All Lodge wants is for his gaming group to finish their adventure. Unfortunately, they're more interested in seducing barmaids, mooning their enemies, and setting random villagers on fire. Desperate to rein in his players, Lodge injects two newbies into the distrust: a non-player character controlled by Lodge, who the power gamers immediately distrust, and the rarest gamer of all -- a girl. Can the group overcome their bickering to save the kingdom, or will the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed? A parody of fantasy films and the adventure gaming community, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising is a hilarious romp through the world of sword and sorcery -- in this case, a world of exploding peasants, giant house cats, and undead roast turkeys. Game on! Written by
When the characters meet up with Nodwick for the second time, Brother Silence pulls out several items from the chest that have item names taken from the card game "Munchkin". The scene where the Hierophant takes Brother Silence's elf-ears off is another reference to a race-change card in the "Munchkin" card game. The "Munchkin" card game can be seen played in the movie.

When Brother Silence says "Where's he gone?" in the fight with Mort Kemnon, Flynn puts his lute in the right hand (the one that was bitten off by Lodge's cat). However, it is back in his left hand for the shot in which the prop right arm falls off. See more »
I saw it for the first Time at Comicon in San Diego!
I was laughing so hard most of the time I had people glaring at me because they couldn't hear over my laughter. I literally fell out of my seat at a specific point.
I'm a Bartender and Bouncer for a living in the Real world (note my use of the term Real world, sadly it always has to come first), and whenever I tell someone I play RPG's, it's usually followed by one of two questions: 1. What, like D&D? I played that back in Junior High.
2. Really? I've been looking or a group forever! Have room for another? Very rarely do people not know what D&D and Gaming are.
That having been said almost every person who watches this movie can get something out of it. Even if you aren't a Gamer, chances are there is something in your life you "Geek Out" about that can be made fun of in a light hearted way, and that alone means you can relate to the hijinx in this flick. It's just light hearted happiness in an hour and a half.
