- Document - It's all fun and games in the library

For as long as I JL can remember, board games, card games, guessing games, and trivia have been a part of my life. On long trips from Michigan to Kentucky my family played I-Spy, the license plate game, and card games. Monopoly, Scrabble, and Chinese checkers kept us busy on snowy Michigan days. So when a student asked me to start a game club at my school, I jumped at the chance. It was easy to get started. Some people think that Game Club is not a learning club.

There are a bunch of guides and resources out there, so we’ve tried to wrap them all up in one place for ease of access. The part about social distancing that has hit hardest for me is the lack of face-to-face play time. I jam games of Commander at least once a week at my LGS, and when I can (and we can get people together) we also have a great cube community. Sadly, a paper cube is off the cards right now, but other ways to play paper magic—like Commander, Canlander, or even Pioneer—are back on the table. All you’ll need is a little creativity and a few resources.

Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons

The Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons is a PDF that covers the core of the tabletop game. The Basic Rules runs from levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options; in addition, the rules contain 120 spells, 5 backgrounds, and character sheets.

But the best part? The Basic Rules is a free PDF. The Basic Rules document is divided into four parts. Part 1 is about creating a character, providing the rules and guidance you need to make the character you’ll play in the game. Part 2 details the rules of how to play the game, beyond the basics described in this introduction. Part 3 is all about magic. Part 4 is about tools for Dungeon Masters.
