Rank #2: Episode 10: Holmes Basic Dungeons & Dragons.
It’s the grandaddy of Basic D&D, the blue book edited by Dr. J. Eric Holmes! This little gem from the late 1970s brings us the question of trying to sell RPGs in mass market stores. It also begs other questions, such as how many ogres you need to mug to level up, why unicorns blow, and what vampires are doing in a game that limits players’ characters to levels 1-3? All this and more will be answered on this episode of Save for Half! No ogres were harmed in the making of this episode, not even the ones with 500 gold pieces in their bags.

Rank #1: Episode 100: The Rise and Fall of TSR.
YOUR HOSTS: Dan & John. SYNOPSIS: We take a look behind the wizard's curtain to some of the stories that made it out of TSR, hopefully constructing a framework that will let us see perhaps why such a successful company like TSR had such a big fall. We talk about the early successes, the devastating losses (RIP Don Kaye), the betrayals, the bad decisions, and that business deal they made back in the 80s that probably killed the company in the end. Please keep in mind that much of what happened back then is heresay, and we tried our best to discuss things we've heard from multiple sources. But, we may have missed some stuff, or misheard some stuff. A big and controversial conversation for #100!
