In this flip Through Matt Takes a look at out of the Abyss.  I’ve always been a fan of the underdark and I love the role reversal they do with this title.  Most books are about delving into the darkeness, this one is about trying to run from it.  There are so many good things about this book.

I think it’s one of the best written adventure guides I’ve ever read.

I’ve had so much fun with this model I can’t wait to get it painted up. I’ve even been inspired to make a dungeon for my kids.

Matt Speaks RPG 5 The Role of Character 4 Bastard Races

In this episode Matt speaks on the topic of “bastards”.   In role-playing  this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.   It doesn’t mean you’re an illegitimate child or a bad person, instead it means you ae an individual who doesn’t fit in because of race or some other factor.  T his conversation includes half elves, half orcs, and everything els (those weird races that can be awkward to play).

I had a lot of fun with this.   I have totally put a new spin on creating characters that are just odd.  I hope it does the same for you.

Watch as Matt delves into Dungeon from Wizards of the Coast.

 

Dungeon is not what I was expecting.  I was expecting a game that leaned more towards an RPG feel.  But  after I got over my expectations and played the game for what it is; a board game.  I thoroughly enjoy Dungeon.  The game is simple enough that an eight year old can grasp the concepts While an adult can seek more tactical challenges.

The concept of the game is to gather treasure.  Each player assumes the role of a character; Rogue, Cleric, Fighter, or Wizard.  Each Class has a set amount of treasure they need to gather and then get out of the dungeon.  Combat is pretty simple you roll two dice and compare the roll to the number you need to beat on the monsters card.  The greater the challenge the greater the reward.   The rules suggest appropriate threat levels for  the classes.  To be blunt Rogues are wimps so they fight low level monsters.

All in all the game turned out to be pretty good even though I expected something else.  You can play Dungeon with 4 player  a couple of times in an evening fairly easily.
