Day 7 – Favorite Edition
Another difficult question. It’s easier for me to list my LEAST favorite edition, but that’s not the question. I started with B/X D&D (the Tom Moldvay Basic and Expert boxed sets) and have a great respect for the elegance of its simplicity (relative to what followed). I’m currently playing 5th edition and I’m loving the modern mechanics with the feel that is familiar from all my years of AD&D. But, I haven’t played it enough to say it’s my absolute favorite edition yet, since I spent many more years playing AD&D 2nd Edition (I played it through it’s entire life-cycle, in fact). If you’re going to hold my feet to the fire, I’m going to go with AD&D 2nd Edition, warts and all.
