Prepare to roll for initiative on a fascinating exploration of the world’s most popular tabletop role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons, and its surprising impact on individuals and communities during Clark County Historical Museum’s History on Tap. “Roll 20: D&D and the Power of Community Storytelling,” presented by April Buzby, will delve into the unexpected benefits of D&D, showcasing how this imaginative game fosters creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and social connection. The presentation will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at the Kiggins Theatre.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.
Since its introduction 50 years ago, Dungeons & Dragons has grown from a niche hobby into a global phenomenon. Join Buzby as they look beyond fantastical creatures and thrilling battles to reveal the game’s deeper significance as a powerful form of community storytelling, one that unlocks creativity, builds meaningful connections, and shapes us into better versions of ourselves.
