I'll be watching Stranger Things on this Gygax Day...

Maybe I'm not a great gamer, but I'm afraid I didn't even realize that today was Gary Gygax Day, on which we honor the birthday of one of the original Dungeon Masters, until I saw others posting about it.

While I don't think I'll get a chance to actually do any roleplaying today (other than a bit of play-by-post), I guess I will be observing it in a way if I'm able to get in an episode of my newest small-screen obsession before hitting the hay tonight.  If you haven't had a chance to watch it yet, I highly recommend Stranger Things on Netflix.  Its D&D influence and old school aesthetic are pretty awesome.

(I still have a few episodes to go, so please don't spoil anything...!)  (EDIT:  I've now finished it.  Great series!)


  1. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about this show.

    1. From what I've seen, the hype is to be believed. The nature of the genre means that there could be some twist at the end that just makes me shake my head, but so far it's been on point all around - story, visuals (+ music), and acting!

    2. Okay, now that I've finished it, I can confirm that it's excellent all the way through.
