Dungeons & Dragons

My offbeat articles for NRO often generate the strongest responses from readers. I’ve received a ton of email about my story from last Friday on D&D–much of it from fully certified adults, many of them married and with kids, who say they still play. I’ve found myself sneaking back the the official D&D website all week long, just to poke around. I’ve been delighted to learn that the game is no relic from the 1980s, but a thriving hobby and business.
