Ok. So either someone over at Nick reads this blog, or an enormous coincidence has just occurred. Actually it's more likely that there is just a Dungeons & Dragons nexus web/lattice of coincidence going on, you know, with the upcoming release of D&D Next and all.
Whatever the case, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just did a D&D Mazes and Monsters episode called Mazes & Mutants. The episode opens with the turtles playing an old school RPG they found called Mazes and Mutants. It looks suspiciously almost exactly like the classic D&D Basic box and the RED box of yore rolled into one.
So after a brief and very funny opening of the 4 turtles playing this old school game that looks very much like D&D Basic they decide to finish their game as a LARPing session in the sewers—just like the film, you know, the one we were discussing a month ago...Mazes & Monsters. Lol. My kids and I could not believe it.
I still cant believe it.
TMNT did D&D and Mazes & Monsters.
We're still in total shock.
I need to watch it again.
Go over to Apple TV to download it.
Eventually the 4 turtles are all dressed up in LARPing costumes battling in a real dungeon.
No more spoilers. Just go download it!
It also looks like there will be toys of them in their LARPing costumes too. Double bonus. :)
