Home / News / D&D Creator Gary Gygax Passes Away



Dungeons and Dragons might be a touch nerdy for some, but like it or not, the game ascended the RPG to an entirely new level. Helping create and transcend the genre, D&D is a game that’s been played and enjoyed since the mid-60’s by super-geeks worldwide. Sadly, the creator of the pen-and-paper role playing game, Gary Gygax, passed away today.

The “Father of Role Playing” was 69 and had been struggling with strokes and a heart attack.

Rest in peace, big guy. Keep mastering those dungeons.

Thanks, Matt Burnett.
