Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy roleplaying game published by Wizards of the Coast. The original Dungeons & Dragons, designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, was first published in 1974 by Gygax's company Tactical Studies Rules (TSR). The game system has also been converted into several dozen best-selling Personal Computer (PC) games, including the Neverwinter Nights series, Icewind Dale, and the Baldur's Gate series.
Dungeons & Dragons has come under attack from the religious right for ostensibly promoting Satanism and witchcraft. The controversy inspired a Chick tract entitled Dark Dungeons. Patricia Pulling also led a crusade to fight D&D with her one-person activist group called "Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons" (BADD).
