White Box, as assembled by Charlie Mason, is an awesome gaming tool! I am an old gamer, and i have been playing the game since 1975. i started with the original white box and have tried the game in all its incarnations. But i still love the old rules, and i'm a huge fan of the OSR movement. Sure the game is easy to learn and play, and nastalgic, but it is primarily a tribute to those facets of the game that got us hooked in the first place.
Waying in at 170 pages, White Box would be a prize at $10.00, but its free! You need to download this game and play it! The book is laid-out well, and is an improvement on other editions of the game. The Will McAusland art is beautiful and evocative. Sure it's from his clip-art packs, but it looks great and was thoughtfully placed within this book.
The print-on-demand copy of this book is excelently constructed, sturdy and ready for rough use at the table. At less than $6.00 for the soft cover I plan to get multiple copies and hand them out to my players. Spread the love! Lulu also has different covers availible. I got the Stefan Poag cover and it looks great!
GET THIS GAME AND PLAY THE HELL OUT OF IT!!
