Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you…

…Happy Birthday, Dear Dungeons and Dragons,
Happy Birthday to you.

No, I am not going to make a joke about rolling saving throw v. You’re old: the dang game is only four years younger than I am. I joke about it, I joke about me.

PS: This one is always going to be the one I think of when I think of this game.

This is the one I played; this is the one my wife DMed.

  1. Also have a large collection of 2e, I miss thaco. Presently play Pathfinder, don’t have a lot of time to invest in it like I did in my youth when 2e reigned. Looking forward to the day I can safely introduce the kids to that world.

  2. How is it that you’re three years older than I am, but 1st ed. AD&D is what I think of?
    (OK, that or the red box.)

  3. A top ten computer D&D game list that doesn’t have nethack?

    Some people just have a very limited view of the world, sigh.
