World-Wide D&D Game Day Saturday 48

It's that time of year again: The World-wide Dungeons and Dragons Game Day is this Saturday, November the 5th. Gaming stores across the globe are ramping up for events showcasing the game that in many ways helped the gaming industry get off the ground. 1up has some background on the event. From the article: "D&D mechanics have indeed been a core component of many electronic games, even those that do not share the same aesthetics or mythology. Japanese RPGs, including long-running series Dragon Quest, were heavily influenced by early D&D. The influence is much more obvious in many North American RPGs, some of which actually take up and expand on the D&D license, like Neverwinter Nights and DragonShard."
