The Dragon's Trove began selling used Role Playing Games on-line at the tale end of 1995, borrowing some server space on a friends server. By January 1996, it was growing so fast we had to move to a hosted domain & rudimentary first web site. Over the years, we've grown and updated several times. The core focus is still on out of print Role Playing Games, we also offer some accessories, board games and card gaming products where it makes sense.
The owner, Michael Cox, has previously worked full time in the industry, owning a distributor for many years during the early 2000s. He has also been one of the game auctioneers at the Gen Con game auction and is considered one of the experts in the used RPG field.
In 2011, we were able to purchase the Dave Arneson game collection and save it from possible destruction after it was found in an abandoned storage locker. Since then a large portion of it has been sold with the help of Paul Stormberg via the Collector's Trove, while many pieces have been used in various documentaries and gone to curated game collections.
