How To Take Your Tabletop Dungeons & Dragons Game Online (

COVID struck at the height of the resurgence of the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, and while it’s not the worst aspect of a worldwide plague, nerds not being allowed to gather at the local hobby store and pretend to be elves really sucks. Luckily, though, with a little know-how, you can take the fantasy online. Computers can’t replace the face-to-face joy of D&D, but if you clear a few tech hurdles, you can get pretty close.

Losing out on playing DnD with my friends as we were forced to isolate was one of the most frustrating social losses of the pandemic. Without the closeness of your companions and the collaborative imaginative adventures you’re sharing, you’re really just playing a videogame and talking to a screen. This isn’t quite returning to normal, but these guides really make me want to reach out to my friends and try to dip our toes back into adventure again to warm up for our eventual return.

I have never been able to play in person actually since I just got into DND within the last few months. I’m thankful for these online options and I can’t wait until things hopefully get back to normal enough that I can experience an in-person game 🙂
