1106 is a reprint of 1106? And as well as having the same number it also has the same name. If it is a reprint of itself, wouldn't it just be listed with the name and a mention that there was a second printing? :?

Is this a reprint of something else (like "1070 Dungeons & Dragons Game")? :?
Hmm...I copied that from Belathauzer as indicated in the first post.

The acaeum has more info, but does not include product codes.

1070 is what the acaeum refers to as the Fifteenth Edition (labelled the New And Easy to Master Dungeons & Dragons Game).

I believe that 1106 is the product the Acaeum refers to as the Seventeenth Edition, where the name changed to the Classic Dungeons & Dragons Game (1994).

The text of all of these boxes are identical (some changes in editing and layout) and ruleswise this is all 99% similar to BECMI and the RC.

Guys - this error is entirely my fault (and is a perfect example of why we have editors). The entry should have read:

1106 The Classic Dungeons & Dragons Game - this is a standard sized boxed set reprint of 1070 Dungeons & Dragons Game.

It should be further noted that the contents are 99% identical to the previous oversized boxed set. The major difference being that the folio/DM screen, which also contained "dragon cards" (which are basically reference cards for new players/DMs) is not present. However, the contents of the cards have been integrated into the main rule book in this edition, and appear generally in the sections in which the material directly pertains, but it is a bit clunky. The paper counters, map, and other bits from the previous edition are present.

I also seem to remember that there was more cardboard stand up figures in the larger older box then the smaller later reprint (I used to own both, for some reason I got rid of the black box and only kept the small one :oops: )

Hi Darva,
that is not a stupid question. TSR 1100 Dragon Quest is a board game set in Thunder Rift, but there was also a separate, older RPG, originally published by SPI and later by TSR also called DragonQuest. Could it be that the one you have is the latter? Only the former board game is conenected to Thunder Rift. The latter RPG and associated modules are not connected to Thunder Rift at all. This page shows that the SPI/TSR rpg is indeed set in Alusia, so I guess that is where that is from.

It is confusing that TSR used more or less the same name for two completely independent product lines.

Edit: Here's a discussion about the original DragonQuest (Alusia).

The only 'dumb' question is the one the that never gets asked.

This is especially true in a discussion forum! ;)

Good price on rgpnow.

I've looked for print versions on ebay and they are ridiculous.

Thanks. :)
