Well it is either a 4th print or 5th print (book only) (though 1st - 3rd printings of this are pre-Judges Guild)
To determine what you have check near the back of the book for, in this case, photos of covers for other Judges Guild products. If you have a photo of #240 Fantasy Cartographer's Field Book its a 5th, if you have a #52 Thieves of Fortress Badabaskor its a 4th.
To a collector that may help price, but otherwise the book could fetch a few dollars (though the sellers on this board maybe better able to provide you a price)

That is a later reprint of the original convention modules. The one you have is quite common. The older versions (red/green covers) are frustratingly rare. With perhaps arguably the worst cover art of all gaming products anywhere.....

Is the original a one part tourney, or does it have a preliminary round and a final round? Could you give us a scan of the first title page? Who is the author? Bob Blake?

That red copy is the image of Matthais courtesy of Hamburd university's server.  :wink:



We went through all this some time back with Burntwire, Inc. I can't remember what we figured out. My memory isn't too good these days. IIRC ( :wink: ), Burntwire had a coverless edition that may or may not have been the original tourney.



I think the red and green cover are nearly identical save printing notations. I do own the green cover item if I can help further.

Holy Carp!! What a nice plug that turned out to be. :lol:



Anyone know where that original thread went to? I would like to re-read it to refresh my memory. Maybe it was within a different thread?

Does this copy, or the green cover copy have the final round in it, or are they both just the preliminary round?
