"Guess what happened during my walk". Said Grandpa

"I saw gods in a ghetto"! He continued with a smile.

"What?" I said.

"Well, not really. But can you guess what I did?", Grandpa asked.

"NO" I surrendered.

"Here is a clue", he said. "American Dragons"

What did he do? What is this clue about?

    $\begingroup$ Are we supposed to make anything of the fact that most of the conversation is in the blockquote but the first line is not, or of the oddities of punctuation and capitalization? Or are those all typos? $\endgroup$ – msh210 Nov 18 '19 at 13:29

    $\begingroup$ What does "no-computers" mean in this context? It doesn't appear to be a calculation type problem. $\endgroup$ – SteveV Nov 18 '19 at 17:57

    $\begingroup$ The clue "American Dragons" is an anagram of "Consider Anagram". $\endgroup$ – kevin omar Nov 19 '19 at 15:55

I'm going to say Grandpa was:

eating hot dogs


"I saw gods in a ghetto" is an anagram of "I was eating hot dogs".

And the clue "American Dragons" is an anagram of "Consider Anagram" (from kevin omar in comments).

    $\begingroup$ Well done - I've been trying to work this one out all day after spotting the anagram clue! "I showed Sting a goat" was my favourite... $\endgroup$ – Stiv Nov 19 '19 at 19:38

He was playing Dungeons and Dragons?... Because there are Deities you can 'see' or encounter in the game. 'Ghetto' to Dungeons as Dungeons are similar to ghettos in that they are impoverished places with much hardship endured. 'Well not really' he did not literally see a god. 'American' refers to the nationality of Dungeons and Dragons' creator and 'Dragons' refers to the name of the Game directly.
