Subscribe to AM 1240 WJON on


ST. CLOUD – Dungeons and Dragons can be much more than just a game.

For some, it can be a way to escape from reality for a few hours to spend time with good friends.

Week after week, a group of St. Cloud area Dungeons and Dragons enthusiasts meet at Paddy’s Game Shoppe on Wednesday nights.

Jerry Christensen is the Dungeon Master for the group, he says the game is more social than people realize.

“You’re sitting down for 3-4 hours with a whole group of people and sometimes it can be hard to stay on line with the game because someone may make a crack and a joke,” Christensen says.

Join the ClubSimply put: Dungeons and Dragons is a role-playing tabletop game with each participant playing a different character in a fantasy setting. Different books, strategies and characters are involved-meaning the games can take hours to complete.

“Each person is playing a character in an adventure and you have to pick which race and what your skills are going to be and that usually takes a little bit of time,” Christensen says.

Every player can bring in a unique character or strategy. As the groups Dungeon Master, Christensen says it’s his job to organize the game and create challenges and scenarios the group will face.

“Together they work as a group to overcome all the nasty evil things that I have for them to face-mostly nasty creatures but traps and other items like that too,” Christensen says.

The club has members anywhere between the ages of 12 and 62 and meets Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. Christensen says he always comes in early at about 5:00 p.m. to answer questions or introduce anyone new to the process.

The group also enjoys the chance to share and bond over their common interest.

“A lot of interaction with new people and for someone who was shy when they were young, it’s just fun-I’m meeting a lot of new people,” Christensen says.
