play board games have posted a review of the Castle Ravenloft boardgame.

From their announcement:

Castle Ravenloft is a cooperative Dungeons and Dragons board game. You explore the castle that is filled with monsters and try to meet scenario-specific goals.

How does it compare to Wrath of Ashardalon?

    We noticed a bunch of subtle fixes in the rules with Wrath. For instance starting treasure, you go through the cards until you get an actual item. We house rule this in Ravenloft which says you get one random treasure card (doesnt say it has to be an item, and does not say what happens if it is an event).

    I find Wrath harder than Ravenloft because of the sentry rule. We just get swarmed with too many monsters causing us to be stuck (sometimes still at the entrance!) and have to deal with an encounter that we do not have enough XP to cancel.
