Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game initially developed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson (Wikipedia) and is published by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro. The game follows a ruleset known as the “d20” ruleset, meaning that most things are solved with a special set of dice, the most important one being the twenty-sided die, or, the “d20”. Players put numbers into their skills and abilities, and add those numbers to their rolls. Depending on the difficulty of the task and how high they roll, the player can either succeed or fail in what they’re trying to do. This applies in and out of combat. Depending on the edition you play, these situations, as well as combat, can either be short and fluid, or long and complex, especially when taking the difficulty into account. Editions up to 3.5 are very complex, whereas editions 4 and 5 have changed things to make it them simpler for newer players to grasp while also making sure older players are satisfied. 4th edition failed in that last department, and it is considered to be the worst edition of Dungeons and Dragons thus far. For newer players and players who aren’t too interested in the roleplaying aspect of the game, 4th edition is absolutely perfect, as it focuses on combat and making your character ridiculously overpowered. For other players, 3.5 and 5 are greatly prefered. Both tend to balance roleplaying and combat nicely, and thus, for most players, they’re favored.
