    D&D as a spectator sport?

    Imagine this crowd gathered around a table of people playing D&D instead of a football field:



    That is how many people are watching Critical Role every week. Crazy!

    It doesn't matter if you are a into table top RPG's or not, most people enjoy a good story. If the D&D game has an engaging story and/or an engaging group of people playing people will be willing to watch.

    Well, about all of the critical role players are actors with acting experience, I do think that helps. And offcorse, the storyline.

    Dice, Camera, Action! is another fun D&D game DMed by Chris Perkins that airs on Twitch weekly - Tuesdays 4-6 pm PDT (GMT -7) I think. I guess you would consider the players internet personalities, but they are not actors as far as I know. It's pretty entertaining, and I have actually adopted the 2-hour format for my own games. It really forces you to keep the action coming - you can't waste 20 minutes discussing the watch order!

    YouTube link here for the latest session. You can pretty much jump in anywhere.

    Well, D&D as a spectator sport is certainly better than Poker, which is televised inexplicably often these days.

    Matt Mercer is also the voice actor for overwatch with 30 million registered players. I'm sure he brings in a ton
