This is an excellent product, and a great follow on from the basic version. I first picked up the Easy to Master (Black Box) edition of D&D in 1991, and followed that up with the Rules Cyclopedia, but I really like seeing how the rules of the system have evolved over time.

Obviously, this product gets only 4/5, since it is not perfect by any means, especially when compared to today's standard. However, it does give an immense insight in to just how far D&D has come over the past 40 years.

Hopefully, the other rulebooks will also be added here in the future. I am curious to see exactly what the Companion and Master sets added, even though I believe these were released under the BECMI revisions, but I much prefer the single book format of B/X ed. for some reason...

Having (regretfully) dispensed with my original hard copy- I am thrilled to buy a PDF and print it out. Excellent, flawless scan with great contrast.
This is such a brilliant website. To be able to get old D&D modules and rulebooks- and Judges Guild stuff I could never afford when I was a kid is brilliant. The PDFs are very reasonable priced (although I find printing the out is proving to be extremely costly in ink costs!)

Awesome! It's even the version before the blue boxed set I had as a kid. Well worth it!!!

I started role playing with the basic D&D boxed set (the red book with "the keep on the borderlands" adventure) back in 1983, spurred on by a description in the first chapter of the book E.T. Since then I have purchased innumerable other RPG's, most of which have ended up being hocked at the local game store or passed on to others.
My original basic and expert books, however, I still have on the shelf, and while I think the mechanics aren't the finest tools about, they are adequate, to get the job done. Fourth ed, particularly, is way to balanced for my liking and is just the sort of thing to make me want to get out my red and blue books and plan a new campaign.

I had forgotten how elegant the Moldvay BX system was. Even after all these years, this is probably the best start to D&D available. Everything is easy to find, the rules are simple and concise. Some of the retroclones approach this level of elegance, but Moldvay 'git thar fustest with the mostest!" This may be the best version of D&D ever.
The PDF is beautiful. Art by Jeff Dee and Erol Otus looks great in this scan and the text is completely searchable. Outstanding!
I am looking forward to running B2 with these rules!
Sorry about the copied review, but combined with the Moldvay basic rules, the Expert set makes a complete game.

This was the 1981 followup to the D&D Basic set. Designed for the Moldvay Basic there was even a little bit about what to do if you had the Holmes Basic.

This expanded the game to level 14 and for most of us it was all we needed for a very long time.
I loved the introduction of all the new undead like Vampires and Spectres (was a big horror fan even then) and that little map of the Known World. I starred at that map for hours, learning lands and names of places far off and never were.
Plus all the new spells! The options of spells for my cleric and magic-users were beyond my 11-year old brain's reckoning at the time.

At 5 bucks this is a criminal steal. I wore my old copy of my expert book out, now I have a PDF to go back too anytime I like. Combine it with the Basic book and some adventures and you are set. Everything you need to play D&D just like the good old days. No skills, no feats, no attacks of opportunity, but plenty of flexibility and action.

I love newer games, but this is the one. The one that keeps me coming back. Back to the Keep, back to Glantri and back to D&D.
