Since gaining popularity in the 1970s, the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons has been a part of American culture.  Journalist David Ewalt investigates why this particular game has remained popular and culturally influential.

He began playing the game when he was 10 years old.  Now he’s an award winning journalist who writes about games for Forbes magazine.  His new book is “Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It.”
