A cooperative game of adventure for 1-5 players set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons.

It is named after the book series by the same name telling the adventures of the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden and his friends.

Designed for 1-5 players, this boardgame features multiple scenarios, challenging quests, and cooperative game play. Players explore the game world, which is built during the game by laying out tiles, using ready-made player characters and encountering enemies with corresponding miniatures. Encounters are generated by drawing cards and resolved using a D20 die. All players win together, depending on the scenario, by escaping, saving others or overcoming a threat.


JUST ARRIVED - Harry Potter Hogwarts House Cup Challenge Board Game

Hogwarts: House Cup Challenge is an Adventure Board Game that allows 2 - 4 players to portray Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville in their quest to win the House Cup for Gryffindor!

Players move their characters around the board encountering Adventure Cards and increasing their Knowledge, Skill, and Honor. As the Characters' abilities grow, they will face harder challenges based on the first five Harry Potter films, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

Players who complete difficult adventures earn victory points for themselves and for Gryffindor. When Gryffindor reaches 500 points, the player with the most points wins the game!

The First Play Rules allow beginners to play a full game in 30 minutes. The Full Rules allow for a complete adventure as the characters progress and grow through the first five films.
