Did Mentzer and Gygax play together?

+1
−0

Did Gary Gygax and Frank Mentzer play together in one more sessions of D&D (or some other roleplaying game)?

They worked at TSR and co-authored D&D products. One would expect one of them to have run a game for the other, or them to have played in a shared game, but expectation is not the same as knowledge.

The context for the question is frivolous: this is relevant for determining Gygax numbers (in analogue to Erdős and Bacon numbers).

I can confirm that they played board games together. Mentzer is a fan of Ticket to Ride, and used to play it with Gygax. (This is per a conversation I had with Mentzer.) Doesn't quite answer your question, but does confirm they gamed together in some form.

Ticket to ride, as in the board game from 2004? (2 comments)
