Submission + - Remembering Knightmare, The Dungeons & Dragons Game Show (

TPIRman writes: In the late '80s and early '90s, British kids would crowd around the TV set to watch other kids play a thinly veiled, live-action version of Dungeons & Dragons. The show was called Knightmare, and its campy production of an immersive fantasy quest defined a moment in U.K. children's TV. In a retrospective on The Gameological Society, Hugo Myatt—who played the dungeonmaster Treguard—sheds light on the origins of the show and shares behind-the-scenes details. For instance, when the producers found a particular bunch of kids too boring, those adventurers would just "happen" to find their way into the deadly spinning-blades room.
