Let us take a trip down memory lane. It’s the 1970s. A time for big hair, high shoes and huge flared pants. Black Sabbath is playing in the background. We have this strange but interesting white boxed game in our hands and 6 friends to play it with. A game without a board. Without cards. Without miniatures. It’s just a few small rules books. It’s the beginning of a game that will become the icon symbol for a whole category of hobby games. A household name even today, almost 40 years later. It’s D&D.
Now fast forward again to the present. Wizards of the Coast is offering a new generation of roleplayers the chance to own a copy of the ultimate version of the iconic 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. The introduction of D&D changed gaming and pop culture forever, reaching millions of players and created a legacy that has inspired countless games, movies, and television shows.
This new edition of the original “White Box” features premium, deluxe packaging and includes the following seven booklets (plus reference sheets):
• 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 a brand new cover while the interior retains nostalgic original art. These contents, along with a set of 10 polyhedral dice, are packaged in an engraved illustrated wooden storage case that’s perfect for displaying in a distinguished game room. A worthy place for such an icon of the category.
