The one (and only) member of a planned series of "Magic Viewer" solo modules for AD&D.
Attempting to solve the "one-use"
problem of the related MSOLO modules, TSR
introduced the "Magic Viewer". Basically, all of the text
and maps are "scrambled" with red speckles; the red plastic
viewer screens these speckles out, allowing you to see the text / drawing
underneath. A good idea in theory; in practice, is irritating and
blindness-inducing. It was also utilized in CM5
Mystery of the Snow Pearls.
That darn Magic Viewer tends to fall out of
any module not in the shrinkwrap. Therefore, modules with the Viewer
included are somewhat more scarce.
