Description

Players pick three of five hero tiles and everything they need to know about that character is ready to go. Think choose-your-own-adventure books, but on a board game with actions decided by 20-sided dice and you wouldn’t be far off. Thankfully the combat-based ones do offer some variety including the ability to re-roll dice or to team up with an ally. If you like to laugh and allow yourself to have fun and get creative, it's a great intro to this kind of role play gaming. If only there were a gateway game to introduce the main concepts of the game without lots of reading and math.

Now that sounds like the game could become repetitive and while that’s somewhat true, the randomness of the encounter cards does make sure that each journey is different. Players are sent out to battle creatures, collect treasures, and avoid dying thanks to simple concepts and fast-paced gameplay. It feels as though there ought to be a difference in strength between, for example, a bard and a fighter.

If your group, or even one of the players in the group, isn’t willing to take part in the storytelling and improv aspects of this game, it’s going to fall flat, very flat. Each Boss has their own dungeon board which is placed at the far end of the game board from where the heroes begin.

The currently active DM will take the top card from the card tray and place it in the holder on the top of the tray so that all of the other players can see the artwork on the card. The choice of boss monster is one you need to make at the very start of the game and will dictate which area of Neverwinter you arrive in last. I remained the dungeon master through out the game, and didn’t pass it around, just so we could get used to the game play.

It’s a credit limit that’s sits alongside your PayPal account which you can use for your online purchases. This could be an obstacle to overcome, someone they met along the way, an item they have discovered or an opportunity they may be able to take advantage of. The box, comes with a serviceable moulded plastic box insert that contains thick but poorly cut cardboard punch boards containing four single-sided map boards, a bunch of tiles used to create characters and some small round gold tokens. I expected them to fall into the trap of describing the same thing over and over (which the game doesn’t prevent you from doing in any way), but they haven’t, each time coming up with a different way to use this power. With simplified concepts and fast paced gameplay, players are set out to battle monsters, collect treasures and not die!
