How to Play Dungeons & Dragons (DnD) Online

t’s hard to deny it’s been a strange year, and most of our D&D adventures have been taken from the warm, lively and tactile table surrounded by friends, to the cold, buggy and digital hands of video calls. Now don’t get us wrong, there are some really great ways to play D&D online! Virtual table tops, real time animated maps and things like D&D beyond all make for an amazing experience.

The Ultimate DND Dice Guide

Whether you have known about it since its inception in 1974 or have recently learnt about it, Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) is becoming more popular than ever with an estimated 13.7 million players.

Arguably the most important object used during the game is a 7 piece set of dice. Whenever a player chooses to make actions that do not have an obvious answer, a roll of the dice helps indicate what will happen in the game.
