Want to Join My D&D Gang?

Ok, this has got to be the best story I have read in a long time. Apparently a court has ruled that inmates are not allowed to play Dungeons and Dragons in prison because it encourages prisoners to cooperate! Really? Apparently they never went to any sessions that I was a part of because all we did was eat snacks, talk about out-of-character stuff, and drive the DM absolutely bonkers! The few games I did DM, there was little to no cooperation between the folks. All they did was argue over why the dwarf fighter was never leading the charge into battle.  Anyway, here is a quote from the article detailing the court’s ruling.

A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit this week concluded that “cooperative games can mimic the organization of gangs and lead to the actual development thereof.”

Guess the inmates will have to go back to less menacing gangs like white supremacists and whatever else they have in there. Watch out, that gang of nerds over there is dangerous! 😀
