Day 16: Did you remember your first Edition War? Did you win?
I think the first edition war I ever had was within myself. When I first got into D&D, I didn't really understand the distinction between the Basic and Advanced sets. I bought what I could afford - the Basic - and played that. But those Advanced books always taunted me on the shelves. Since they were big and thick and more expensive - they surely were better. Right? So I began harassing my mother for money until I could get the first three AD&D books. I don't think I ever played with the Basic after that - except in the guise of the OSR. Now I look back on Basic as a better all-around game.
So I won -and lost - my first Edition War. :)
