D&D in the Top 3 Greatest Toys

By on 19 December 2010

Back in October, you may recall that we asked you to vote for Dungeons & Dragons in Channel 4’s Top 100 Greatest Toys programme. The program was aired this evening and your votes have counted as D&D was only beaten by Monopoly and Lego.

Thanks – even if one of the “talking heads” did seem to imply that the only reason it was so high up the list was because some sort of internet campaign was being run to get it votes… 😉

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.

    I was pleased to see D&D placed so high, but I noted the snide little comment as well.
    I remember seeing the archive clip of the game when I was a kid – if I recall it was show on a Sunday afternoon religious programme.
