Old Dungeons and Dragons Reprint! But there is the bad news! The PRICE!

Really?
$149.99 for OD&D Reprints in a wooden box with cool dice?

For that price it can rot on the shelf as far as I am concerned.

Bad decision.

A premium, deluxe edition of the 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, introducing concepts that have persisted throughout later editions. It included three small rules booklets in a white box.

This deluxe, premium reprint of the original "White Box" features new packaging and includes the following seven booklets:

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 new cover art but is otherwise a faithful reproduction of the original, including original interior art.

  1. I thought 150 was fair given it's the 7 books and a nice box with dice.

  2. Any sign of this appearing on the new WotC pdf site yet?

  3. $150? I think they'll sell some to hardcore collectors, and that's about it. I predict a number of puzzled gamers (who never heard of the white box and play shinier new eds.) this Christmas who get this from a spouse or s.o.
    If WotC is actually inerested in reviving OD&D, and I assume they are not, they could edit it into a single volume I guess.
    Come to think of it, wouldn't the 3 base books be your 'basic' game, and adding the supplements an 'advanced' version?
