A role-playing game invented in the mid-70s by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.

Don Woods is sometimes credited with turning Crowther's cave map into a fantasy game, but Woods told avventuretestuali that while he was familiar with Tolkien, he had never played any role-playing game until an Adventure fan introduced it to him.
