A tour through the Original D&D rules, via Something Awful

These guys are always funny, but when they turn to D&D geekery, they hit my sweet spot.

It must have been strange to be the writers of the original D&D rules. Those guys were just writing a little addendum to the Chainmail wargame rules. They had no idea what they were starting, and they didn't know they'd find an audience of folks who had never played wargames. I know I found my way to wargames by starting with D&D. I guess that makes D&D a gateway drug to the much more expensive Warhammer, doesn't it?
