If you follow the @MajorSpoilers Twitter feed, you may have noticed a few weeks ago that the family unit has been having a blast playing the Wrath of Ashardalon board game, and there may even be a recording of a game session somewhere… Interestingly, we may be getting a new board game in March.
The news comes out of ICv2 which saw a preorder sheet from WizKids that stated the game would continue “the grand adventures of Wrath of Ashardalon, Castle Ravenloft, and The Legend of Drizzt,”
I really do like the D&D board games and for those who don’t want to jump into a full Dungeons and Dragons campaign, the board game is a great introduction to the world. The game play and scenarios of the games keep each session fresh, and the power set allows players to bring something new to the table each time.
One of the interesting things in the story is a quote that says Wizards of the Coast is designing and developing the game, which makes me wonder what WizKids is doing. Obviously, Wizards of the Coast and WizKids have declined to comment on the story.
WizKids took over the miniatures from Wizards of the Coast last year, and considering the board games have a ton of miniatures in them, it makes sense for WizKids to be involved in a new board game. As mentioned earlier, I really enjoyed the Wrath of Ashardalon and Legend of Drizzt board games, and if there is a chance that another installment is on the way, I’m all for it.
