This article is about the real-world game series. For the history of the fictional planet, see History of the world of Eamon.

The history of Eamon is nearly as long as the history of the personal computer itself, extending over 40 years from the game's origins in Des Moines in the 1970s, through its growth and expansion in the 1980s and 1990s, through the rise of new ports in the 2000s, to ongoing development in the 2010s and 2020s. The game, along with the many associated adventures, clubs, newsletters, websites, and variants that it's inspired, is the product of hundreds of imaginative creators and the history of their efforts is documented in this article.
