Eamon merchandise is rare given the non-commercial nature of the game series, but known commercial products related to the game are listed below, followed by information on the current market for collectible Eamon-related items.
Though the main Eamon series is non-commercial and freely distributed, some related software projects have been commercial ventures:
- Super Eamon, a graphical variant created by Paul Van Bloem and published around 1985 by Van Bloem's Little Green Software. The price for the system master was $20, and the single adventure (The Haunted House) was $15. A "Starter Pack" containing both of these plus several conventional Eamon adventures cost $37.
- SwordThrust, the commercial successor to Eamon created by Donald Brown and published in 1981 by CE Software. Each of the seven disks in the series retailed for $29.95.
- The Adventure, an unauthorized commercial adaptation of the series published around 1985 by Green Valley Publishing.
- Adventures 256, 257, 258, and 259, published by Softdisk in the mid-1990s.
The Eamon CD is a compact data disc produced in 2000 by Tom Zuchowski that contains all the Eamon adventures available at the time, plus maps, pictures, all the newsletters, and other miscellaneous items. The CD sold for $3 including shipping.
The notebook idea has struck a lot of members fancy and we would like to proceed with it... The cost of the notebooks to members will be $10 each plus postage and handling. They are 100% vinyl with padded covers and backs, silk-screened with the Eamon Dragon and lettered in Old English script along the spine. They will have pockets on the inside for placing notes and will be a standard size (8 1/2 x 11) 1" thick.
Nelson also later described it as "the perfect place to keep your EAG newsletters!"
In the early 1990s SoftKey Publishing sold a set of pre-printed Eamon diskette labels, with the diskette names in Old English-style type. The set covered all EAG adventures at the time, plus master disks and dungeon design and utility disks. SoftKey sold the label set for $5. Tom Zuchowski described them in the December 1990 issue of the Eamon Adventurer's Guild Newsletter, noting that "they are very popular among people who have seen SoftKey disks, and after receiving several requests they have decided to make the label set available as a separate item."
