Lazy Friday Video Post: “How To Play Dungeons and Dragons”

While looking for interesting RPG-related videos I stumbled upon this one:

And I don’t really know what the creators intended this to be: a parody or serious advice. If it’s a parody, it’s not funny enough. And if it was meant as serious advice, then there’s the most important part missing. IMHO the whole video doesn’t really explain what roleplaying games are about. The way the video describes it, D&D could very well be some kind of board game.

  1. After seeing the video I think this may be geared towards somebody that has an idea of what D&D may be and needs more information. But I agree that on its own it seems kind of off.
