What is D&D?
Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy role playing game that was created in 1974 by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. The game had over 3 million players worldwide by 1981. Since 1997, Wizards of the Coast (a subsidy of Hasbro) has published the game. D&D is credited with being the start point of modern role playing games.
Why D&D with the library?
D&D encourages critical thinking, creativity, and teamwork. The game also promotes math skills. It is also credited with getting a lot of people out of their shells and socializing with others. And with the library, you can do this from the comfort of your own home.
How will we play?
Our Dungeon Master, Mark Wood, will create a world for you to dive into. He will walk you through how to play, how to create your character, and will then host a game you participate in with your very own character!
What should I expect?
