      Although ADD 2e is often dismissed by the gaming community too new for old school grognards who enjoy the random charts and seat of your pants amateur charm of the earlier editions, and too old for d20 new schoolers who like greater specificity and balance in their rules I still find it to be one of the strongest versions in the game s long history Simple, easy to teach, with options than basic without becoming overwhelming unless you let it , it also benefits from an extensive library of suppl [...]

      I love Advanced Dungeons Dragons, and this was the main edition that I spent my ADD time on Many nights of great memories with friends from the past and present spinning tales about heroes of sword and sorcery vanquishing foes from lowly goblins to the avatars of deities While I doubt that I will ever play 2nd Edition again, it played a major part in shaping my skills as both a Game Dungeon Master and as a player of RPGs and I will cherish every moment I spent playing it.

      This was the beginning of my love affair with Dungeons Dragons I cut my teeth on Palladium Books games, but coming home to Northern Michigan in the late 80 s there was only DD on the shelves of the local bookstore I remember spending countless hours with this book, and have never looked back since.

    4. Francisco Becerra on said:

      For a very long time, this was the door to the fantastic realms of ADD It is very difficult to find one not being used for long hours, stained by sodas, marked with pencils, covers worn and pages yellowed I owe a great deal of my creative skills to the constant use of this awesome book.

      This Book Went Everywhere with me18 January 2013 Well, it looked like it took TSR 12 years to actually get around to revising the Dungeons and Dragons game system to actually make it a lot playable I must admit that when they did release this edition, and I managed to get my hands on this book and boy was it popular when it was released because I remember all my friends commenting on how it was pretty much about time that they tossed the first edition and produced something that worked I was ab [...]

    6. Jim Syler on said:

      Second Edition ADD is a classic Many still believe it is the finest version of Dungeons and Dragons ever published 2e which it was notcalled at the time has advantages and disadvantages compared to other editions DD gets simpler and easier to play with every edition, at the cost of realism and complexity It also gets restrictive in some ways, to ensure that advanced players don t overpower the game with their detailed knowledge of the rules 2nd Ed which it was called has the beloved lists of no [...]

      Great stuff It s not meant to be read cover to cover, but I did twice It was that captivating for my imagination Sure, it was formal than the 1st edition but it was much clearer Loved the hours of fun it gave me and the fantasy dreams I ve had Yea, I m a nerd for this.

    8. Gabe on said:

      Yes I have read the Dungeons and Dragons Players Handbook What you gonna do about it Nothing You know why Because I have a 5 cloak of protection against people who are too cool for DD.

    9. Mark Austin on said:

      I grew up playing board games against myself My sister wasn t much into them and whatever friends I managed to scrap together for a year or two before we moved again were either disinterested from the get go or quickly became disinterested as I beat them mercilessly at whatever we played.I also grew up in a world of imagination which almost universally drifted to war I m not sure why, but my games, movies, books, shows, and idle imaginings only seem to have real staying power if they are somehow [...]

    10. St-Michel on said:

      Ok, so yes, to the average worldly citizen and reader, I am a nerd I have actually read this thing cover to cover, but hey, so what I m an RPG Fantasy fan, and seriously, the world of Dungeons Dragons opened up a whole new depth of fantasy to me that Tolkien didn t even dare breathe And so for that, I greatly appreciate it.Now, as a RPG rules book, well for one, I know it like the back of my hand It s a great introduction to the world of roleplaying, but, as hard as TSR tried to cover it all, th [...]

      One of the most imporant book of my teenage years and probably the best edition of Dungeons and Dragons Many memories.

    12. Nicholas on said:

      Honestly, not having played the game a lot when I was younger, this was still one of the most influential books I ve ever read From the artwork to the ideas, it was pretty freaking amazing I used to flip through it some days, just for a little inspiration.

    13. DanRay on said:

      If I had a dime for every hour of enjoyment and imagination this book had brought me, I could retire and play DD.

    14. Patrick on said:

      Read it back in the day when we played a game or 2 7th 8th grade and then again a few years later for fun It was a solid book when combined with some of the multitude of supplements that were published for 2nd edition I had 3 4 class oriented supplement books plus several volumes of the Encyclopedia Magica which was a fantastic set of tomes and was written with 2nd ed in mind I believe although could really be used in almost any way.

    15. Christopher Rush on said:

      It didn t really take me 15 months to read this I had it finished in only a few months, off and on, but the prospect of reading over one hundred pages of spells was a daunting task a year ago, so I took it only a few at a time and finally polished it off last night as of this writing While I didn t officially start with ADD 2E, having read a number of Basic and 1E reference books alone in my youth, many from the library, I believe, if memory serves and it does, but it doesn t do dishes , I didn [...]

      I m of a third edition kind of guy, well, 3.5 to be precise, but the first game of DD I ever played was second edition one person insisted on playing as an aurumvorax , and my current Ravenloft game is using second edition rules.I had never read the rule book for second cover to cover so when the DM told me what she had in mind I had to scramble for a copy Its really very interesting I can understand a lot of the changes that were eventually made, but the flexibility with these rules are worth [...]

    17. Rob on said:

      Certainly a balanced, logical work than the First edition Equally ot it s pluses are its lack in charm, whimsy, and, frankly, fun The first edition handbook was a strangely enjoyable read for a compilation of rules for a game This is much effective at accomplishing the purpose, but does it with less style.

    18. Some Small Silence on said:

      Ok, so it was bad Really really bad However, it was the first RPG I ever owned, and I utterly adored it.

    19. Nika on said:

      I can tell which book Ive used by the front cover pictures More like a refference book but a must have for roleplayers.

    20. Adam Cantrell on said:

      nice summary of spells for the Wizards and Priests, good art a classic.

    21. Justin on said:

      Second Edition is the worst of the editions, but it is still a fun game nonetheless What really matters is the people with whom one is playing, and not the rules involved.
