D&D Holiday Special


     No, it's not TSR's answer to the Star Wars Holiday Special. It's part of a "Mapping the Dungeons" column from Strategic Review #5, December 1975, page 7, no author listed (possibly Tim Kask). Here TSR was trying to move some surplus parts. $4 got you an entire OD&D boxed set, minus Vol III. It's unclear how popular this was (probably not very, since the offer is buried in a column part way through the magazine), but no copy of the Holiday Special has been definitively identified (I originally asked about it at the Acaeum in '05). They would be hard to identify since the booklets printings are the same as complete sets and might have Vol III added. Probably would require an owner who remembered ordering this.
