[Infographic] What's in the Blue Box?

This chart breaks down the Holmes blue box ruleset by subject area. Hope you find it interesting. I'm going to do Moldvay next and see how they compare. If anyone out there has the 4e "red box" set and wants to send me a page count by subject area, that would be fabulous -- I'd love to see a side-by-side comparison.


  1. I love Holmes. It is still my preferred edition of the game.

    1. I'm always curious about what you do after level 3 is reached. I know there are add-ons out there for higher-level play.

  2. What about the Mentzer Red Box as well? Would think that would bridge the gap comparing the 4e fake reprint?

  3. Alas, I don't own a copy of Mentzer. If anybody wants to send me a breakdown, I'll do an updated chart. No one seems to have a 4e red box set -- I might buy one myself!
