Rolling the Dice on Another Adventure

Rolling the Dice on Another Adventure

I’ve been playing pen-and-paper role playing games ever since I was about seven, thanks to my visiting half-brother, and Dungeons and Dragons. Many years, game systems, and groups have passed, and it might be time to pick up the dice again. We play board games every Sunday at Fort Gibberish. Although the cast of characters […]

The vast majority of my computer or video gaming time is spent playing StarCraft 2. These days I only play with my partner wurmr, and our schedules don’t always sync up. I played the Walking Dead computer game for awhile and gave it up after a glitch didn’t save my progress. I was cruising the […]

Zak, the author of the very entertaining and insightful Playing D&D With Porn Stars blog, created an event called International Anklebiter Illustrator Day.

Chessex Pound of Dice

Chessex Pound of Dice

We’ve been playing a lot more role-playing games at the house recently. My friend Ajar is running a larger game, and we just kicked off a smaller campaign last week. You know what every gaming table needs? Dice. Lots of them. The “Pound-O-Dice” offering from Chessex seemed like the most cost-effective way to put a […]

Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

The year was 1983. I was either still seven or just turned eight. Due to the age difference between myself and my siblings, it was rare for us to really interact.

Gary Gygax, July 27, 1938 – March 4, 2008

Gary Gygax, creator of the Dungeons & Dragons and various other games, has passed away at the age of 70. I first played First Edition of D&D when I was probably seven years old, led by my half-brother who was visiting from college. In the next two-plus decades I played a variety of role-playing games, […]
