"Dungeons and Dragons" plays a significant role in the series, with the kids naming real-life monsters after creatures in the game. You can join in on the fun by organizing a game of D&D at your party. Don't worry about having to start a full campaign, as there are short one-shot games suitable for all ages. Peerspace offers venues that are perfect for hosting your game, like this amazing large home with a game room basement in St. Louis. Explore your neighborhood and see what options you can find.
