When playing the latest popular fantasy roleplaying game, there are inevitably moments of extended downtime. Tony decides to scout ahead. Jon and Alex haven’t arrived for gaming yet. AnnaMaria hasn’t finished her side quest to retrieve the Rod of Uselessness so that the rest of the adventuring party can enter the plane of Uselessness. Whatever the case, gamers are waiting.
These gamers need filler games. And guess what, the people who make Dungeons & Dragons made one. And guess what, it involves decks of cards as individual characters fighting over treasure. And shockingly, it’s about a group of adventurers fighting over treasure. And as expected, the player who manages to stay alive the longest wins.
