Here’s an interesting audio story from NPR’s Morning Edition entitled: Dungeons and Dragons Turns 30.
This Thursday night in Indianapolis, fans of role-playing and war games will gather for the annual GenCon convention. And this year, they’ll be marking the 30th anniversary of the most popular game in the genre’s history — Dungeons and Dragons, known by its fans by the shorthand “D and D.”
In the modern era of virtual reality, NPR’s Rick Karr reports that the original, unplugged version of the game remains popular and has proved a key influence on the next generation of video games.
