Thoughts about D&D from Across the Web

On February 1, we’ll launch a month-long contest on Goodreads. We’re giving away 10 pre-release copies of our book, Dungeons & Dreamers: A story of how computer games created a global community.

One of the narrative threads in the book is how the game Dungeons & Dragons influenced game developers for twenty years, and how the elements of community and storytelling from D&D have permeated virtual worlds.

In fact, it’s hard to understate how important the game has been beyond the world of computer games. In celebration of D&D’s birthday and its importance in understanding virtual culture, here’s an ever-growing list of people writing about their experiences with the game. (You can read the first part of the list here.)
