    In Of Dice and Men, David Ewalt recounts the development of Dungeons & Dragons from the game’s roots on the battlefields of ancient Europe, through the hysteria that linked it to satanic rituals and teen suicides, to its apotheosis as father of the modern video-game industry. As he chronicles the surprising history of the game’s origins (a history largely unknown even to hardcore players) and examines D&D’s profound impact, Ewalt weaves laser-sharp subculture analysis with his own present-day gaming experiences.

    Man there are some tough critics on this website. I loved this book. It was informative about both the history and play mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons. There is a creative aspect to the narrative where the story is cut between various D&D campaigns with the journalists journey to discover more about the business side of the board game industry as well as a biographical study of the D&D founder, Gary Gygax. I played D&D a few times as a kid; if I had a circle of friends that included the author, I would have played it much, much more.
