Tried to get my 11 year old son into D & D with the 4th EDition and recent 5th Edition and it just wasn't happening. I figured "why not try the old school red basic box that I fell in love with"? So far, so good…he's playing on the the 2nd part of the solo adventure on his own. He sometimes asks for help, but the way the adventure is presented makes it really simple. And of course when he's asleep I play it also!
