Castle Ravenloft: the 4th Edition D&D horror board game of DOOM

When I went to buy Castle Ravenloft at the local hobbyshop, they told me they didn't take American Express. "Oh, c'mon man, this is for work!" I told him, going back to my wallet for my personal debit card. "I have to bring this game to the Internet!"

"Like in Tron?" he asked. Sometimes my job provides moments of great fun, and that was certainly one of them.

This is our third board game review here at Ars—we've previously reviewed Elder Gods and Drakon, both by Fantasy Flight—and we had originally planned to dive into Tannhauser, a WWI-era miniatures game, also by Fantasy Flight. But someone pointed out in the comments to our last review that the idea is to talk about board games in general, not have a Fantasy Flight column. Hence, our decision to go with Wizards of the Coast's Castle Ravenloft in the third installment. Besides, Castle Ravenloft's claim to fame is offering bite-sized chunks of fourth-edition Dungeons and Dragons—and that's hard to pass up.

Dungeons and Dragons is a game that requires preparation—time to create character sheets and plan a campaign—and the sessions can be long if you're in the middle of an adventure. You can set up one of the 13 co-operative adventures in Castle Ravenloft in a matter of minutes, and a game will last between one hour and 90 minutes once you understand the rules. It's a great way to get your fix, or to bring a new player into the fold. Let's take a look at how the game plays, and what you get in the package.

Oh, games! I love games. Games are COOL!

Do you remember all those fun games you played as a child? Like Sorry, Candyland, Clue or Pit? Actually, I doubt anyone remembers Pit, but well, such is life. Anyway, weren't those games fun? Didn't you enjoy spending your time in competition with your best friends, trying to outwit them and beat them to the finish line? Wasn't it great to see people get all worked up over insignificant rules and bizarre interpretations of those flimsy little sheets the game companies put in the boxes?
Wasn't that AWESOME? Didn't you love playing those?
Weren't they so great that you just wanted to keep on playing them, for the rest of your life? Super cool games like the...
