  • Everybody, Roll for Initiative | How to Start Playing D&D

    Remember when Dungeons & Dragons was a game that turned wholesome young people into Satan loving demons? Thankfully those days are long behind us (I’m sure someone’s mom still thinks this somewhere, sorry kid).  D&D, along with the thousands of other Role Playing Games that have come in its wake, has gone from taboo loser activity to cultural mainstay.  It was even recently inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame for being a gaming icon.  D&D has been around so long that there are now generations playing it.  I’ve met entire families that play the game around their kitchen table, including their 5 year old.  More and more people these days have expressed interest in wanting to play, but are unsure of where to start.  Well fear not, I’m here to help.

What makes this game really appealing is its unique turn order and number of players.  Whenever the Active Player takes one of five actions, other players may also follow suit and perform the same action for a higher price.  Players can also use opponents resources generators to build their own stuff.  This combined with the rule of “you can’t have multiples of the same building in your …
