Descent

Oh. My. Gawd!

Fantasy Flight's version of a dungeon crawl. With a board....well, kinda. The board is kinda puzzle-like, but still awesome. The figures, while plastic, are amazingly well crafted and detailed. Gameplay is simple, but involved. Hell, I played for 9 hours (1 full dungeon and 1/3 of another) saturday night...and the only reason we stopped was cos the sun had come up.

Well worth the $80 (go to nobleknight.com and get it cheaper).

Yeah the price has been the only thing holding me back.......I have heard it really scratches the Heroquest itch for new product.

Dude, my friend Aaron bought it for the sole purpose of luring me into playing it (I'd mentioned to him like 6 months ago that I wanted to play). He picked up one of the $50 expansions (Road to Legend) last night that creates a whole new aspect of the game by introducing campaign play and new types of villains, as well as making the Overlord (DM) more evil. We're probably going to throw down with the expansion on wednesday.

Seriously though, if you can find 2 people willing to dedicate a weekend to a game (because you WILL get hooked and lose track of time), I say spring for the $80, or have a few friends chip in on it.
