Dave Arneson's Love Affair With Japanese Monster Movies
From My Gathering Memoirs. ©2010. Robert J. Kuntz
My friend David L. Arneson moved to Lake Geneva to work for TSR in 1976. He originally roomed at the same complex as my brother, Terry Kuntz (who also worked for TSR as the first manager of the DUNGEON Hobby Shop). David soon relocated to an apartment on Wisconsin Street .
As I lived on Madison & Wisconsin and EGG still lived on Center & Wisconsin, I would often stop into David's on my way to Gary's house (note map, below).
This was often on weekends, and invariably if I didn't find Dave reading or writing, I'd find him watching his favorite Japanese monster movies. He usually had a big bowl of popcorn and was just laughing like a kid at these things; and in retrospect they were so bad they were funny. Here are some photos and links to the movies that made the designer of so many historical and fantastic games chuckle.
