In this charming, tongue-in-cheek fantasy boardgame (often considered a boardgame version of "classic" Dungeons & Dragons), two to eight players take the role of a fighter, elf, cleric, or magician, then wander around the board collecting arms, treasure, and resolving encounters (which can be good or bad). The game ends when a certain number of Imperial Treasures has been found (depending on how many players are playing) at which point the player with the most treasures wins. Gameplay is competitive (half the fun is throwing nasty encounters on the other players).Estimated Playing Time:
1 to 2 hours (use of VOIP is highly recommended for online games) Complexity Level:
