So, for years I've been a fan of Descent... a board game reminiscent of Warhammer Quest, and Hero Quest from the days of yore. As of this month, D&D has thrown their hat into the ring with the release of Castle Ravenloft, and in the future they will be releasing the Wrath of Ashardalon.
For those of us who don't have a regular gaming group anymore, and don't really have the time to dedicate weekly to the hobby, but who still have the urge to throw dice, and enjoy some dungeon crawlin', this could be just what the doctor ordered.
I am planning on picking up a copy of CR in a couple of weeks, but wanted to get some feedback from the community. Has anyone out there picked the game up? Is there any real interest? Personally, I kind of love the idea of a collaborative way to play out a fantasy dungeon using D&D rules (even if it is D&D-lite) without a DM. I'd love to hear people's thoughts... if you own the game, what do you think (production value, playability, fun, etc)? If you're interested but don't own, what have you heard? If you're not interested, and you're sure that the game is going to suck, why?
This is definitely a new direction for D&D to go, and I'm really excited to see how it works out.
