When did I start gaming?

Cover of Dragon Magazine #56

Upper bound

A while ago, a post on Grognardia got me wondering when I started gaming. Like a lot of folks, I started with Basic D&D, specifically the blue box that had B2: Keep on the Borderlands. Judging by the Acaeum website, it was probably 7th edition. I got fairly well into the game and acquired the PHB and DMG, and got a subscription to Dragon magazine for the holidays, starting with issue 56. That puts an upper limit of 1982 on when I got into gaming, and more likely means I started in about 1981. That certainly sounds about right.
