Default Wrath of Ashardalon (D&D Board Game)

Wrath of Ashardalon! Simplified don't mean easy ha ha

Played this with my kids today for about 3.5 hours. The Encounter cards really took a toll! Impressive game balance on the side of challenging. I really like the game system and my 8 year old grasps it fine. My 12 year old catches my mistakes I really like the fact that the game comes with 8 adventures and even a solo starter scenario. After playing the second to easiest adventure (no grim or horror chambers, no Achardalon) I'm going to say killing Ashardalon must be a daunting task indeed. Sadly *my* character had to use one of the community healing surges Board game or not this isn't easy! The "bad" stuff that happens is pretty funny though.

The 4e tie in makes it very comfy albeit quite stripped of complexity. Nothing to write down either. Everything is on cards / tokens. We play that as well so this was an easy adjustment. Cool stuff… recommended. I also have Legend of Drizzt. Haven't tried that one but its the same system.

If anyone is interested in seeing this played there is a great and entertaining series on Youtube for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwbY_p2Zb3Y
