Learn to Play D & D at the Library

Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy game powered by imagination that has been around for 42 years, despite controversy and labeling. The possibilities are endless and each game changes depending on the ‘dungeon master,’ who is the storyteller for the game.  Teens who like to play, or want to try it out for the first time, can head to the Southern Oaks Library, 6900 S. Walker, Saturday, March 12, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The popularity of D & D over the past four decades hasn’t declined. It’s a creative and inexpensive form of entertainment because all you need to play is a rule book, and the library has many rule books available for check out,“ said John Hilbert, Southern Oaks librarian. “Games can be played over long spans of time and players can get as involved in creating characters as they want to,” he concluded.

Over 30 million followers enjoy D & D and book and accessory sales have netted more than $1 billion.

Dungeons and Dragons Game Day at the Southern Oaks library is led by volunteers from Soonercon and open to ages 12-21.

For more information about this and many other opportunities to game at the library, visit the online event calendar or search the catalog to find rule books and more on D & D.

I earned a BA in Professional Writing from the University of Oklahoma. I enjoy writing about all of the great things the library system has to offer. When not penning articles and press releases about valuable library services, I hang out with my two creative children. We love to find interesting free things to do around Oklahoma and visit libraries and book stores wherever we go.
