I’ve been playing D&D for a long time
-- all the way back to the days of the very first books. There was only a DM Guide and a Players Handbook! I wish I had one share of Gary Gygax’s original stock!
My adult kids are playing now and have asked the old fart to play again for kicks. I’ve having a great time and it’s a rare treat to “hang out” them as adults. I look forward to a great many wonderful evenings ahead rolling those funny little dice!
