We got started in D&D when Gary Gygax and his wife attended a Michicon convention to peddle the very first edition of D&D rules. The very thin 3 booklet rules were so vague that I had to call Gary for many rule clarifications, and he was very helpful. We also added a lot of material, like the weapon and combat tables, because we weren't too keen on the Chainmail combat rules that D&D was based on.
