GYGAX, Gary S1. Tomb of Horrors London, Games Workshop, 1978.

Folio. Original pink decorative card wrappers, printed in red, white and black (detached, as issued); pp. 12, pp.20; a bright, clean copy in very good condition, very minor rubbing to corners of outer cover.
The rare UK first printing of the iconic Tomb of Horrors module for the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game, authored by the creator of Dungeons and Dragons for convention play and popularized due to its merciless puzzles and deadly traps designed to test (read: dismember) some of his more powerful player characters. The UK printing, contemporary to the 1978 US printing, is identical in most respects, though the maps at the rear are printed in black ink, not blue. The module contains two booklets, one with the dungeon instructions, and second containing the illustratations designed to be shown to the players at the table for a more immersive experience. The Tomb of Horrors module was so impactful (and notorious as an example of wickedly dubious sportsmanship) that it has been re-released in various iterations for every successive edition of Dungeons and Dragons.
