@Quickleaf and @gamerprinter, did either of you get a chance to vote before the poll closed down? If you did, or you're not interested in voting, no worries. But if you do want to vote, you could either go for one of the polls I'm running on other sites (rpg.net, r/DnD), or I could temporarily reopen voting here. Let me know.

Incidentally, the polling so far on other sites is also massively favoring the 1970s-1980s Basic sets as folks' first owned product. (The sole exception is the poll for the 5e subreddits, but even there it's tied for second with the 5E starter sets.) Those boxed sets sure were something!

Sorry, I responded to the thread without even seeing the poll in the OP, so no, I missed out. But while I've been playing since 1977, I initially wasn't the DM, so I didn't actually buy anything until the release of AD&D 1e, where I purchased the starter hard backs. I'd be willing to vote if you temporarily opened, however.

normally have a good memory for these sorts of questions, but in this case I have no clue, I had been rpging for several years before I played any DND.
