Mega Millions is at $640 Million - I Wonder How Much D&D Would Cost? ;)

Mega Millions is causing Lotto Fever here in the states now that the prize has hit $640 Million.

I was just wondering how much it would cost to buy Dungeons & Dragons from WotC / Hasbro.

Hey, a dollar and a dream, ya never know ;)


  1. I bought a ticket and I was thinking the same thing.

  2. I like the thinking, and I'd imagine you'd have some change out of your half billion.

    But even if it's not you, what are the odds on a big winner having at least a soft spot for the game based on the odd session or two in their youth? Pretty good I'd say. Maybe that's the angle, us getting together a petition?

  3. I'd go to culinary school. Then Tim can quit his job and play golf all ding dong day long, if he wanted.

  4. When I bought my ticket I wasn't thinking about buying D&D, but now that you mention it....

  5. 641 million. sorry your just a few bucks short :-(

  6. What would be the first thing you did if you did buy it?

  7. I think it would depend on how much they've valued the brand. My guess would be $50m-$100m based on potential future earnings from video game/TV/movie deals. If you strip out all that, then D&D as it stands is probably only worth a single dollar at best.

    The next question is, if you did buy it, what would you do with it?

  8. I thought the same thing. I've got decades of experience in publishing and prone to waste money on new business ventures...
