Mini-doco on US prisoners playing Dungeons & Dragons is a fascinating watch

All across America, hardened criminals are donning the cloaks of elves and slaying dragons all in orange jumpsuits, under blazing fluorescent lights and behind bars.

We meet with two former cellmates in who played D&D together in maximum security prison and how they are now using the game to integrate back into civil society.

This is a really interesting watch and the adjoining article is a fascinating read. Who would’ve thought the most stereotypical of “nerd” activities would’ve provided such a benefit in the US correctional system.

I wonder if Chopper played? They never showed that in the movie.
