My name is Michael and I started playing D&D with the basic Mentzer set in the 80's, from there I moved on to AD&D 2nd ed. and also played some 3rd ed. after a long hiatus(filling the void with Baldurs Gate & TOEE) I discovered the OSR movement(in 2012) and started DMing my own group in January of this year(2013) using Castles & Crusades. I have really been itching to play and hope I can meet up with you guys and gals in the future for some grand adventuring!

Hi Ed,

Sorry for the delay in replying — for some reason, I didn't get a notification when you posted.

Sundays would probably work. My preference is for a shorter session (2-3 hours), if that works for you and any others.

By the way, my real name is Ed.

Hi David. Welcome aboard! Let's see if we can't get this thing started. Are Sundays good for you? Maybe we can organize something for next Sunday, if I can round up 2 or 3 more players. There's a few people not on the boards here that I can get interested.

Hi, I'm David and I play D&D.

I'm 38, married with no kids, an ex-pat Brit, and I live just across the Delaware in sunny Collingswood.

I started with Frank Mentzer's red box in the Christmas of 1982 and went on to dabble with lots of other games in my teens. Played Space 1889, Traveller, and Runequest in college — D&D 3.5 most recently. I post on (less and less frequently, actually), with the same user handle that I have here.

Outside of D&D, I'm a fan of old school (skool?) and the newer indie rpgs, tabletop miniatures games, and (possibly) board games. I have a strong preference for thin/ concise rulebooks and quick set up, as I want to get to the actual game as quickly as possible!

Another option is a bar like National Mechanics.

The folks at Brave New World on 2nd in old city are open to hosting us. They have Sundays available.

Re: Where can we play? by overeddieovereddie, 06 Oct 2010 16:53

I talked to the owner of Atomic City today. He is "open to considering" allowing a game there. They are located at 638 South Street. I'm partial to them because they are close to my home. However, they can only give us Monday or Tuesday nights. I was hoping for Sunday. I'll keep asking around.

I want to schedule this game 2 Sundays a month. I don't particularly care which 2, but I definitely want it to be a regular game. Please post your preferences for days. We will also decide on where soon.

Hi all, I'm overeddie and I play D&D.

I'm 43 years old (soon to be 44) a parent of 2, live in Center City and started playing D&D again about 6 years ago. I played a hella lot as a teenager but gave it up when I discovered punk rock and girls. Now those to things have left me cold so I return to RPGs. I currently play in a 4e campaign that, while enjoyable, has me yearning for the simplicity of Old School. So I started this site based on the very successful New York Red Box to see if I can get some old school D&D going in the City of Brotherly Love.

Just this morning I was thinking about Redcap's Corner. It seems like a logical place. There is also Brave New World in Old City and I was considering talking to the folks at Atomic City Comics on South street. A Penn building is also a great option.

Re: Where can we play? by overeddieovereddie, 17 Sep 2010 15:19

I'm a UPenn student; it might be possible for us to use some of the Penn buildings. Huntsman Hall might be a good place, but I'm not sure what sort of permissions (if any) are needed for that to happen. I can check with some friends and let you know.

There's also a gaming store called Redcap's Corner in University City, near 40th and Locust. They have lots of room for gaming and like having groups in, but depending on the night this can be a bit hectic - Friday night Magic games and so forth.

Hey Allandaros! Welcome. Right now we have all the room in the world since it's basically me so far. The plan I have is to run using just in time scheduling. So you can drop in and out as needed. Let me know what your preferences are for time and place.

If you want to run something, you can start a Campaign page or on the forums…

Re: Feel free to muck about by overeddieovereddie, 16 Sep 2010 17:29

Hi! I popped in here from The Mule Abides - I'm an old-school gamer who is in the Philly area and definitely looking to join some gaming, if there is room somewhere! (I would like to start running a game at some point also, but a) that takes time and I need to figure out my schedule, and b) it will be a mishmash of BECMI/AD&D/LotFP stuff plus a gazillion house rules, so possibly not fully germane here.)

Where can we play?

in discussion Kickoff / Games » Where can we play?

Other Red Box groups play in cafes and delis. Where should we play?

OK, I've started it. All members should feel free to create pages, work on the forums, etc. If there are issues, post them here. Thanks,


Feel free to muck about by overeddieovereddie, 16 Sep 2010 17:04

I am going to run a real Red Box campaign (possible using Labyrinth Lord as well) with the working title Reich of Three Sisters. I will put background up soon on the campaign page. I will also create a forum topic for the game.
