Thoughts from Across the Web on the 40th Anniversary of D&D

In just a few days, Dungeons & Dragons will celebrate its 40 anniversary, which has prompted people across the Web to reflect on what the game meant to them over the years.

Obviously, John and I have written a book about the impact of the game on computer game culture, which is one of the dominate digital entertainment forms of our lifetimes. We even hosted a little contest where people told us their favorite role-playing stories. But it’s interesting to read the game’s impact of individuals, whose stories all have similar themes.

I’d love to hear your stories and recollections about the impact of Dungeons & Dragons, or role-playing games, on your life.
