The Netflix series Stranger Things has generated renewed interest in Dungeons & Dragons, the granddaddy of all fantasy-based, role-playing games. In this program for novices and experienced players, participants will collaboratively explore ancient ruins, search for hidden treasures, and encounter menacing monsters. Students will also use their creativity and imagination to produce a variety of gaming items, including miniature figures, maps and adventures, and other aids to enhance their D&D experience.
*Specific information regarding the schedule will be shared by the instructor. Each session may be broken down into hour-long instructional segments combined with open work time, and 2-hour periods of gameplay.
