WOTC to Reprint AD&D 1e Core Books to Benefit Gygax Memorial Fund — 2 Comments

  1. I think they want to use it as a combination effort to get donations for the memorial and to get people to physical game stores. Making it a store-only offer forces customers to spend time in physical stores and helps the retailers that carry their stuff. If they sell it online or through online retailers, a lot of people will order multiple copies and snatch them up for resale before regular hobby players get a chance to get them.

  2. I'm lucky that I have access to some great gaming stores here in St Louis. I've got my set of reprints reserved already, and can't wait for April! I think that if they sell out quickly, we'll see a much larger reprint a bit down the line for the rest of the world.

    Who knows, maybe they'll even offer the old modules as PDFs again. After all, we'll need adventures too, right?
