Critical Hit: How D&D is Taking the World by Storm*

Over time Dungeons and Dragons has changed from this game played by oddballs in the basement of their parents’ houses to much more mainstream! With the rise of TV shows like Stranger Things – who’s watching Series 3 by the way??? – D&D is taking over! Or at least it’s taking over my life…

Critical Hit! How to create a D&D Character to Suit You

One of the biggest things that can be daunting when starting up is making your Dungeons and Dragons character. It can seem a little permanent – what if you don’t like the character and you’re a bit stuck with them? What if they aren’t convincing or easy to RP? So I’ve decided to share how I went about creating my characters, to try and help you on your way to playing D&D!

Critical Hit! Picking your Ideal Class in Dungeons and Dragons

One of my new self-imposed goals for 2019 is to write more about the nerdy/geeky stuff that I enjoy! Things like D’n’D (aka Dungeons and Dragons), which I wrote a post about last year.

(He’s the brains of the outfit.)

A Geek’s Guide: 5 Ways Dungeons and Dragons can Change your Life

I’m relatively new to table-top role play games. I’ve always loved board games, and branched out into some casual strategy games recently with a group of friends.

A Geek’s Guide: Where to Start with Geeky Board Games

So many of us want to break into more nerdy card games and geeky board games, but where to start? I am quite lucky in that I have a great group of friends who introduced me into this world of geeky board games and card games! Sometimes you can’t commit enough time to a full Dungeons and Dragons campaign (although I did for the first time this week and it was AMAZING). Sometimes an awfully complicated strategy game can also take hours to set up.

Sometimes you just need to start small, and aim high.
