Here's a picture of the original edition of the Awful Green Things from the 1979 Dragon magazine.

I must have lost a gas grenade counter along the way because I made a replacement back in the depths of time.

I had a lot of fun playing this as a teenager and now that it's found and I have all the pieces I'm gonna play again soon.

Did the rules change much between this version and version 8? Is there an online pdf of the latest rules? Found them http://www.sjgames.com/awfulgreen/img/rules.pdf

Back in the days when there were less maps we played every map back to back

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

I have/had the original magazine edition somewhere. I also picked up the TSR long box some years later.

The rules have changed a little bit with the latest version. I think only one or two points changed. Not sure which anymore. Otherwise its the same game.

Remember that later editions have the "Outside The Znutar" and some other later magazine goodies added, too.

Think only the early TSR versions didnt include the "Outside" rules?

Otherwise my 84 edition is overall the same as the 2014 version.

One change thats been discussed in older threads here was that some of the items moved location or number slightly early on.
