Dungeons and Dragons was TSR. Magic: The Gathering was originally Richard Garfield Games (just a shell company) but always sold by Wizards of the Coast. Magic was doing great and D&D was losing popularity, probably a related phenomenon, in the mid 90s, so WotC took advantage and bought TSR. Following that, WotC started making the Pokemon card game, which was what really attracted Habro. WotC and all of its properties were acquired by Hasbro in 1999. I think. Don't have Wikipedia open right now...

Really you should accept "Wizards" as that's what most players actually refer to the company as in casual conversation. I was frustrated when it wouldn't accept Wizards and assumed you were looking for something else.

17/20. Guess I'm only mostly nerd. I was surprised that TSR wasn't the right answer to the D&D publisher question. I didn't realize they'd been absorbed. Poor Gary Gygax.

Okay. I am getting SICK of everyone saying it's bad to be a nerd. HELLO, people, Bill Gates is a nerd. Albert Einstein is a nerd, and after all you jocks are hobbling around on old sports injuries, us nerds will be sitting in plush chairs in techno-offices, playing miniature golf, and being rich. Dudes. Get your priorities straight.

Could you accept D&D for Dungeons & Dragons? I tried it and it didn't work. I also think WOTC for Wizards of the Coast is fair since it's a common abbreviation.

I've always heard/seen it abbreviated as "DND". Their website even uses it: dnd.wizards.com, and so does the main subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/DnD/. (Disclosure: I don't play it, so I can't speak for true nerds in this category. But I've always been near enough to this nerd-ness level to know the references, at least).

Nah. D&D. Or more accurately AD&D, back when I played.
+1
level 58
Jul 7, 2016
Hm. Okay. I do realize that when said aloud, "D&D" sounds like "DnD" to those who don't know, which is probably where I learned that.

yes it does, as spoken, sound like that. And it makes sense to use it in abbreviations for web addresses and such as an ampersand would mess things up.

I cannot believe such a thing exists. I know there are all sorts of "nerd" (I am loath to use the term) subcultures, but I remember the My Little Pony of my youth as a vacuous 22-minute long toy commercial for young girls with no redeeming quality whatsoever. I think I saw somewhere that the series has been rebooted, so perhaps it has been reformed with better animation, writing, etc., because I just cannot imagine that any person over the age 10, of any gender, would find the original My Little Pony even tolerable.

I'm sort of autistic. Being a brony doesn't really get you tons of chicks. I'm into ponies with little side of a kid's d*. I'm just like Kony kidnapping kids ages 5 and 6. (but not dead since 2006)

I have four granddaughters and none of them ever wanted to watch My Little Pony when they were at my house. Two of them had a crush on Wyatt from Super Why, and one of them really identified with the stoner sloth on It's a Big, Big World. (That was a little worrisome.) Our autistic granddaughter prefers watching DIY home and auto repair DVDs. I say to each his/her own.
