An Experience in Heroic Adventure Dragon Quest

game

Around 1980, role-playing games neared the peak of their popularity, after the genre's official begining in the mid-1970s. Besides the giant TSR, which was responsible for the Dungeons & Dragons brand, other manufacturers quickly ramped up to produce the fantasy game sets and systems. SPI, out of New York was originally a war games publisher, and the firm also published the influential "Strategy and Tactics" magazine. It had some success with its Dragon Quest fantasy role-playing game series. Rochesterian Mike Lawler purchased and used this Dragon Quest game as a child, and this set includes notes he made then for character records as well as pieces of the set punched out for play.
