October: Legend of Drizzt Board Game


Continuing the D&D Adventure System of boardgames (following Castle Ravenloft and Wrath of Ashardalon), players can now take on the role of the legendary drow ranger or one of his famous adventuring companions, battle fearsome foes, and win treasure and glory.
As far as these famed companions go, you'll be able to play as Catti-Brie (human archer), Regis (halfling rogue), Bruenor Battlehammer (dwarf fighter), Wulfar (human barbarian), and Athrogate (dwarf battleranger)—as well as Artemis Entreri (assassin) or Jarlaxle Baenre (drow mercenary).

For those of you familiar with past D&D Adventure System games, Legend of Drizzt plays just as similarly—except that the dungeon tiles represent the caverns filled with the monsters, traps, and tricks you'd expect in the dark corners of the Underdark. Various scenarios pit you against yochlols, mind flayers, Yvonnel Baenre the drow matron mother, Shimmergloom the shadow dragon, and Errtu the Balor—as well as Artemis and Jarlaxle (that's right, available as both members of your adventuring party or as your party's foes):
