  • Best official D&D board game

    There have been a number of D&D board games over the years, some of which are still easily available. Have you guys tried them? Which ones are good? I'm thinking about buying one to use it to introduce kids or adults to D&D.

    Back in 'the day' I used this to introduce friends to the idea of D&D.

    But really these are a far cry from D&D and very much simple gateway games. The more in depth games like Ravenloft I'll have to leave to someone else to answer.

      Well I don't want to shill my own posts but if you wanna introduce people to D&D I suggest a system called "Knave" the idea is simplicity, they take out a lot of the complexity of normal TTRPG's while keeping the same general play style, https://img.fireden.net/tg/image/153...5415977929.pdf a link to the system if you wanna check it out.

        Wow, that's actually pretty awesome. I really like the simplified encumbrance system which I never liked and basically didn't use because I didn't have a suitable replacement except "common sense". I will play this. Thank you.

            Lords of Waterdeep is pretty good & I've heard the miniatures boardgames aren't too bad either

              This one isn't D&D but it does come with pre-painted minis & is dirt cheap:
