D&D was the gateway to me for gaming of all sorts. Without GG and compay, I fear I would be just another sports nut, or GOLFER.

Godspeed Mr, Gygax. We who game will never forget your contributions to gaming.

If it wasn't for Gary Gygax many of us may not be posting on this site at the moment. I'll have to get out all my old books and games and relive a few fond memories.

He gave us many great memories, opened windows in our minds, and created comrades that still mean the world to me..

Rest in peace Dungeon Master

If it wasn't for Gary, I dare say I would not have had a reason to cross the state line into Wisconsin and make all those treks to Lake Geneva and GenCon... except of course for beer.

Is there a cleric in the house?

Wait! Wait, Gary! I have a potion for that! Or a Ring of Resurrection.....

... oh Damn!

Another of the Old Guard from my youth has passed away.

D&D isn't what I think of Gary the most for but it's his wonderful design of Alexander the Great from Guidon games and then remade by AH. also his Alexanders Other Battles game kit from Guidon and his game Little Big Horn from TSR.
I learned more about ancient wargaming and tactics from that Alexander game then I did from books. You could really see in your minds eye the action taking place. To this day it's still a favorite of mine.

Yes Gary,You will be missed by us all.

My copy still has the locations of the dungeons and towns I marked on it for my first attempt at a D&D campaign.

Played outdoor survival many of times when I was a kid...avoid the desert at all cost! ;-)

What a pioneer he was. The arrival of D&D on the wargaming scene transformed gaming in ways nobody could have foreseen back then. I still have my original rules set (in the tan box) with a copy of Chainmail and Avalon Hill's OUTDOOR SURVIVAL....remember that?
