Resurgence of D&D

Not only are us old fans experiencing a reignited love for the game we played in the 70's and 80's, but new generations are discovering just how great this game is. And it is resonating in very interesting ways, perhaps people tired of staring at screens are wanting to socialize in person. It seems everywhere you look these days D&D is being mentioned as part of the fabric of popular culture.

Dungeons and Dragons featured in an article in the New Yorker? And not in a snarky ironic way, but a sincerely complimentary piece.

"Dungeons & Dragons nights have spread into classrooms and game stores across the country. Forty dollars in Portland, Oregon, gets you into Orcs! Orcs! Orcs!, a “Tavern-inspired” pop-up restaurant with D. & D. games and artisanal delicacies."
You can see the full article here, its not a bad read:
