Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis’ best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis’ affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need.
But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors.
I FINALLY made the time to watch a few of my screeners. YES. I said a few. The thing is…having a baby…takes a lot of your time. My ‘movie’ watching has come to a slight stand still in my life!! (lol)
But on this Thursday…it was decided to get my butt in gear…instead of sleeping in after Maddox’s morning feeding. I watched. OF DICE AND MEN.
What did I think of it?! I REALLY liked it. I really did. I loved the whole story. It took me back to my Dungeons and Dragons days as a ‘younger’ Mike…now those were the days…and YES. I played Dungeons and Dragons!!
I give OF DICE AND MEN…4 out of 5 popcorns! If you’re into role playing games, Comic-con, Cosplay, D&D, comic book stores and even watched Dungeons and Dragons on Saturday morning’s. You should give this a try!!
