That is the same thing as my post (just a different location on their website).
Woops!

I bought the POD hardcover to be the "table copy" for my BECM games, since my original was taking such a beating.

Speaking of the RC!

Behold! Sales of the D&D Rules Cyclopedia!

The Rules Cyclopedia may be the best bang for the buck single volume ever produced for the game. Consolidating the rules from the D&D boxed sets, it contains all the rules needed to play the game, character creation, monsters, and magic items!

Next we’ll take a look at total BECMI sales by year, and then do a final tally of D&D vs. AD&D sales, including all D&D boxed sets and the Cyclopedia, and all monster products for AD&D.

Weird how this all works, if the numbers are accurate. Most old-school Basic players swear by the RC. But its sales are not great. B/X is usually regarded as the lesser of B/X and BECMI...yet B/X stomped BECMI.

I was gifted B/X and played the crap out of the Basic set before moving in to AD&D to run stuff out of the Expert set.

I dint remember anyone having BECMI or the RC until years and years later.
