Welcome, readers! Once again, I am honored to be able to show off a few of the amazing Dungeons & Dragons releases that were made available this year. I know I may have omitted a few items, but these are the big ones that I think would make for amazing gifts this season. And I am going to start off with my favorite one, because who says you cannot have dessert first? In my eyes, it is definitely the sweetest! So, without taking up any more of your time, here we go!
Here’s the 2022 Holiday Gift Guide: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.
Well met, readers. I hope Halloween treated you all well and you are gearing up for the holiday season in the near future. I was lucky enough to get a few items to review before everyone starts buying gifts for their loved ones and here is the first of that batch. Entitled Dungeons & Dragons: Dragons & Treasures, this is a new addition to the Young Adventurer’s Guides that I have presented to you in the past, examples of that are here and here. If you have just a moment, let me give you a rundown of what you will find inside this new installment.
As almost any tabletop gamer will tell you, game changes and additions will please some and anger others. This is true of technical expansions as well. Knowing this, I took to the shops and chatted with friends regarding the newest Dungeons & Dragons source book Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes. I had already heard from a couple of buddies that impressions were polarized after the exclusive release at hobby and game shops on May 18th, with the rest of the merchants shelving it on May 29th. With that in mind, I wanted to take a more critical look at it from the eyes and mouths of other gamers, but of course I will add my own impressions to the review.
If you’ve been following HBO’s Game Of Thrones, then you know that one of the storylines in this fantasy-drama involves dragons – more precisely, baby dragons growing into maturity and becoming, you know, DRAGONS! During Season 3, it was already obvious that the young dragons would soon outgrow their surroundings and possibly become too strong for their human “mother” Daenerys Targaryen to keep tame.
HBO has just released a 30-second tease for the upcoming Season 4 called “Dany Dragons” that centers on Dany and her growing dragons. Also released today were two other character tease videos — “Tyrion Dungeon,” which is just how it sounds, and “Stark Direwolf,” which teases events involving members of the Stark clan show from the direwolf point-of-view. Watch all three character tease videos here below.
Game Of Thrones returns to HBO for the start of Season 4 on April 6, 2014.
