I’ve posted here before about playing Dungeons & Dragons with my kids. We played a few nights together last Summer, but most of our family game nights in the months since were spent playing board games or poker. But, as the coronavirus forced us all to stay put far more often than we’d all prefer,… Continue reading D&D in the Age of the Lockdown
We try to have a weekly family game night. Usually, this is a board game or similar. The kids know that I have a bunch of old D&D books and are generally familiar with the game. A couple of weeks ago, a new D&D Essentials box set was released. This incorporates a new mechanism so… Continue reading Family Game Night
While I might not be the strongest believer in fate, I happily recognize and accept serendipity when it occurs. I had signed up for the lastest Dungeons & Dragons Worldwide Game Day â€” to get players familiar with the new Dark Sun Campaign Setting supplement â€” with my local gaming group.

Sometime in the Fall 0f 2008, I joined a group of folks I met through a Meetup at Mike’s place in Spring Hill to play 4th Edition D&D. This is a back-post of some photos I took from a couple of games in February 2009. The original photos (and comments) are on Flickr.
I played D&D at Mike’s place on Sunday evening. We play-tested a new LFR adventure before its release later this year. The areas above represent the bottom and top floor of a lighthouse the party was storming to take back from an evil skull lord. What’s a Sunday afternoon without pretending to defeat pretend evil?
Ah, you didn’t think I had been doing nothing all this time, right? Of course not. Here’s a few things that have been occupying my free time: Chasing the Baby — She finally figured out crawling a couple of weeks ago. People had told me that one day she’d just get it and then she’d be… Continue reading Five Fun Things For Friday — Father’s Day Edition
Saturday, June 7th at The Game Keep in Hermitage, TN. About 30 players, both new and experienced, came out to learn the new 4th Ed. rules and play a short game in Wizard of the Coast’s Worldwide Game Day. This is back-post of my photos from that event. I was at Table 1, if that’s… Continue reading 2008 Worldwide D&D Game Day
