    App of the Week: Knights Of Pen and Paper

    As someone who really dislikes anything “Dungeons & Dragons,” I was surprised by Knights of Pen and Paper (KoPP)’s  great storyline and fun gameplay.

    It is extremely common, especially this year with books such as “Divergent,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” for Hollywood to take novels and convert them to the big screen.  This is an interesting practice that exposes the author’s work to a larger audience and provides a...
