Parting Shot: Obama Vs. Romney ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Game To Determine Artist’s Vote


The Allegra LaViola Gallery in New York City plays host this week to artist Casey Jex Smith, whose exhibition will kick off Wednesday night with a performance based on role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons. With Smith as the Dungeon Master and audience members in control of the game dice, actors representing President Barack Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney will battle it out for the honor of the artist’s vote in the actual presidential election.

“Romney is a fighter. Obama is a Sorcerer,” said Smith, who’s from the swing-state of Ohio, in an email to Wired. “I will have to dumb down the rules a little so the battle is fast and furious. Romney will have a better thaco but do less damage. Obama will have worse thaco but do massive damage. It will essentially be all D20s and D6s.”

If you have any idea what any of that means, you’ll enjoy the rest of the piece written by Wired’s Ethan Gildsorf, which you can check out right here.
