I just received my TSR Silver Anniversary Boxed Collector's set from Ebay - still sealed in the original wrap. Of course, the first thing I did was rip the sucker open! heh.
B2 is the first reprint I've looked at so far. (My original copy of B2 is packed away "somewhere"). Damn but they packed a lot into a 28 page module back then.
I like the nice touch of including a 2 sided D&D reference sheet with perforations for "easy removal". It always good to have a cheat sheet, especially for new gamers. Lets see, the sheet has:
-Magic-User spell lists thru Third Level spells,
-Cleric spell lists for First and Second Level spells
(These lists are name only - no data, but its a cheat sheet, so that's fine)
-Saving Throw Table
-Equipment and Weapon Listing with prices
-Wandering Monster Tables for dungeon levels 1 to 3
-Cleric Turning Table thru level 3
-Die Roll For Character to Score a Hit, By Opponent's Armor Class (To Hit Table) for Normal Man and Characters of 1-3
-To Hit Tables for Monsters thru 11 HD+
That's a friggin' nice cheat sheet. A decent DM could run an adventure with just that sheet for reference. Very well done.
Okay - Time to read some more. Can't wait for my White Box to arrive. Amazing what a little cash overtime can do. (Besides, I need to "Grandfather" some purchases before the young lady receives full veto power ;)
