The role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons is having a moment. In fact, most fantasy games are, gaining popularity through shows like The Witcher, which offer the audience a chance to explore new worlds. And as far as games are concerned, Dungeons and Dragons opens itself to limitless possibilities.
Where most board and video games follow a single story line, Dungeons and Dragons, with its charts and maps, doesn’t. The players control everything about their characters, from personality to dialogue, and if players don’t feel like following the story into a fight scene, they can choose to wander through a forest as a group instead.
Like all games, Dungeons and Dragons is a way to socialize and spend time with your friends. During a pandemic, that’s easier said than done. But if you are interested in trying the game, there are many online options you can try and groups you can be a part of. If anything, Dungeons and Dragons provides a change from the usual board games.
