English books of a French Canadian

Can someone help Sam? Did he simply dream it all?

There was a series of novels I read at summer camp after fifth grade. The setting was a group of friends sitting around and playing a D&D-type game, but with a hexagonal gameboard. But very quickly it cuts to the world of the game and follows the characters as they go to war. Not sure whether they were in the dwarf-elf-human-etc character-class system of pseudo-D&D, but I imagine they were. Kind of, also, like Dragonlance? Anyway, their fates are determined by the humans who are "playing" them.

And then the twist is, it turns out some higher-level world is "playing" the humans! Which is worthy of William Sleator?

Anyway, I've asked some people, but none of them could help me. Maybe because I borrowed the books from a French Canadian? But they were in English!

Any idea???

I forgot the best part! The French Canadian's name was "Moose" Finkelstein!

The title of this post reminded me of one of the two Doonesbury paperbacks we had in the house growing up: JUST A FRENCH MAJOR FROM THE BRONX. (The other one was DARE TO BE GREAT, MS. CAUCUS.) (Good titles!)
