Well, back in print as a PDF anyway. It's the 3rd edition, 7th printing. Sorry. No Balrogs or Hobbits.

Come get it here. link

Well – that's very affordable (unlike original print copies !)

Nice to see it back.

And still the same price I paid for it 40 years ago!

Sucks for those people trying to sell their copies for several hundred dollars, I suspect.

It's a tragedy although there'll surely always be a collector who'll pay top dollar ?

This PDF and other similar ones bringing back long lost never to be republished rulesets is great for gamers.

Chainmail was the last piece of the PDF product puzzle to complete the Original D&D game. All the other booklets are available in PDF from WOTC. This is a great look at the genesis of the RPG.

I still have my original as well. Wonder what they're going for?

I don't think know of costs of originals.
Got mine for 50 cents.
Scored at a flea market.
Balrogs and dragons included. :-)
