Great Big Story traveled to London, Ontario to visit with Robert Wardhaugh, an amazing man who started his first game of Dungeons and Dragons in 1982 at the young age of 14. Wardhaugh has been the dungeon master of that exact same campaign for the past 35 years. He has built friendships with people from all over the globe and amassed an incredible collection of 20,000 figures and terrain pieces.
In 1982, when he was only 14 years old, Robert Wardhaugh sat down to play a game of Dungeons and Dragons. Thirty-five years later, that same game is still going strong.
