There are some deeply ingrained stereotypes about Dungeons & Dragons, and those stereotypes usually begin and end with people called D&D fans nerds. But, the reality of the D&D universe is much more complex. Rather than being an escape from reality, D&D is actually a way to enhance some important real life skills. It's a chance to learn problem solving, visualization, interaction, organization, people management, and so on. Plus, there are some very famous non-nerds who have declared an affinity for D&D, so perhaps it is best to stop criticizing and join in if you want to be a successful at the game of life! Watch the episode and tell us what you think!
