Staff Reviews

This is the perfect introduction to games like Dungeons and Dragons for all nerdy parents. This guide is a quick and easy intro to how to roll dice, create characters, and have the most immersive gaming experience possible. As someone who picked up D&D as a post-pandemic activity, I fully understand how overwhelming it can seem to get into the hobby without a proper introduction. There is just so much going on! And while the possibility of anything is one of the big draws to the game, it can also be kinda intimidating. So I absolutely recommend this book, and then I invite you to join us for our community Dungeons and Dragons nights here at the store!

About the Author

Gabe Hicks is a nerd in many ways. He has worked on projects for Pathfinder, Starfinder, Critical Role, The Adventure Zone, and plenty of other names. He doesn’t have a favorite tabletop RPG system, but he loves to make his own new ones even if they only get played once. He has spent time as a Creative Producer at Roll20 and occasionally freelances as a narrator for different one-shot adventures. He has no idea what the next big adventure will be, but he always says, “I’m incredibly excited to see it, and I’m even more excited for the loot."
