Wow! Designed by Gary Gygax & fought on a sand table - like attendees of early Gen Cons. Exciting miniatures game heavily incorporated into D&D!

This classic Chainmail fantasy scenario, originally designed by Gary Gygax, co-author of the original D&D game and founder of Gen Con, will be conducted on the Legends of Wargaming Sand Table ensconced at the center of the Gen Con 50 Horticultural Hall exhibit on the 50-yard-line of Lucas Oil Stadium! The Battle for the Brown Hills was first played by members of Gary's game clubs, the Lake Geneva Tactical Studies Association and the Castle & Crusade Society in 1971. Test your tactical skills in this exciting miniatures game that is the roots of the original Dungeons & Dragons game. This game will feature 40mm Elastolin figures by Hausser and dime store conversions of vintage plastic figures for fantasy creatures - just like Gary used!

Warnings: The event was originally listed with rules of "Chainmail (1st)." It has been changed to "Chainmail (1st Edition)."
