Do you need a board to play D&D?
No. You don’t need a board for 5e. 5e is intended to be played however you’d like. Some groups (like the ones I GM), prefer to use a battle mat and minis to represent the play space.
Can you play D&D without anything?
Dungeons and Dragons is traditionally played on a tabletop, with paper and dice. The books can get expensive, but the basics are available online for free. The average player does not actually have to purchase anything, as the DM is in charge of creating the game.
Do you need a grid to play Dungeons and Dragons?
No, you do not need to use miniatures. Miniatures and grids are not necessary for playing D&D 5e, they can be useful visual aids for combat as you can see exactly where you are relative to other characters but, outside of combat, there is little need to use them.
Can you play D&D without a DM?
In short, the Dungeon Master runs the game. You can get along without a fighter or a rogue or a cleric character, at least for a game session or two, but you can’t play a game of D&D without a DM.

How do I join D&D without friends?
Try meetup.com, and find d&d groups in your area. The video games are fine and all, but they don’t compare to sitting down with others and playing the real game. Good luck! If you’re able to interact easily online, your best bet would be to find a forum that has play-by-post D&D games.

Do you need minis for D&D?
Do I need miniatures to play D&D? No. Miniatures are an unnecessary expense as far as D&D is concerned. There are plenty of options to play D&D without miniatures including online play, theatre of the mind, or in-person battlemap play with tokens.
Does D&D use figurines?
Although not necessary or standard, D&D players often make use of different kinds of props, including figurines (for characters or monsters), dice towers, and organizational accessories. In this article, we provide some insights into D&D pieces that you can make on your own.
Can a Dungeon Master be a player?
No, a Dungeon Master cannot be a player. Any character the Dungeon Master plays while DMing is called an NPC (non-player character). NPCs are handled differently in the game and do not gain XP, level up or share rewards like PCs do. You can, however, make your NPC a party member or just let them tag along.
Why is D&D so fun?
D&D is a really fun game for those looking to create a long term immersive gaming experience. These types of games have just enough depth to enjoy for several games, and because they’re so rules light, you can just focus on the story. This makes it much easier to run as a Dungeon Master.
