Original Dungeons & Dragons

A premium, deluxe edition reprint of the Original D&D "White Box"!
The original Dungeons & Dragons boxed set was published by TSR, Inc. in 1974 and was the very first roleplaying game, introducing concepts that have persisted throughout later editions. It included three small rules booklets in a white box.

This deluxe, premium reprint of the original "White Box" features new packaging and includes not only the original three booklets, but the four supplements that followed:
  • Volume 1: Men & Magic
  • Volume 2: Monsters & Treasure
  • Volume 3: Underworld & Wilderness Adventures
  • Supplement I: Greyhawk
  • Supplement II: Blackmoor
  • Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry
  • Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes
Each booklet features new cover art but is otherwise a faithful reproduction of the original, including original interior art. At $150 the price is not aimed at people entering the hobby, but rather at collectors - this is much less expensive than trying to pick up copies from e-bay in good condition. I have all of the original books so I don't know if I'll get it, but it it might be worth it to keep sending the message to Wizards that there is a market for these classics!
