Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It

Speaker  David M. Ewalt

Host  Amy Draves

Duration  01:05:58

Date recorded  29 August 2013

David Ewalt recounts the development of Dungeons & Dragons from the game’s roots on the battlefields of ancient Europe, through the hysteria that linked it to satanic rituals and teen suicides, to its apotheosis as father of the modern video-game industry. As he chronicles the surprising history of the game’s origins and examines D&D’s profound impact, Ewalt weaves laser-sharp subculture analysis with his own present-day gaming experiences to shed light on America’s most popular (and widely misunderstood) form of collaborative entertainment.
