Description

A cooperative game of adventure for 1–5 players set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. A heavy shadow falls across the land, cast by a dark spire that belches smoke and oozes fiery lava. A cave mouth leads to a maze of tunnels and chambers, and deep within this monster-infested labyrinth lurks the most terrifying creature of all: a red dragon! Designed for 1–5 players, this boardgame features multiple scenarios, challenging quests, and cooperative game play.

Customer Reviews

Great for small groups

Reviewed by on

This boardgame is a great alternative to D&D if you only have a small group of friends interested in the genre. We are usually only 3 or 4 people, but have managed to clear most of the adventures without too many issues.

The rules are easy to grasp and the enemies all feel challenging, yet fair. The classes are fun to play with, each having a unique enough playstyle to cater to just about any preference. All-in-all it's well worth its money for the amount of play time you'll get out of it.

Awesome game

If you do not have the time and space to go full into D&D this is a great alternative. Plenty of games/mission. Figues are good quality and has nice detail.

Easy to learn and every game is different.

The Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game Review

Reviewed by on

The Wrath of Ashardalon takes 1-5 players on a Co-Op dungeon crawler within the fiery chasms of Firestorm Peak. You will grapple with goblins, oppose orcs, clobber a few kobolds, curse at cultists and blibber at some bizarre aberrations. You will encounter legions of devils, enraged fire drakes and steadfast Duergar guards and, eventually, you will face-off against the red dragon Ashardalon.

In the same vein as Castle Ravenloft and Legend of Drizzt, Ashardalon ups the gameplay by introducing chamber cards and campaign play, making it the best in the series thus far. As always the minis are fantastic and the rules and gameplay easy to learn and fun to play. Full review here: http://lifeofuz.blogspot.co.za/2018/03/dungeons-and-dragons-wrath-of.html

Tough but Fun

Reviewed by on

If you ever felt the urge to do a dungeon run with a group of friends then this is the game for you. It can be unforgiving until you learn the ropes, but its a great co-operative game with very nice components, decent rules and plenty of scenarios to try out.

While it bears the Dungeons and Dragons name, don't expect this to teach you anything much about the role playing game, What it is, however, is a solid, atmospheric adventure board game where you and your friends will alternatively laugh and curse your luck as everything goes horribly wrong so quickly.
