AD&D and the Basic set--I started with both...

Of course, I'm no "white-box" veteran, but I've been around a while.

Started with basic D&D (red basic box and blue expert box). The choice doesn't appear in the polll, so I voted 1st edition.
6 months after, I met another group of players and I went for first edition... That was so looong ago...
And I still mostly play 2nd edition, with a bit of 3.5 sometimes...

My interest started when I was about 5-6 years old, which would be '78-'79. We moved and one of the kids who I made quick frinds with's dad played D&D. I didn't know much about it, but was fascinated by the painted minis. I bought all the toys when they came out and still have a bunch of 'em. Eventually I tired of trying to find a group to teach me how to play, so I bought the 1e books and started DMing for just my brother. We didn't really get all of the rules back then, but it was fun and my brother is one helluva role player. I later found that some guys I had known for a long time played and we've been playing as the core of a group ever since.

I'm 2nd ed. I remember my dad bought me the black box with the punch out and assemble "minis" that were so damn cartoonish, but I took the pieces so seriously. I was mad, I found the black box on craigslist for $25, and I couldn't buy it...

heh. Someone local has the AD&D electronic game, and it looks in reasonable shape. I remember seeing that advertised in the Sears catalog in the early 80s.

Oh, that takes me back.

Which electronic game? Eye of the beholder for SNES? Was there one I missed that wasn't console/PC? If anyone has a black box (I'll start a new thread with pics in a second) I'd be willing to buy/trade for it. That was a huge turning point in my childhood, if you read my "Stories. Share yours" thread you'll know how much it meant to me.

No, this was an electronic boardgame. I never saw it played, though I think I remember seeing an ad or two for it. I was lucky my folks got me the Red Basic set!

It was a squarish electronic board with buttons set in a grid. Pewter/lead minis were included. I'm not familiar with more than that. Sad

Well, it's got a few pictures, but HERE at boardgamegeek.

It doesn't seem to have much of a following, though. Or I'm misreading the site (which is very possible, as I've worked two 9+ hour days in a row and I'm heading to #3).
