Through June 3rd at The Bartell Theater in Madison, Wisconsin, Of Dice and Men is a play about a group of decidedly non-stereotypical Dungeons & Dragons players and lifelong friends.

Humor, brutal honesty and the good-natured kidding of people who know each other far too well culminate in an unforgettable evening that will make you laugh and think – and do so in a way that celebrates the power of gaming to bring people together, never once apologizing for it.

AdventureFight, which debuted this past Tuesday at JJ’s Bohemia in Chattanooga, is a live comedic roleplaying event with audience participation. The people rolling dice on-stage are actors but the game is unrehearsed. Also, audience members can volunteer to play various NPCs. Admission is $5 or free for those wearing medieval fantasy costumes.

Improvised Dungeons & Dragons shows are running in Edmonton, Atlanta, and Denver. This one has audience members rolling dice and challenging those on-stage to act their way through the adventure in-character.
