Dungeons & Dragons Club, 1983

1983 Dungeons and Dragons club

Presumably this shot comes from the Menlo School Yearbook of 1983. Menlo is a middle and high school in Atherton, California. I love the dragon, but shouldn’t he be holding a polyhedral die?

What do we think is playing on that boombox (top left)? Thriller?

    I can’t believe there are no girls in this club. I think the picture is creative with them continuing the items that Are cut off in the picture as part if the drawing, but why draw a cool dragon and put a f***ing heart tattoo on his shoulder? Might as well written Mom in the middle of it. And is the dragon wearing a pearl necklace?

    I think probably the editorial staff did the art, and they didn’t know much about D&D. The layout is damn clever, though. And there’s one girl in the club! She’s just not pictured.

    1983? Probably Come On Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners was wailing. Haha! Nice site.

    My guess is Talking Heads. Thanks for this great site!
