The D&D Game of Your Dreams Happened on THE BIG BANG THEORY

The D&D Game of Your Dreams Happened on THE BIG BANG THEORY

As you probably know by now, we’re in the middle of a Dungeons & Dragons renaissance. Thanks to actual play livestreams, compelling shows like Stranger Things, and celebrities like Stephen Colbert, Deborah Ann Woll, and Joe Manganiello who are unafraid to show their love of the game, D&D is popping up in pop culture now more than ever.

So it shouldn’t be a surprise to see D&D played on one of TV’s biggest sitcoms—but we think you’re going to be surprised by this anyway! On a recent episode of The Big Bang Theory‘s final season, the lucky cast joined in rolling the dice with a group of players that look like something out of that dream you had the other night. In the episode, Dungeon Master Wil Wheaton led a game with players William Shatner, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Joe Manganiello, and upcoming Relics and Rarities guest star Kevin Smith.

Joe, Critical Role guest star and friend of Geek & Sundry, shared on Twitter that the dice he rolled on The Big Theory once belonged to the game’s creator, Gary Gygax, bringing the past and thrilling present of D&D together on one of TV’s biggest shows.

You can watch the full episode online now! Naturally, there’s not a lot of time spent actually playing D&D with that incredible dream team, but we think “D&D Vortex” rolled pretty high on its performance check.
