On the gaming front, Everett bought Wrath of Ashardalon which we played for this week's Pixar gamenight! For the uninitiated, WoA is a follow up to Castle Ravenloft, a dungeon-crawl boardgame set in the D&D universe. I've really wanted to give Ravenloft a go but it was out of print for awhile and I never got around to playing it.
Anyway, lets take a closer look at Wrath of Ashardalon!
The game plays with up to 5 players, each of which takes on the role of the classic D&D archetypes (Dwarven Fighter, Rogues, etc.)
|I always end up with the dwarf:)|
|My character and her abilities.|
|our heroes are surrounded!|
|you'll need a lot of table space|
|towards the end of the night...|
|vault discovered. Scenario beaten!|
At first blush I think I like it better than Descent but I'll have to play it more to really know.
