Half-Price Books has a Dungeon!
... boardgame, that is. My weekday commute takes me past a Half-Price Books location, so I like to stop there on my way home every Friday. The past couple of weeks I found nothing of interest, but this week my excursion paid off with a copy of the Dungeon! game from TSR.
It's not strictly OSR, as this is a later edition of the game from 1989, and it includes monsters such as "Karth, Evil Warrior of Zhentil Keep." Still it seems to have all the pieces and cards--even the dice--and the board itself is in good shape.
I never played this game as a kid (never even saw it in person until now, in fact), so I look forward to playing it. It seems like it will be fun. And that game board has already got me thinking about what that map would look like in 3-D.
