The game is designed to be played by 1 to 5 players and is at such an introductory level that even those without prior experience can jump in. And the rules are so engaging and simplified that almost anyone of any reasonable age can enjoy it for what it has to offer.
The pretense of the game is about a dinner party being held by the Master of Ravenloft.
The object of the game is revealed as you transcend throughout the castle. So, as you maneuver through its chambers and levels more of the castle is presented to you by the use of player tiles. The tiles comprise the character cards, game boards and other areas such as coffins, status modifiers, etc.
But beware. In the Dungeons and Dragons Castle Ravenloft Board Game danger lurks in the different parts of the castle and only the strongest and bravest of heroes will survive. You will find yourself in the ultimate fight of good versus evil.
The fact that all of the play pieces are color-coordinated makes it much simpler to analyze the board at a glance. Animals are colored brown, zombies and other members of the undead are white, and the spectral undead, such as ghosts, are a translucent blue. As for the main characters, the villains are a devious and fitting dark gray while the heroes are a much lighter gray. The color contrasting also makes it easier to locate specific groups that you may need to keep an eye on and to keep track of others.
For a refreshing twist, the manufacturer included a scenario booklet along with the rules booklet. This allows you to choose the scenario that will, in essence, determine the conditions by which you can win the game. It is also designed so that many different scenarios can be played together which can stretch the game out for a considerable amount of time, if you wish.
The new Dungeons and Dragons Castle Ravenloft Board Game has been a highly anticipated addition to the D & D franchise. Many people have played it at conventions before the game was released and were so hooked on it that they simply could not wait for it’s arrival. Once you experience the thrill of the game you will soon see what all the excitement has been about.
