Actual sales numbers for D&D have never been common or easy to find. But Ben had a source sent him four pages of D&D sales numbers for use in his book, and it revealed a fascinating fact: D&D outsold AD&D, AD&D 2nd edition, and AD&D 2nd revised combined!
Ben’s book on RPG adventure design, Encounter Theory, is on DriveThruRPG. Click here to pick up this essential volume!
Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.
