    This is how I got started. My daughter now plays Baulder’s Gate Dark Alliance with a friend, and it’s fun to watch them play, and talk about +2 swords and +3 armor. I told them they should brush up on their D&D so that they would be better able to despatch the beasts they encounter.

    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
    `’Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door –
    Only this, and nothing more.’

    We got all the munchies – you guys finish your characters yet?

  3. I had this set. If I recall, it came in a blue box, and the game rules themselves weren’t as extensive as they had become later; even in the red box basic set. I ended up selling the set when the blue box edition was actually worth a decent amount of money. I think I got $150 for it, in mint condition. They aren’t worth that much anymore IIRC…
