#0 Late to the Party - RPG a Day a.k.a. #RPGaDAY

To celebrate Gen Con, the latest writing challenge on the game blogosphere is RPGaDAY. Brainchild of Autocratik, RPGaDAY challenges bloggers to write about their earliest, strangest and favorite (er, favourite) game experiences.

As usual, I am several days late to this party. Some of the challenges forced me to think back to my earliest gaming experiences over 30 years ago. This was not just the start of my role-playing hobby; this was the germ of game designing that launched what is now my career. How did I approach design in that awkward, nascent age? Also, it is an excuse to write about some unusual items in my collection.

I will create links to my entire series here as I post them.
