D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge

Edit: See the comment section for the text version of these questions.

Sign up for the D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge has started. 

You can sign up either using the gadget to the right or below the list of particpating blogs. 

All blogs will be subject to approval (at least at first, to reduce spam and to work out any problems that might occur).  So if you don't see your blog on the list right after signing up, that's why. 

The 28 Day blog hop official begins on February 1, 2014.


  1. I'm sorry, but I'm striking out on this one -- how do I get the code (javascript?) to make this list appear on my blog. Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. You should be able to find it after you've signed up your blog on LinkyTools so you can share it on your blog.

    2. Nevermind...

      Click on "Get the code..." here to get the javascript for wordpress or blogger.

  2. Do you have the questions in a text version?

  4. I'm having trouble reading the questions as well. Getting old, I know. Any chance of getting those in text format so I can read them though?

  5. Ask and ye shall recieve:

    Here's the first 14 questions--

    Day 1: First person who introduced you to D&D? Which edition? Your first Character?
    Day 2: First person YOU introduced to D&D? Which edition? THEIR first character?
    Day 3: First dungeon you explored as a PC or ran as a DM.
    Day 4: First dragon you slew (or some other powerful monster).
    Day 5: First character to go from 1st level to 20th level (or highest possible level in a given edition).
    Day 6: First character death. How did you handle it?
    Day 7: First D&D Product you ever bought. Do you still have it?
    Day 8: First set of polyhedral dice you owned. Do you still use them?
    Day 9: First campaign setting (homebrew or published) you played in.
    Day 10: First gaming magazine you ever bought (Dragon, Dungeon, White Dwarf, etc.).
    Day 11: First splatbook you begged your DM to approve.
    Day 12: First store where you bought your gaming supplies. Does it still exist?
    Day 13: First miniature(s) you used for D&D.
    Day 14: Did you meet your significant other while playing D&D? Does he or she still play? (Or just post a randomly generated monster in protest of Valentine's Day).

  6. Here's the last 14 questions:
    Day 15: What was the first edition you didn't enjoy. Why?
    Day 16: Do you remember your first edition war? Did you win? ;)
    Day 17: First time you heard D&D was somehow "evil."
    Day 18: First gaming convention you ever attended.
    Day 19: First gamer who just annoyed the hell out of you.
    Day 20: First non-D&D RPG you played.
    Day 21: First time you sold some of your D&D books--for whatever reason.
    Day 22: First D&D-based novel you ever read (Dragonlance Trilogy, Realms novels, etc.)
    Day 23: First song that comes to mind that you associate with D&D. Why?
    Day 24: First movie that comes to mind that you associate with D&D. Why?
    Day 25: Longest running campaign/gaming group you've been in.
    Day 26: Do you still game with the people who introduced you to the hobby?
    Day 27: If you had to do it all over again, would you do anything different when you first started gaming?
    Day 28: What is the single most important lesson you've learned from playing Dungeons & Dragons?

  8. I just copied each day as the title of a draft for each day. Easy to write and schedule articles that don't take much effort to recall. I can't hardly believe I am actually doing this. I think it helps that I posted on FB that I play D&D when the 40th anniversary was first online. Lots of positive feedback and no negative. That's a big change from the mid to late 80s. I then posted on FB that I am doing the blog challenge and that I actually have a D&D blog. I'm nearly 50 years old and it feels like I'm breaking all sorts of taboos.

  9. Loving the initiative! Too bad 'Im too late to join in from the start and write some lengthy articles :-), but here's my contribution : http://jvtroyen.blogspot.be/2014/02/a-diversion-into-d.html

  10. Very late to this party but considering doing it for my blog. I presume that this can be done at any time?

    1. While the "official" sign up ended Feb. 7, feel free to take the questions and answer them on your own blog.

  11. Regards from Germany. Some of us are participating


  12. I am so sad I missed this... :( I would have loved to do it.
    Stopping by to say hi from this year's A to Z challenge team! I found the link to the D&D40 blog hop on one of our participating blogs. I am kind of sweeping through gaming blogs and spreading the word. If anyone has a gaming theme for blogging, consider signing up!
