It’s such a natural collaboration, you almost have to wonder why it hasn’t happened until now! Dungeons & Dragons and Nerds candy have formed an adventuring party that we can’t wait to join.
Coming in September, you’ll be able to find the D&D-themed candy in a grocery store near you. And, there’s more to discover when you collect and download special Nerds adventures and character sheets—for free. Sweet!
Wizards of the Coast
Revealed today at D&D Live, the official partnership between Nerds and Wizards of the Coast isn’t noteworthy just because the two make a perfect pair. Your purchase will unlock special adventures made for one player and one Dungeon Master that you can download from the D&D website.
Each adventure comes with a pre-generated character sheet. Every Nerd starts at their own level 1 character and class, for a total of six whimsical characters and six family-friendly adventures. If you collect all six, you’ll unlock the seventh adventure for a full party of level 3 characters!
The seven adventures are written by game designer Kat Kruger. The story begins in the city of Harmony, which has been experiencing a strange case of “color outages.” What could be causing this strange phenomenon? And will the party be able to solve the mystery in time? These one-on-one adventures are ideal for a grown-up and child to play through their first D&D story together. All puns aside, it really is a sweet idea that we can’t wait to check out ourselves.
Nerds x Dungeons & Dragons candy will be available this fall wherever Nerds are sold.
