get a chance.

Or wallets and belt buckles. And nothing else below the belt. <scratch>

Or Gummi Monsters.  Don't forget the Gummi Monsters.

I still have a few of the empty packages for those somewhere.

Don't count.  They were RPG-themed.  Likewise anything licensed as relating to D&D et al.

Well...hmm.  How about Star Probe?  Or the Lankhmar boardgame? Or War of Wizards?

There were little boxes of crunchy candy, too.  You could save and collect the cards off the back of the boxes.
