That Time I Started Playing Dungeons & Dragons for a Blog Post...

I recently went on a deep undercover writing assignment. My goal was to infiltrate a local Dungeons & Dragons group and make them believe I could be one of them, just for one night, so that I could write about the shenanigans that are role playing games. I wanted to try something new, and my boyfriend kept going on and on about Pathfinder (which is an off shoot of Dungeons & Dragons, basically) so I figured hey, I could go for 4 hours and give it a shot, blog about it, and then move on.

Fun Tips and Ideas for Trunk or Treating!

Have you heard of Trunk or Treat? It's often an event sponsored by a church or community group as an alternative to Trick or Treating. A group of people gather, typically in a parking lot. They decorate the trunks of their vehicles, and instead of going door to door for candy and treats, the kids go trunk to trunk. As a host of a trunk you can pass out candy, prizes, have games like bobbing for apples, fishing for small toys, bean bag toss, ring toss, and so on. ...more
