Ive stumbled across a copy of this, any thoughts as to quality and worth? I know it's more board gaming than role playing, but it's TSR after all :)

Sold a copy in shrink several months back (bumped box corner though) for $20. And it was a difficult sell at that.

I take it the games aren't worth playing then? ;)

I disagree, some are quite good. Search for the Emperor's Treasure is classic Tom Wham, and we had many an enjoyable afternoon bitd playing the original version from Dragon magazine #51.  Food Fight can be fun, especially with kids.  The King's table is a fun strategy game and is said to be one of the oldest games in the world. I think the prices result more from the fact this boxed set was seriously over printed.  It seems to turn up everywhere.

Well I think I'll pick up the copy I've seen then, as it's only £4.00

Cheers Mike, as I've introduced my two boys to our game nights every Saturday that they are with me now, this could be a fun edition then!
