60 Minutes on Dungeons & Dragons (1985)

An interesting time-capsule of the mid 80's witch hunt of Dungeons & Dragons. Another example of people looking for scape-goats to blame societal problems on. Includes Gygax interview.

Very interesting trip back in time.

I like to blame all societal problems on taxes. I wish someone had started an IRS witch hunt instead of TSR. :wink:
