The Companions - Treasure Trove I - Cards of Power

Purple-and-white cover.  Published in 1982, item number 41001.  50 numbered pages, and the front and back covers must be cut into cards to use the book.

Is this odd, useless, rare, worthless, or all four?

It's unusual at least. I haven't seen one for a long time.

Its uncommon.  Would probably sell for about $35.

It's actually quite a good read. Very uncommon. Doesn't turn up on eBay much, but does turn up once or twise a year in online stores.


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

Thanks for the replies.

Thanks also to TheHistorian for pointing out that it should have 70 pages instead of 50.  It is missing the pages that detail the magical items, so 20 pages have been lost to time.  Ah, well.   :(

However,  I can now cut up the covers and use the deck.   :D

Crap.  Not happy to have been right about that one.
