Simulated danger became real in the during of a role-playing game in a McKoon Avenue home Monday night.
In the midst of a round of Dungeons and Dragons, a trio of men entered through an unsecured side door and robbed four victims.
The three men and a woman, all in the their early 20s, told officers of the Niagara Falls Police Department one of the men brandished what appeared to be a shotgun, while another held a "machete-style knife."
Pressing the firearm against one of the player's necks, the armed robbers demanded the victims hand over their cellphones and wallets.
The robber also took a Sony Playstation 4, several swords, a pair of car keys and a vehicle belonging to one of the victim's.
Before leaving, the men told the female victim, "We have your ID's, we know where you live — call the police and we will kill you," a police incident report said.
