Monster Manuals TSR sales from Ben Riggs.


I crit!
I love MM2! So much I’ve run characters based on the monster on the cover. For some reason I have identified with them.
And Monster Manuals has won our poll by a hair!

Today, I present actual sale numbers for the 1st edition Monster Manual and Monster Manual II. Please note that the Monster Manual came out in 1977, but my sales numbers start in 1979.

Tomorrow, we will look at the 2nd edition Monster Compendium and Manual releases.

Do you find me amusing? Buy my book on D&D history, Slaying the Dragon, which tells the true and epic tale of how D&D almost died in the 1990s.

As always, sales data below!
