Goodman Games has collected 200+ pages of classic Judges Guild material into a 13” x 18” hardcover, Judges Guild Deluxe Collector’s Edition.  The new volume will ship to trade in about two month, carrying a MSRP of $100. 

“If you'll remember back in the '70s and '80s, when you joined Judges Guild, every month they would send you a form that would look like this, except not as good,” Goodman Marketing Manager Brendan LaSalle told ICv2 at GAMA Trade Show. “These were all originally printed on newsprint, and they were all going to hell…. Everything was just rotting.  We have completely rescanned them and recovered them. We have all that material collected forever in this one giant, oversized collector's edition."

The material includes all of the variant covers and all of the art. "It has some new material in there, including things by Bob Bledsaw, Jr.; it also has gatefold foldout maps of all of the key things," LaSalle said.

The print run is going fast and there will probably not be another one, Goodman Games Publisher Joseph Goodman said.  “It's going to be one run,” he said. “It's way too expensive to reprint. I printed what I thought would be enough. We just had a retailer place an order for 20. I don't think it's going to last that long."

Judges Guild Deluxe Collector’s Edition was Kickstarted last year, with $115,112 pledged from 874 backers.
