067 Why We Like Dungeons and Dragons

Why we like Dungeons & Dragons. We get asked “you play rpg’s, but why do you like D&D?” We think it’s a good ‘universal’ fantasy rpg system. Most people are aware of how the game works, many have played it at one time or another, and it contains a fair amount of different rpg mechanics – combat, skills, reward system, target numbers, etc. We mention our favorite edition and what we don’t like about the king of role-playing games, Dungeons & Dragons.

The long and the short is in 2016 Asmodee North America will become the sole North American distributor for Fantasy Flight Games, Asmodee and Days of Wonder games and they are limiting retail distribution to five distributors. While that is not a big deal, they will also be restricting all retail sales to face to face transactions only. Meaning, no internet based sales! and more info can be found on icv2
