Things I've Learned About My Coworkers Playing D&D | Rollacrit

Things I've Learned About My Coworkers Playing D&D

A while ago, I wrote about how playing D&D for the first time taught me some things about myself that I didn’t realize before. But what I didn’t mention was that I didn’t just grow independently; I also learned something about the people I was playing with — who just happened to be my coworkers. 
Understanding Your D&D Character | Rollacrit

Understanding Your D&D Character

There’s a lot of prep work that goes into creating a new D&D character, but when it comes time to actually playing as the character, you may still find yourself struggling a bit to understand who your character is, and how they should respond to certain things. Sure, you have their overall nature documented (and it should always be maximum chaotic for funsies — just kidding), but there are some smaller nuances that you need to consider to truly understand your character.

Visual Alternative for Games With Intimidating Manuals

Some board games are a little much — especially when your only frame of reference is playing Monopoly or Clue. And even though we love extensive manuals, they’re not for everyone. Consider these alternatives for your friends who are more casual gamers.

Why It's Time to Start Using a Clock in Your Dungeons and Dragons Game

Dungeons and Dragons is a great game—there's no denying that. A set of systems nearly as old as the hobby, it's been refined over the years into a tight and exciting way to experience a fantasy world. That doesn't mean, though, that you can't teach it a few new tricks.

The Rules of Rolling | Rollacrit

The Rules of Rolling

If you’re playing a tabletop game, chances are you’ll need to roll dice at some point. Like a sorcerer and their spellbook, or a ship pilot and their trusty blaster, dice are an integral part of the gamer’s tool set. As such an essential part of the hobby, there are a lot of rules that come with rolling dice that you might not be aware of, so let’s talk about the dos and don’ts of using your dice at the table.
New Characters Deserve New Dice | Rollacrit

New Characters Deserve New Dice

Starting a new campaign soon? You’ve got your character planned out, all your spells and weapons ready, but there’s still one thing missing: a new set of dice. Don't get us wrong, we do sell dice, but we're not saying you need new dice from a selfish perspective. A new set of dice can do wonders for your experience.
Things I've Learned About Myself Playing D&D | Rollacrit

Things I've Learned About Myself Playing D&D

2022 was the year of D&D for me. I went from never having played a round to participating in about six different campaigns. (Yeah, that was quite a time commitment.) But during those games, while pretending I was other people, I learned a lot about myself as a person.
