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 (plus, reference sheets):
- 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, while the interior retains nostalgic original art. Booklets are packaged in an engraved illustrated wooden storage case.
This version of D&D, often called “Original D&D” or “OD&D,” was co-authored by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson and hails from the game’s infancy, before role-playing games were known. Original White Box rule sets can sell for hundreds of dollars.
The deluxe reprint set will be released on November 19, 2013 for $150.
Rovio Entertainment has released Amazing Alex a new physics puzzler representing the company’s first departure from its venerable Angry Birds franchise. The new game puts players in the role of a whiz kid with a boundless imagination and a houseful of toys where they are challenged to build creative, chain reaction solutions to accomplish various tasks ranging from battling cardboard robots to cleaning up Alex’s room. Players build elaborate Rube Goldberg devices from a collection of toys that bounce, pop, ricochet, bash and crash into each other; most puzzles can be solved in more than one way and users can share their most creative solutions with their friends and see what their friends have come up with as well.
Amazing Alex includes 100 built-in levels and users can also design their own levels and share them with friends or worldwide using 35 different interactive objects set in four different locations. A gallery of user-contributed levels is expected to add to the replayability and Rovio also promises regular free updates with its own new level packs. Amazing Alex is a universal app requiring iOS 4.2 or later and is available from the App Store for $1.
