A 40th year reminiscence

Today seems a good day to remember this. I met Gary Gygax once. He was a guest at a UK GenCon in the nineties. I queued up for hours to meet him (my mates weren’t bothered). He signed my programme and I thanked him for giving me my lifelong passion. I asked him if he still played at all. He said mostly Chainmail when he got the chance. A true gent, I was honoured to have spent a few minutes with him.

  1. I met Gary Gygax when he was at Gen Con UK 2000. Only very briefing it must be said. My better “claim to fame” was meeting and drinking with Ed Greenwood at Gen Con UK 2001 ;)
