WAYNES BOOKS RPG Reference

This RPG reference site is my own notes, observations, and photos about classic roleplaying game lines, mostly prior to 2000. I started this site back in 2002.

I don't have every single item in stock of course.

The Waynes Books RPG Reference Mission

This is my ever-expanding Reference of Role Playing Games (RPGs). In earlier days, I called this site Krakow RPGs and Wayne's World of Books, but I have since settled on Wayne's Books. I sell science fiction (sci-fi) & fantasy books, but my passion is the world of games. RPGs are both book and game.
This site is where I post documentation of games that pass through the shop. It is first and foremost a reference for my own day-to-day work. For many obscure games, this may be their only photo and summary available on the web. I focus on pre-2000, out of print RPGs and board games that can be so hard to find now.
Most entries will have Amazon or DriveThruRPG affiliate links to items or PDFs for sale.
