the only drawback to the game is that it requires a LOT of table space. Depending on the adventure you choose, and the direction that your players choose to explore throughout the randomly generated dungeon, you can quickly create a large, unwieldy dungeon that stretches to the very edges of your table surface (and beyond). This leads to making decisions about which directions to move based not on where you want to go, but where there is room on your table to expand.
In addition to the ever growing dungeon, each player also has to deal with the many cards required to play. Every player gets a "hero card" which is a heavy stock cardboard card that measures about 6x6 and features the essential stats for their chosen hero (cleric, rogue, ranger, fighter, or mage). Each player also gets 5-6 power cards that describe their at-will, utility, and daily powers. As players defeat monsters they acquire treasure cards, and as the game progresses they may acquire any number of monster or encounter cards.Read more ›
Now, on with the review:
The components of this game are many. There are several sheets of punch tiles that comprise the game boards, character cards, status modifiers, health pips, coffins, etc. The box, itself, makes for a poor means to store all of these bits and pieces and you may consider baggies, counter trays, or other means of keeping certain tokens from intermingling between sessions to make set-up go a little more smoothly. The parts themselves are very sturdy wood-stock bits (similar to those used by Fantasy Flight Games - for those familiar with their board game offerings) and are therefore quite robust and will last you many-many years without damage or loss from being blown aside by a mild cough. There are several plastic miniatures, of excellent quality (unpainted), that are conveniently color coded by type. Undead (skeletons, zombies, etc) are white, animals are brown, spectral undead (ghosts, specters, etc) are a translucent blue, notorious villains (Strahd, werewolf, etc) are a dark grey, and the heroes are alight grey. I found this distinction to be very helpful in taking quick glances of the board and seeing how monsters were grouped versus the distribution of the PCs as well as seeing where any allies were located and obstacles between without having to examine every mini on the grid.Read more ›
Here is my experience after a couple playthroughs:
Castle Ravenloft is a huge box. It dwarfs all other equally large board games I own like Betrayal at House on the Hill and Last Night on Earth. It also comes with a ton of pieces (a good thing, considering the price of this monster) for you to punch out. As listed above in the product description, there's dozens of miniatures, an equal amount of interlocking dungeon tiles, around 200 encounter and treasure cards, a rule book, a scenario book (with about a dozen scenarios) and a 20-sided die that I'm pretty sure is out to kill.Read more ›

Great game, we combine them and play one giant dungeon. Modded the rules to fit long games, but overall amazing.Published 17 days ago by Anthony Oberski
I didn't use the game so much as i harvested the miniatures for my 5e DnD games. Pretty good price for high quality miniatures in 28mm.Published 26 days ago by Caroline
This one is okay in the D&D Board Game series. I still think Wrath of Ashardalon is the best, however.Published 1 month ago by TBS
New game each time I play- solo DND is awesome with simplified combat. Make sure you buy it here on Amazon- retail price is much higher in stores.Published 1 month ago by Conrad Hoss

All these board games by D&D are awesome and all play the same with a few new changes.
