October 1st is Dave Arneson Game Day

arneson_10_01Today, October 1st is Dave Arneson Game Day. He would have been 69 years old today.

As Dave once said, he liked playing “his” D&D. He likely meant his original final draft of the rules that were never published, we like to think it also means that each person plays their own version of the game regardless of the published rules. That, we believe, is the true genius of Dungeons & Dragons; that we can all be playing the same game, but that no two games are ever exactly alike.

Thanks Dave! You left us too soon, but you gave us something lasting!

So get out there…play “your” D&D. And while you’re at it, kill some giant frogs too!
