    Six Glitches That Accidentally Invented Modern Gaming

    We can’t claim credit for this. We’ve re-posted something that was originally posted by BoomAech on Imgur! Half of the art you enjoy every day is probably due to some happy accident. For instance, most of the tension in Jaws can be credited to the fact that the fake shark they were using was a mechanical nightmare and too ridiculous to show on screen. You wouldn’t think video games would be subject to this, however — a mistake in the code of a game would most likely just melt your Xbox (again) rather than invent some fun new game mechanic. Yet, some of the most iconic features of games can…

    DnD at Winter GAX by Chris Hawes

    D&D will be on once again at Winter GAX. The setup will be the same as last time, we will run games as people want to.

    The creator of this game informed me that it’s anywhere from 3 – 6 people needed to play and that he will demo as long as there is enough interest in it, no specific start or stop times.  This will be getting Demoed at Summer Gax this year.  And now a bit about the game from the creator. 3 6 9 Role Playing System 3 6 9 employs fast paced dungeon crawling adventure with challenging social role playing systems and a comprehensive item creation component that blend together to create a self contained narrative system.   The 3 6 9 role playing system was born out of a desire to…

    Original post here. I will be running another tabletop RPG game at GAX. This time I am going to be running a D&D 5e game. Like last time, I’ll probably run short 1 – 2 hour games to allow for as many people to play as possible. Each game will have 5 spots for players. These are going to be more open though as I’m not running any pre-made modules. If you don’t have the PHB you can either head on down to Game On and see if they have any copies available for purchase, or you can download the PDF of the D&D 5e Basic Rules provided by Wizards…

    Vin Diesel on Dungeons and Dragons

    We’ve all seen Vin Diesel in all kinds of movies, from racing cars to futuristic action flicks. But what most people don’t know is that Vin Diesel attributes a lot of his own growth to playing Dungeons and Dragons. He’s been an avid player for over 25 years, and was invited to write the foreword to the commemorative book 30 Years of Adventure: A Celebration of Dungeons & Dragons. Watch the two clips below to see how passionate he is about one of the games that we all love. I don’t think I can put it into better words than her does.
