In my continuing quest to make Learn Tabletop RPGs a more effective tool for introducing newcomers to the joys of pen & paper gaming, I’m asking for your help.
I’m looking for info about how gamers were first introduced to tabletop RPGs. For example:
- My older brother brought me into his AD&D game
- I saw some people playing Call of Cthulhu at the library, and they invited me to join them
- I saw the D&D Red Box at a Borders bookstore, bought it, and persuaded a few of my friends to give it a try with me
Warning: I’ll select one answer at random and that poster will receive a special bit o’ gaming goodness.
So how were you introduced to tabletop RPGs?

My friend’s mother bought him the 3E intro box set, and after that I was hooked

I love Eclipse Phase
