Introduction to White Box Sets

White Box Sets

These sets started showing up in dealer catalogs in 1981 [check catalogs for the season], and retailed for $14.95. These sets were introduced as a means to improve sales.


The white box set range included the following sets:

  • 3511 Magic Users and Clerics
  • 3512 Fighting Adventurers
  • 3513 Level 1 Monsters
  • 3514 Level 2 Monsters
  • 3515 Level 3 Monsters
  • 3516 Level 4 & 5 Monsters
  • 3517 Level 6 & 7 Monsters
  • 3518 Lair of the Dragon
  • 3519 Giants
  • 3520 Demons and Devils

Each set came shrinkwrapped in a box

Heritage commissioned artists David T. Wenzel to create the artwork for these sets. The only covert art that was not complete by David was for set 3516; Level 4 & 5 Monsters. Due to time constraints, David could not complete the colorization, and David Helber (art Director for Heritage) completed the colorization.

  1. Need to add more information:
    Add listing of all the white sets, links to white box painting guides (unedited), add photo of foam inside box, and add sample photo of photo sheet included on back of sets
