C4’s 100 Greatest Toys – Vote D&D!

By on 25 October 2010

Channel 4 are running a programme about the 100 Greatest Toys and Dungeons & Dragons is on the list. It may not be your system of choice. You may even hate it. However, as far as the non-roleplaying world is concerned, all RPGs are “Dungeons & Dragons”. With that in mind please vote for Dungeons & Dragons here: channel4.com/programmes/100-greatest-toys/articles/100-greatest-toys-vote.

Please share this link around. It would be great to see a tabletop roleplaying game voted best toy of all time. Or at least to get a high ranking.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.

    Thanks for raising the profile of this! I should mention that I first got the heads-up from the Ennie Awards site, who were sent the link by Gail Gygax.
