Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.

How are the d+d board games? I’ve always been curious, but they’re so expensive.
They are really good! I dont own the Drizzt one because the characters in that one are way more powerful than the first two games and so not really compatible. But you can play characters from any of the games together, mix in enemies and such. Very modular, very customizable.
