RPG Boredom Busters


Dave McAlister

As a large number of us head into isolation, I’ve put together a list of resources that generous individuals and publishers have released: RPG Boredom Busters.

In the spirit of their generosity, none of the following links include my affiliate code. I have also stopped adverts from appearing on this page (although the built-in links for “Family Gaming” and “D&D 5th Edition” remain as they are site-wide – if I can work out how to turn those of on this page I will).

If I have missed anything (or an offer no longer works) please let me know. I aim to update RPG Boredom Busters daily as I find more items. Likewise, if anyone has any guides to using virtual table top (VTT) systems, I’m happy to link to them for new users.
