New “Red Box” in the Works

Looks familiar?

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new introductory boxed set for 4E. As you can see from the picture, the boxed set is red. And according to WotC’s twitter feed, they’re calling it the “Red Box.” (You may have to scroll down a bit to find it.)

What does this mean for old-school players? Possibly some confusion over the term “Red Box” in the context of Dungeons & Dragons. Maybe even a lot of confusion. What happens when you advertise a Red Box D&D game, expecting people of an old-school persuasion to show up, and you get players who’re expecting to play Fourth Edition? (Or vice versa?)

    What happens is a glorious mashup, causing Cafe 28 to hire Greg Gillis as resident DJ to seamlessly blend together old- and new-school hits of our standard playing-in-public soundtrack in celebration! (I’m unable to imagine what Eye of the Tiger and Poker Face will sound like together, but that’s why I’m not him.)
