My guild and I decided to purchase The Legends of Drizzt board game (Wizards of the Coast) from Carta Magica to make the winter a little more fun. The reviews we managed to see online from Dice Tower and other channels on YouTube all praised the game and what truly drew us into it was that it is a 5 player coop board game using the characters from the Forgotten Realms novels. We all were familiar with classic Dungeons and Dragons so it was not hard to make our decisions and don’t expect me to trash the game. They provide you with minis that you can use for your traditional D&D campaigns as well as a decent D20. As for adventures they provide you with a simple rulebook and an adventure book but fret not my fellow gamers there are also home brew and custom scenarios you can find online to keep the steam going. What made this more interesting is that the original D&D Fantasy adventure game was only 4 players and required a DM whereas Wizards fixed this kink so that everyone can quest together. The coolest part is that the game is one of 3 released (Wrath of Ashardalon & Castle Ravenloft) which all serve as stand alone expansions meaning you switch treasure cards, heroes, tiles and adventures. In the last 6 months Wizards released Temple of Elemental Doom which too is a standalone expansion. The fact that Wizards provide advanced decks to keep the game playable longer than other similar products which you can get bored of recently. The hero selection is impressive but the lack of female heroes did not farewell with the female guild members but what can you do. I personally would recommend the game for anybody looking for a tabletop game one can play with family or friends and have a good hour and a half to kill.
My rating would be 9/10
A must buy for anyone trying to get into fantasy RPG and a great gift for someone trying to get their friends into it.
