This review is from: Wrath of Ashardalon: Board Game [With Rulebook & Adventure Book and 20-Sided Die and 200 Encounter, Monster & Treasure Cards and Ma (Toy)
I have to say that Wrath of Ashardalon is probably the best and most balanced of the three D&D boardgames to date. Where Ravenloft was difficult, and Drizzt's characters were very powerful Wrath of Ashardalon is balanced and included options for a campaign as well as a series of linked narrative adventures. Like all D&D boardgames it is solo-able and also comes with a lot of unpainted miniatures, including a Red Dragon (the aforementioned Ashardalon) The miniatures are some of the most useful for regular D&D - orcs, cultists and the like as well as some more gribbly creatures.
Like all D&D adventure games it can be combined with the others of the series.
In particular, this set can be combined with Ravenloft for an attack on an orc stronghold - the rules are available from the wizards.com website.
If you want one of these games, have no particular Drizzt obsession I'd recommend to get this one first.
