DM Table Tips Episode 1

by Mike Shea on 8 February 2010

This is the first of a series of short videos focusing on Dungeons and Draogns 4th Edition table tips. In this episode we're going to look at using black t-shirts as a fog of war, pipe cleaners for area markers, egg timers to keep your players moving, bottle rings for marking miniatures, and poker chips for action points and bonuses.

I'm hoping to do these videos from time to time if people think they're useful. Sometimes it's more useful to actually see the stuff in action than it is to read about it. Next, I'm thinking of discussing a few more DM tips from behind the screen.

Let me know what you think!
