Elves and gnomes and big swords and fireballs. Weird old women hiding in forests, waiting to feast on your brains (or offer you a very good deal on a definitely not cursed gemstone). Dungeons! DRAGONS! Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition is the big man on campus, but extremely easy for new players. Pick a race and a class, get a bundle of awesome powers and go save the kingdom from undead trolls or mad wizards.
D&D benefits from having been around for an extremely long time. Everyone has heard of it, and most people have a basic idea about how it works. There’s a sort of 50-50 balance of combat/action and storytelling in your average game of D&D, making it a good choice if you can’t decide and want a well-rounded experience.
GOOD FOR… anyone who hasn’t played a tabletop game, people looking for a fantasy experience filled with magic and adventure, kids, players who want less rules and more play. You can’t really go wrong here. Something for everyone!
