It's 6. I'm going through them in order right now, so you can find the ones preceding it (plus a couple of others) behind the link in the initial post.

I think it was early in the series, too, right? 2nd after Warlock of Firetop Mountain, iirc.

I'm wondering if sales figures of those books have ever been made public. On anecdotal level, pretty much everyone seemed to have this particular book back then! Based on my assumption of high sales, it is no wonder they tried to re-invent it repeatedly.

This is my favorite of the old game books. I don’t know if it’s historically true or accurate to say, but it seemed to me to be the blueprint for many that came after; not only the FF ones or others by Steve Jackson, mind you. I think you’re 100% correct in saying that the best part of it was the other explorers. It really felt like it increased the sense of the stakes and the “lived-in-ness” (died-in-ness?) of the world.
