Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

"Your first step on the road to Adventure!"

This is a game that helps you imagine.

"As you whirl around, your sword ready, the huge red fire-breathing dragon swoops TOWARDS you with a ROAR!"

See? Your imagination woke up already. Now imagine: this game will probably be more FUN than any other game you've ever played!

The DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game is a way for us to imagine together - sort of like reading the same book, or dreaming the same dream. But it's a book that YOU can write, without putting a word on paper - just by playing a D&D game. This New Popular Edition has been completely revised to include ONE-PLAYER GAMES as well as group games for Players and Dungeon Masters. YOU can start playing RIGHT AWAY!

This box contains all you need to start having FUN:

  • Programmed adventures for easy learning and HOURS of FUN
  • The PLAYER'S GUIDE for beginning characters - with simple and expert combat rules, magic spells, and role playing tips
  • The DUNGEON MASTER'S HANDBOOK - full of treasures, monsters, and dungeons
  • All the Dice you need - six different kinds included, with marker crayon
More Information Edit | History

This is the first set in a five-set release for the Dungeons & Dragons Basic game released from 1983 through 1986. The sets are:

Dungeons & Dragons Set 1: Basic Rules
Dungeons & Dragons Set 2: Expert Rules
Dungeons & Dragons Set 3: Companion Rules
Dungeons & Dragons Set 4: Master Rules
Dungeons & Dragons Set 5: Immortals Rules

Later, in 1992, the Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia was released to give a comprehensive set of Basic D&D rules that covered the first four sets above in a cleaned-up manner (leaving the Immortals out to be followed up by Wrath of the Immortals).
