I've covered all the books and booklets in the T&T Boxed set. Now we have the bits and pieces, so to speak.
First up is the counter collection.
Tunnels & Trolls isn't really a game that worries about facing and exact positioning, but counters, just like miniatures, can help the players visualize the game they are playing.
Fiery Dragon always does a nice set of counters, and these are no exception.
72 counters, covering both PCs and adversaries.
I believe the artist is Claudio Pozas, as he did the illustrations in the monster book and the special edition monster / magic book. His look fits Tunnels & Trolls pretty well.
We get a handful of character sheets, which are nice but small.
I expect one would get better use out of a sheet printed off the internet, but it's nice for inclusion in a boxed set, as it adds to the idea that it is complete in the box.
There is a fold out map of Trollworld. It's actually pretty cool, even tho' I don't know anything of the places on it. That's a hint Ken. Maybe a small wordbook for Trollworld, no more in depth then the 1st Printing of World of Greyhawk. I know I'd buy it as fast as Ken puts it to paper / word processing program ;)
Last is the 4 small six sided dice, about the same size as were included in LotFP's Weird Fantasy Boxed Set. Which means its nice they were included, but a bit small for everyday use.
I'm sure the formatting of this post is going to be all over the place, but screw it.
All in all I'm very happy with the T&T 7.5e Boxed Set. It's a lighter game then most of the D&D OSR clones and is certainly Old School, which is where I'm sitting my gaming table these days.
I'm waiting on the Delver's Pack to show up, maybe tomorrow ;)
edit: 500th post... go figure. That kinda snuck up on me ;)
