    Hahaha. Well yes, you’re right. It’s why it was followed by AD&D and not D&D 5.0. (Did we know what .0 meant back then?).

    We can’t even say 4e is Wizards of the Coast 4e because it’s really WotC 3e.

      The funny thing is, if they’re including a 1978 copyright then the editions as being counted are:
      1974 – Original White Box
      1977 – Blue Box
      1978 – AD&D Player’s Handbook
      1981 – Magenta Box shown here.

    Yes, one question.
    There are four listing of previous editions. Therefore the book depicted is the ‘fifth’ edition?

    I just came into possesion of 2 copies of this awesome box set and one of the expert. The hard part is getting people to play.

    Strangely enough, I meant the Mentzer Basic Set.

  5. Humorously enough, I recall that the introduction to the AD@D second edition claimed that is was not 4th edition and so everyone could breath a sigh of relief.
