The latest installment of the PBS weekly web series Idea Channel features a rundown of Dungeons and Dragons and why it’s awesome. Besides giving a thorough and basic explanation of the game (I will probably refer newbies to it) and calling out Big Bang Theory, the host discusses why playing D&D is such a positive experience. It can expand your imagination and problem-solving skills sure, but it also strengthens our ability to interact with others.
Rather than being an escape from reality, D&D is actually a way to enhance some important real life skillz! It’s a chance to learn problem solving, visualization, interaction, organization, people management… the list could go on and on.
I’ll roll to that.
Watch the video after the break.
