WOTC to Release Premium-Priced Collectors Edition of OD&D
WOTC is going to release a premium-priced reprint of White Box OD&D (6th printing, I assume given the “White Box” reference) in late November for US$149.99. According to the blurb at WOTC, you get the three original booklets, Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Edritch Wizardy, and Gods, Demi-Gods, and Heroes, apparently with new cover art. From the picture this comes in a fancy wood box with some fancy dice (although neither are mentioned in the description).
Personal Opinion (which may be biased because I have the set I bought in the 1970s): While this may please collectors, it is not going to get the game played. Few people are going to pay $150 for this and actually use it at their table. Also, for $150 it should (at least) include a copy of Chainmail 3rd Edition and Swords & Spells. Color me not at that impressed, but then I buy games to play, not as collector’s items.
