Dungeons & Dragons: Legend of Drizzt Board Game

After how much fun we had with tabletop role playing games, my husband and I bought The Legend of Drizzt board game. This is the second game from the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System Board Games that I've had the chance to play, and I have to say it's pretty fun. The first game I had an opportunity of playing was The Wrath of Ashardalon.

This board game centers around popular character Drizzt Do'Urden from the Forgotten Realm campaign setting. My husband knows all about the lore of this character, and from what I understand, some of the adventure scenarios reflect actual story plots for the Drizzt character. But if you're like me, and you know nothing about Drizzt Do'Urden, you'll still have a great time playing this game.

Just like the previous D&D Adventure System Board Games it uses a modified version of the 4th edition rules. It's a great way to introduce your friends to some cooperative gaming in a table-top role play setting. What's new about Legend of Drizzt compared to the previous D&D board games, is the competitive scenarios.

You can have a game where players are divided into teams, and each team is trying to beat the other to the overall goal. We haven't had a chance to play with those rules yet, but I would love to. There's also a scenario that we did have a chance to play through, where all the characters are working together, until one player is revealed to be the villain in disguise! That was a pretty intense game, because no one (not even the villain himself), knows who the trader is until they've been revealed.

Overall, it's a fun time! I think Wrath of Ashardalon is a bit more challenging, and the Legend of Drizzt's characters are a lot more powerful. I'd be interested to get a chance to switch some characters around since the game content can be combined with the other D&D board games. You can play this game with 1-5 players, and the adventures can take a hour or a few hours depending on the scenario you're playing.

It's a go-to game if you're itching for a dungeon crawl, and you don't have a DM to run a game for you. The figures and map tiles can even be used for your home campaigns! It's the game that just keeps on giving!
