    \$\begingroup\$ Define rulebook? Core rules only, or supplements? Do boxed sets count as one or more? What about when the number of rulebooks for an eddition changed? I suspect this question isn't as simple as you might think. \$\endgroup\$ – YogoZuno Apr 19 '16 at 4:46

    \$\begingroup\$ Official books? Officially-licensed books? Magazines? Magazine collections? Official web articles? What all do you want? \$\endgroup\$ – user17995 Apr 19 '16 at 4:46

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you let us know where you have looked and what you've found (and why you aren't sure that "the number")? One reason given for downvotes is "does not show any research effort." I suspect some of those may come your way as your question is written now. \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 Apr 19 '16 at 4:48

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Adeptus FWIW that link does not give a count of rule books, but it's a great summary of the editions. \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Apr 19 '16 at 12:11
