    In the event you are unfamiliar with the game…
    D&D was originally a game mostly played using imagination. A referee would place obastacles on a map and the players would see if their characters could overcome them. The game had rulebooks without a board.
    Consult wikipedia for a more detailed description. See also Role Playing Game.

    Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) was the first published Role-Playing game; depending on exactly how you count them, there have been 4-9 games under this name (or, in a couple cases, “Advanced D & D”, and “Advanced Dungeons and Dragons”). It is also a brand that has been applied to many things, including movies, video games, a Cartoon series, at least one board game, a wargame, a music CD, and likely many other things.

    A Role-Playing game is most typically one in which each person (or all save one) play a role (“player character”), much like impromptu acting. When there is (such as in D&D) a person who isn’t playing a role, they are in charge of the rest of the world that the player characters reside in, including all creatures that aren’t player characters.

    D&D in particular has always had heavy wargaming influence (having grown, in no small part, out of the wargame Chainmail); so in actual play, it can be treated from a nearly pure tactical wargame with few role-playing elements through a nearly pure role-playing game with few wargaming elements. The later is rarer.

    The most common premise of D&D is that each player character is a person in a quasi-European pseudo-medieval fantasy world, where magic and fantastic creatures are commonplace. Each Player Character is typically a somewhat exceptional person (note that “person” includes a number of species other than human), who has the potential to become an extremely exceptional person, usually by defeating large numbers of monsters and/or villains, and keeping most of the goods that said villains or monsters may have had. The former allows the Player Characters to improve in their abilities (fight better, become more skillful, and/or increase in their magical powers); the later can be converted into (or in some cases, can be) useful items, materials, or land.

    Sources (I’m afraid that this list is small; most of my references on this subject are books):
    1) Wikipedia page listing some definitions.
    2) An official history of the original publisher(s) of D&D
    3) A history of D&D
    4) The current publisher’s main page on D&D
    5) A major fan site for D&D (as well as related games)
