Dungeons and Dragons (aka DnD or D&D) is a fantasy role-playing game that was created in 1974. As the popularity of the game grew, it became referenced in pop culture through out the 70s and 80s. But you may be familiar with it from the Netflix show Stranger Things! But if you’re not familiar with this popular game and are interested in learning more, we’re here to help!
The game is set in a medieval fantasy world and you, along with a group of others, are led through an adventure by one player who assumes the role of a storyteller, or the Dungeon Master. Before the game starts, the Dungeon Master makes up story events or chooses them from a published guide. Then when the players get their turn they can respond in different ways to create a unique gaming experience.
Before the game, you and the other players create your own character. First you choose a race (human, elf, dwarf etc.), a class (Fighter, Rogue, Wizard etc.) and skill sets. The skill sets that you choose will help determine how well you do in certain situations. If you do well in situations, points can be gained. Sometimes difficult actions can fail and this can be determined by rolling one or more of the game’s polygonal dice.
