"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

BHAC1 Boot Hill Referee's Screen

There is not much that needs said about a GM Screen. It accomplishes the intended  purpose of providing the GM with necessary tables that allow the game to move along at a  quicker pace by eliminating the need to flip through a number of books to find countless  charts. It also serves a secondary purpose in preventing players with wandering eyes  from seeing parts of maps and other items they should not see. I am not sure if this was  the first of the TSR screens to include a small adventure but it became the norm for  quite sometime for TSR and even other companies. I have never played this module so I  can't speak to it.

Fast-paced gunslinging action will never bog down in a search for missing tables with  the BOOT HILL Referee's Screen handy. Fourteen of the most used tables from the BOOT  HILL rulebook are arranged on this durable playing aid. A special 8-page BOOT HILL  adventure, Shootout in Northfield and other Famous Gunfights lets players recreate the  famous gun battle that destroyed the Jesse James-Cole Younger gang, plus six other  famous showdowns.
