A decent edition to the Dungeons & Dragons board games, but not the best

Temple of Elemental Evil is the 4th board game and the 1st in the new type of board game where it is more focused on campaign play as opposed to one shot games. Trap cards have been changed for tokens and not every revealed floor tile will have a monster on it, though some may have far more than 1. The campaign is fun, but it isn't quite as good as the prior 3 games. There is a serious balancing issue with it and playing with fewer people can make the game particularly hard. Perhaps Tomb of annihilation or, Mad Mage will improve on what has already been put forward. Currently, The Legend of Drizzt is still the best of the board games, but it's very possible that one of the next two surpass it. If you want to try a board game out in this style, try Castle Ravenloft, Wrath of Ashardalon or Legend of Drizzt and if you like the game, consider buying this as you can expand the games you already have with lots of new content.

In the Dungeons & Dragons: Temple of Elemental Evil Board Game, you play as a heroic adventurer. With amazing abilities, spells and magic weapons, you must explore the dungeons beneath the Sword Coast where you will fight monsters, overcome hazards and find treasure. Are you ready for adventure?

Temple of Elemental Evil includes multiple scenarios, challenging quests, and co-operative game play designed for 1-5 players. The contents can also be combined with other D&D Adventure System Cooperative play board games, including The Legend of Drizzt and Castle Ravenloft.

Each player selects a hero, such as a fighter, cleric, or wizard. On their turn, each player can explore further into the dungeon (turn over new tiles), move through the already explored parts of the dungeon, and fight monsters. When a new dungeon tile is revealed, there is typically an encounter of some sort, and new monsters to fight are added. Slain monsters reward the players with treasure, and experience points, allowing them to level up and increase their skills during play. Players must cooperate to stay alive, slay the monsters, and achieve the goal of their quest. Each scenario has a different goal, from retrieving a relic to slaying a large boss monster.

 

1-5 PLAYERS | 60 MINS | AGES 14+
