Finding the perfect game for you and your friends can be challenging, especially if everyone in your group isn’t on the same playing level. (We’re not shaming anyone. We love our casual players!) So, how do you find a game that’s objectively approachable for everyone to play? Sure, you can spend a few hours looking at reviews and trying to see if it works. But Board Game Geek actually has an easier way to see how a new game might fare—their weighted system.
Dungeons & Dragons has always been a game of boundless imagination and inclusivity, allowing players to embody characters from all walks of life. And, as the world becomes more diverse, it's important to acknowledge and represent different identities, including LGBTQ+ characters, in our adventures. That's why in this blog, we're explore several meaningful ways to incorporate and celebrate LGBTQ+ characters in your D&D campaigns, creating a more inclusive and authentic gaming experience for all players.
Tabletop games offer immersive worlds, strategic challenges, and memorable adventures. However, most of them have complex rules you need to follow before you “hop in.” And while we LOVE board games, reading 30+ pages of instructions may seem overwhelming, especially for visual learners. Fortunately, there are alternative approaches to jumpstart your tabletop gaming experience without reading. Let’s explore some alternatives!
Do you have a pile of shiny, colorful, and unusual dice in every corner of your home? Do you find yourself buying more and more dice, even though you have enough to last you a lifetime of games? Then this blog is for you! Today, we're going to answer the age-old question: "How many dice are too many dice?"
We’re back at it again with a new blog series — D&D Diaries: My First D&D Journey. We’ve written about D&D a lot over the years, but this specific series highlights one of our writer’s experiences playing the game for the first time. It’s not meant to be a play-by-play (mainly because our writer hasn’t gotten other people in his campaigns to sign approval slips to discuss their business online) but mostly dives into the overall experience of playing D&D as a beginner. We hope you enjoy!

When it comes to playing tabletop games, we’re always looks to elevate the experience. We’ve talked about creating the right ambiance for your game night before, but today we’re taking a slightly more adult approach. That’s right. We’re talking about pairing tabletop games with alcohol.
You know how we roll here at Rollacrit. We love talking about game night food. In fact, one of our first blogs was about foods to avoid whilst playing your favorite tabletop game. But today, we’re shifting gears (mostly because we’re hungry at the moment) to talk about the best kinds of food to bring to the table when you're playing D&D. Grab your utensils, and let’s dive in!
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.
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.
