Thanks @Nav und @Niall78! And yep, they definitely will see a table rather sooner than later
And I’ve played DnD a long time back, but only “Pen and Paper Rpg” and we didn’t use miniatures at all at the time, so not sure how that experience compares to what you have in mind @Nav. In any case Dungeon Saga has much more of a “boardgame” feel than DnD imho.
Similar to HeroQuest as @Niall78 pointed out, but I guess you could also say it’s sort of “DnD” if DnD had simplified KoW-rules and it was all dungeon crawling, not a full RPG.
The original campaign is a set number of scenarios with set heroes and equipment for each scenario, so really easy to pick up and play. But there’s also advanced rules for leveling heroes up and even going into “uncharted” dungeons that you explore as you go and evolve randomly.
Not sure if that all made sense, tried to describe it best I could!
It sure is a great game for a gaming night with a bunch of friends and even someone only casually interested in wargaming or RPGs could easily jump in and play with a group.
