    Great adventures were had after that day too.

  3. Just found your site while googling to try to remember for sure if I got the same set in 80 or 81- looks like I started D&D on the same day you did! '81 was the best Christmas ever- got the Basic Set and the Atari 2600. I doubt I will ever be able to give my kids a Christmas as good.
