Day 17: The Night Tom Hanks was EVIL!

First time you heard that D&D was somehow, evil?

One night I saw Tom Hanks in 'Mazes and Monsters', it may have even been the original airing.

Even as a kid I thought the movie was about a guy who was seriously messed up, not that the game he was playing was in any way 'evil'.

I also have an Uncle who is a fundamentalist Catholic, and I remember that my father would ask me to take down my D&D poster whenever him and his family would come visit. The one time I forgot to take down the poster, my cousin wasn't allowed to sleep in my room, even after I'd taken the poster down.

I was lucky in that my parents never took this sort of nonsense seriously.
