Dungeons & Dragons Announces “Acquisitions Inc” Sourcebook

The incredible growth in popularity for Dungeons & Dragons has, in large part, been driven by streaming shows or podcasts like “Critical Role,” “The Adventure Zone,” and of course, “Acquisitions Inc.” The live shows draw thousands of attendees, with packed rooms at PAX and other events. While many of these shows have published their own materials, such as Critical Role’s Tal’dorei setting, these are all unofficial, third-party expansions.

Until now.

Wizards of the Coast announced a partnership with Penny Arcade for the release of an official “D&D: Acquisitions Incorporated” sourcebook. This is a 224-page book that gives players the option to start their own Acquisitions Inc franchise, as well as new backgrounds, character options, and more.

The book also includes an adventure designed to take characters from levels 1 through 6.

Whether or not any content in this book will be usable in the Dungeons & Dragons “Adventurers League” organized play has yet to be seen. Players may remember that an adventure module called “Cloud Giant’s Bargain,” which was given away at a 2016 live Fathom Events broadcast of the PAX D&D game, did let characters become interns for Acquisitions Inc, so there is precedent.

But for players who’ve long watched the adventures of Omin Dran, Jim Darkmagic, Viari, and all the other characters who’ve appeared in the Acquisitions Inc games, this book may enhance their games greatly.

The Hungry Gamer Previews Tessera

The more I have reviewed games the more I have found that I crave light, or medium light games on my shelf. This is not to say I prefer them to heavier games necessarily, but I find I spend a lot of time, and effort into making sure that I have rules correct, and learning how to play that sometimes I just want to sit down with my wife and play something quick and easy. Something along the weight of Ticket to Ride, or Splendor.
