2004 - RPGR-A00001 An Overview of the History and Potential Therapeutic Value of Role-playing Gaming
by Hawke Robinson published Sep 30, 2004 last modified Jun 07, 2020 12:20 PM — filed under: , ,
Role-playing gaming (RPGing) has its roots as far back as ancient history with the development of war-gaming. War-gaming is the simulation of combat strategies and tactics represented in reduced scale with various rules, often with some sort of randomizing agent such as dice or cards to add an element of “realistic” unpredictability. As long as there has been organized warfare, there appears to have been some form of war-gaming in every culture throughout history. Chess and the Chinese game Go both are very much based on war-gaming, but considered lacking by some because of the lack of unpredictability offered by “true” war-gaming using some degree of randomization.

2005 (March) - Working Hard at Play - Kestrel

Many educators acknowledge the learning potential of out-of-school literacies. Here, I'd like to discuss the merits of roleplaying games (RPGs). The genre is very broad with games such as Star Wars, Call of Cthulhu, Lord of the Rings, and Stargate SG-1 produced by a variety of companies. The oldest formal roleplaying game is Dungeons & Dragons® which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, in 2004. This is the best selling game of its type. Currently, there are over 4 million players worldwide, ranging in age from preteens to senior citizens. These are the players of the paper-based, book product, not the computer game variants. I'll draw my specific examples from the newest edition of the game (version 3.5 published in 2003), but the general points are applicable to any RPG.
