When We Were Wizards
WHEN WE WERE WIZARDS charts the rise and fall of Gary Gygax, the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons and co-founder of TSR, the company that published it. Despite its enduring popularity, few fans know the true story of ambition, disillusionment, rancor, and betrayal behind the game’s meteoric rise. As D&D took off in the late 70s and early 80s, family bonds were tested, friendships were betrayed, and personal demons were unleashed. For Gary, realizing the American Dream was only the first step; hanging on to it was even harder.
