[Top 10] Best Dungeons & Dragons Streamers Right Now (2022)

YouTube allows gamers to expand beyond the Role-Playing Game (RPG) tables in their basements and peer into the circles of other gamers playing games. Or, if you are new to Dungeons & Dragons (5e) and wish to learn how to play and/or create your own world as a Dungeon Master (DM), there are many channels you can choose. That is the issue—there are so many channels!

However, I have conducted research, fell into several D&D rabbit holes—you’ve been warned, and found 10 of the best (in my humble opinion) D&D Streamers. If you want to look further than books, dice, figures, and maps (which are all great), here are the top 10 Streamers for you!

10. Blaine Simple

Blaine Simple is the brainchild behind the Youtube channel with the same name. Blaine states that “this is a channel where I’ll be taking my passions and squishing them into weird videos with meme-y art!” Blaine takes anime with other art forms and combines them with Dungeons & Dragons. This is a terrific place for fans who love both anime and D&D!  Since the channel was launched on March 6, 2019, there are currently 176K subscribers and over 22 million views!

9. Critical Role

Critical Role is a streaming staple for D&D enthusiasts! This channel aired its first show on June 21, 2019. Matthew Mercer is the brainchild behind Critical Role, and the players are also voice actors. Other actors in the show include Marisha Ray (his spouse), Ashley Johnson, and Travis Willingham. Celebrities who have guest starred on Critical Role include Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton. 

The PCs and the GM are animated, enthusiastic, and fun! I found myself laughing along with the group and I wanted to play with them. The program has also been nominated and won accolades such as the Streamy, Webby, and Shorty awards.
