"Imagine that you and your friends are the heroes of a fantastic and magical world…"

Good visit to the car boot (yard sale, @CptRoboto), this morning. Found a set of Fighting Fantasy novels, couple of CD’s I’ve been after, and this: Dungeons and Dragons Game from 1991. The box is a bit tatty but as far as I can tell the contents are all there and barely used.

Here be dragons.

There’s the box plus AWESOME POSTER. The blurb on the front promises ease of mastery. TSR underestimates my thickishness with rulebooks. I’ve got Gordon Ramsay furrows on my brow that weren’t there before my recent board game interest.

Rulebook. 64 pages of characters and monsters and spells… 

There had better not be spiders.

Back of the box. This is the worst of the damage. It’s pretty caved in and creased :(

The above two pictures show the Dungeon Master’s screen and the contents of said screen: Step by step Dragon Cards.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ANY OF THAT MEANS

yet

This is where the magic happens. Full colour (color, @CptRoboto) dungeon map. Disappointed it’s printed on paper and not card. Is this common in D&D games or are beginners getting a bit of a raw deal?

The characters and monsters who populate the dungeon are represented by folded pieces of paper :-/

There are a lot of them, I guess. Fashioning them out of wood or plastic would have made for an expensive game. But still…

The dice. And something I have to read first.

Hmm. Tilty. I love it when I buy something old and it has all the original shit in it like product catalogues and club membership forms. 

… fuck’s sake
