The original Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set (TSR 1001) was published by TSR, by TSR, Inc. in 1977.

Although the Basic was not fully compatible with Advance Set was Advanced d Dungeons & Dragons , players were expected to continue play beyond third level by moving to AD&D , which began to be released released later that year. Holmes preferred preferred a lighter tone with more room for personal improvisation, while Gary Gygax, who wrote the advanced game, wanted an expansive sive game with rulings on any any conceiva conceivable ble situation situation which which might come up during play, a document which could be used to arbitrate disputes at tournaments. The ﬁrst Basic Set was available as a 48-page stand-alone rulebook featuring artwork by by David C. Sutherland III, III , or as part of a boxed a boxed set, set , which was packaged in a larger, more visually appealing box than to original boxed set, allowing the game to be stocked on retail shelves and targeted at the general public via toy stores.  The boxed set included a set of polyhedral dice and supplemental materials.

After the release of the AD&D game, game, the Basic Set saw a major major revi revisi sion on in 1981 1981 by editor editor Tom Moldv Moldvay ay.. This edition drew solely on the original D&D boxed set for for inspira inspiration tion,, rather rather than includi including ng material material from from its 1
supplements. The game was not brought in line with AD&D but instead further away from that ruleset, and thus the basic D&D game became a separate and distinct product from TSR’s ﬂagship game AD&D . The former was promoted as a continuation of the tone of original D&D , while AD&D was an advancement of the mechanics. The revised version of the set included a larger, sixty-four page rule book with a red border and a color cover by Erol Otus, the module B2 The Keep on the Borderlands , six polyhedral dice,  and a marking crayon. The book was predrilled for use in a three-ringed binder, and the complete set of miniature polyhedral dice came in a heatsealed bag with a small black wax crayon to use in marking the dice. Cardboard chits were brieﬂy included in place of dice when TSR’s source dried up.  With the revision of the Basic Set, discrete rulesets for higher character levels were introduced as expansions for the basic game.  The Moldvay Basic Set was immediately followed by the accompanying release of an Expert Set edited by Dave Cook that supported character levels four through fourteen, with the intent that players would continue with the Expert Set . The revised rulebooks were visually distinct from the original rules: the Holmes booklet had a blueprint-style pale blue cover, while the The cover of the player’s rulebook from the 1983 version of the Moldvay Basic Set and Cook Expert Set booklets had Basic Set.

In 1983, the Basic Set was revised again, this time by Frank Mentzer, and redubbed Dungeons & Dragons Set 1: Basic Rules . The set included a sixty-four page Players Manual , a forty-eight page Dungeon Masters Rulebook , six dice, and in sets in which the dice were not painted, a crayon. The 1983 revision was packaged in a distinctive red box, and featured cover art by Larry Elmore. Between 1983 and 1985, the system was revised and expanded by Mentzer as a series of ﬁve boxed sets, including the Basic Rules (red cover), Expert Rules (blue), Companion Rules (teal, supporting levels ﬁfteen through twenty-ﬁve), Master Rules (black, supporting levels twenty-six through thirty-six), and Immortal Rules (gold, supporting Immortals, characters who had transcended levels).  Instead of an adventure module, the Basic Set rulebooks included a solo adventure and an introductory scenario to be run by the Dungeon Master.

In 1991, TSR released a replacement for the Basic Set labelled as The New Easy-to-Master Dungeons & Dragons Game, and known as the “Black Box”. This version, principally designed by Troy Denning, made very few changes to the game, but introduced a card-based tutorial system for new players, inspired by the SRA reading program, and included support for characters up to The rules for the game were little changed from the Moldﬁfth level, instead of the third level limit of prior Basic vay set, but the presentation was overhauled into a more Set versions.

Doug Cowie reviewed the 1983 version of the Basic Set for Imagine magazine and gave it a quite positive review. He noted that it was not just a money-making scheme on the part of the publisher, trying to sell a new game to existing players. According to Cowie, while the rules stay the same, thus allowing those with the older version to continue using their sets, the presentation has changed. He approved of the fact that “at long last”,  a game company released a product that explains to someone new to role-playing games how to get started. He also praised the “vastly improved”  cover art and interior illustrations, but noted that the box contains a set of “dreadful TSR dice”. Cowie was especially pleased by the Players Manual , where the introduction is not followed by character generation, but rather a solo adventure that allows the reader to start playing “within ﬁve minutes of opening the box”. According to Cowie, this allows players to learn the rules step by step, by playing solo. He called this an “excellent idea”.  The Players Manual contains two solo scenarios and “some town business”. Cowie continued his review by pointing out that the Dun geon Masters Rulebook includes the normal rules for running a game as well as an introductory scenario involving some wilderness and exploration of a castle. Cowie said that, unlike its predecessor, this boxed sets lacks a separate module, but his experienced playtesters found the
