It’s been ages since I’ve played a real game of Dungeons and Dragons. In D&D there is a lot of things that hold you back from starting a full campaign. Running a campaign is a lot of work, with a lot of rules to memorize and it’s not the easiest game for a beginner to pick up. Mostly it seems the limiting factor for getting a tabletop rpg going is getting your friends in the same room at least every couple weeks. So what do you do when you want to get your role playing fix without the time commitment? Play this game:

This is an awesome game. 

Castle Ravenloft takes a lot of the kinks out of the process of playing a game like D&D but offers a similar (but simplified) combat gameplay. You can finish it in one session. It offer several different scenarios. With no character creation, It’s easier for beginners to play. You can even play it forever alone style with one player. I think it’s a truly great board game with a lot of replay value. If you love fantasy board games, this is a must play!
