I had been looking over the old posts regarding this item, but cannot find an apprasial.

Any ideas?  

It is the rotated box with no log on the front.  It has the vinyl cloth map.  It is used in Very Good to Good condition.  

Also, how many cards were in the original?

Thanks in advance.

It reallt depends on which printing it is and if its complete.  For print diference reference check here:

Once we can establish which printing it is, it will be much easier to tell. :)

Ok...it is the purple box, purple walls, rotated with no label on the front.  The rear has a lizard logo and TSR address on the bottom.  

There are 228 cards, two dice, 12 pawns, a rules book, a vinyl mapsheet.

Does rotated mean that the long edge is horizontal or vertical?

If the longer side is horizontal then it sounds like a second print to me.

The longer edge does go from right to left...the shorter being top to bottom (north to south)...1975 copyright.

We discussed the various printing info in this thread:

viewtopic.php?t=4988&start=0

It seems like your copy is a landscape box (longer edge left to right) with purple walls.  The former list has this as being a 1st print but your copy has a lizard logo and address on the back of the box?  My copy which I think is a first does not have this.  So I think your copy is actually a new 2nd print.

I think the printing info now goes:

1st: Landscape box, purple walls, no product code, no logo on back
2nd: Landscape box, purple walls, lizard logo on back, no product code
3rd: Landscape box, white walls, F103, (lizard logo on back)?
4th: Portrait box, purple walls, lizard logo on front, 1002
5th: Portrait box, white walls, lizard logo on front
6th: Portrait box, white walls, wizard logo on front
7th: Long box, Roslof art, wizard logo
8th: Long box, Roslof art, face logo
9th: The New Dungeon
10th: The Classic Dungeon

Yeah..I was reading the thread trying to make heads or tails of what I have.  

You got it right though.  It has no product number at all.  It has the lizard man logo with the address on the back  of the box bottom.  There is nothing printed on the front of the box top except for the purple walled picture with Dungeon....rat at the lower left.

For a valuation, these tend to fluctuate quite a bit.  In part because I don't think most people know what printing they are getting.  If I had to guess, I would probably say $25-$40

Thanks...being that the game is used, do you have an idea how many cards were present in the first two prints?

That I don't know.  I've been putting off counting the ones in my set.  At a quick glance I would say lots.

If you follow the link Brian gave for BoardGameGeek, down toward the bottom of the page is one of a few Pdfs that contain the  component list.

Something that I have been looking for for a long time.

Thanks, Brian!!! :D

This list is for the 1980 long box version which does have different contents from the earlier editions.
