A Portrait of Young Geeks Playing D&D (1985/1986)

D&D 1986-2

Via MainlyCats, we behold the tail end of a late-night session (the red splotch on the table was a candle) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK. Specifically, the lads are in the kitchen of the Waveney Terrace building, a section of the university known for its Spartan accommodations. Or, as the UEA Alumni Association put it in 2005, when Waveney was demolished:

Much loved, Waveney Terrace opened in 1972; what it lacked in aesthetic charm was compensated for by a sense of community and character.

Read an account of Waveney in the ’80s here. There’s also a Flickr pool dedicated to the place.
