Back in the 1980’s when I started playing D&D and AD&D, it was common for television shows (especially the 700 Club) to run focused programs on the evils of role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons. Apparently, D&D is evil again. So that’s kind of cool. Apparently, prisoners who are role-playing are security risks. Yet another reason to stay out of jail, I guess.
A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit weighed in Wednesday on a matter of grievous import to the nation’s prisons: Dungeons & Dragons. And the Court’s ruling was bad news for naughty nerds nationwide, concluding that the innocent-seeming board game was inviting trouble.
