Lazy Friday Video Post: Vintage D&D Commercial

Now I understand why people believed D&D was utterly evil. This commercial from the 1980s makes me shiver!

And did we really wear these clothes back in the ‘80?

  1. Yes, I think we did wear some of those clothes. Personally, I love how there were two females in the group. When I was gaming in the 80's, I think I meet maybe 2 girls that played out the hundreds of guys I meet. At least it seemed marketed for the right people. Let's face it, if you were a gamer in the 80's and were in your teens, you likely looked a little like these people.
