Hi guys:

trying to determine the value of some Tunnels and Trolls items.    Already looked on ebay and I can't fine any record of them recently

Tunnels and Trolls -   !st Edition (printing)   Copyright June 1975.   No other dates anywhere in the rules.  picture is same as on the authorized reprint.  Back cover has come loose from staples, but otherwise in good shape.

Tunnels and Trolls Supplement  - No dates that I can find.

These items should have some value considering the prices quoted for late printings/editions.

Any help or directions to other sites would be appreciated.

The June version was the first one that FB published. Andre's was a few months earlier, I believe.
You should post some pictures. There are several T&T collectors that would be interested.

If you put them up on eBay and link to them here, you'll do quite well on the 1st print I'm sure. The supplement is more obscure - I managed to get one on eBay back in 2014 for about $56, but I don't think anyone else noticed it. With some proper advertising it could do much better as well.

I would encourage you not to take any private side offers for that 1st print.

and some more pics.  The biggest flaw is that the back is off (but still in good shape)   found a 2nd printing and the supplement sold on ebay for over $1,000 recently.  (had to search under st. andre)

Well, I put them on ebay and apparently priced the too low.

I priced the T&T  1st at $999 and $1,500 buy it now.    It went for the buy it now within 1 day.

priced the supplement at $100 and $150.  Same thing sold for $150

I would suggest if you have future items to stay away from auctions and instead use the Buy It Now with the Best Offer option

That way you can ask for a high BIN price and have the option to accept lower offers if you choose.

Example....List for $3000 and accept whatever offer you like. If someone offers $2000 and you're good with that, then everyone is happy.
