How did Dungeons & Dragons become cool?

I don’t know exactly how it happened, but Dungeons & Dragons is now what the cool kids do?

When I was in grade school and all the way through high school, I played Dungeons & Dragons much to the chagrin of many of my peers. And now, somehow, actors such as Joe Manganiello (True Blood) and Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil) have become the face of role-playing and everyone seems to be into it now.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love the game, and the more people playing it, the better, but, again, how did this happen? Was there some cosmic shift I didn’t hear about?

I saw both actors tweeting about this weekend and it just set me down this read of thought again. Such an odd turn of events. I have to wonder, what do kids get picked on these days now that the feeks have truly inheriated the earth it seems.

(my hope is nothing, but I know better)
