Storyline

One late night in a college dorm, four socially inept geeks immerse themselves in a fantasy world of their own creation. As their characters journey through forbidden kingdoms, ancient ruins, and the forsaken wilderness, the players attempt to solve a mysterious puzzle that could ultimately mean the difference between getting a life and death. Who is The Shadow? Where is The Princess hidden? Will any of them ever find a date? And how long do they have before their annoyed neighbors call the cops? Written by Mark Thomason

Goofs

After the adventurers killed the Shadow the Gamemaster states that Nimble finds a secret trapdoor. When the characters open the door it is a door in the wall, not a trapdoor. It has to be said, anyway, that "find secret trapdoors" is a D&D gaming term including any kind of secret passageways, be it on the floor, wall or even roof. See more »

Quotes

Ambrose: Hey, isn't Mark supposed to be here?
The Gamemaster: Uh yeah. He's over there.

Better than KODT on film!
29 July 2003 | by (Kansas City, Missouri) – See all my reviews

"The Gamers" is the solution that the universe found for the atrocity that was the D&D movie. It chronicles both the real-world and fantasy-world exploits of some college guys as they try to rescue the princess while avoiding being sent packing by the campus police. The "natural 20" scene is not to be missed, and even non-gamers will likely get a laugh from it. The DvD has a commentary track my Monte Cook, and you can even get subtitles in Latin. If you check your local gaming conventions, you may even get to see a free screening of the film. It's well worth the trip.
