When you place a tile with a black triangle you are also supposed to draw an encounter card during the Villain phase, so tiles with black triangles definitely can be more dangerous than those with white triangles. From page 6 of the rulebook (right column, top of page): Triangles: Each tile features a triangle. When you place a new tile, the triangle ...

The last expansion for the game was Lords of Madness in 2010. The release of the Dragon Collector's Set this December -— a 5-figure fixed set -- suggests that the future of the line will be in the arena of figures to assist the play of the Dungeons & Dragons RPG. This evidence supports the idea that the "popularity trend" for this game is declining, if ...

A Gray Hag promo exists, but it was a fairly limited release. Wrath of Ashardalon is fully compatible with Castle Ravenloft, and Wizards has released bonus adventures that combine the two games. Legend of Drizzt is the latest game in the series and, according to the product information page, is also fully compatible with both other games.

Yes, they are their own tile. The rule book defines Tiles and Squares in page 6: A tile is the basic building block of the dungeon, drawn from the Cavern Tile stack. A square is one of the spaces on a Cavern tile. Unfortunately, this definition technically rules out the Cavern Edge Tiles, because the are not drawn from the stack. Still, on page ...

This is correct. Tiles are normally placed during the exploration phase. I haven't found a time when they are placed any other time. With this scenario, the first turn is, basically, "skip your hero phase", then explore, battle monsters and possibly deal with an encounter.

First: On each tile, there is a skull pile on the floor. When the first monster is placed on the tile, it is placed on the skull tile. Each subsequent monster placed on that tile is placed as close to the skull pile as possible, so any square adjacent to it. I believe this is stated in the rulebook, but I don't have it in fromt of me, so I will add the ...

BoardGameGeek Castle RavenLoft has quite a few used-made scenarios and extra characters. The most are listed in the Variants forum, although you may look around in there a bit and find some others under "rules" maybe. One of my favorites is "Crypts And Creepers", although it's more of an 'expansion', not just another scenario. WotC is also having a "Build ...

After playing the "Wrath of Ashardalon" game (same system, different scenario), the biggest strategy that came to my mind is sticking together/splitting the party. If you split the party, you can explore more rooms (hopefully getting to the boss quicker), but you have more monsters (and encounters and monsters with ecounters) to deal with. If you stay ...

From page 11 of the Castle Ravenloft™ game's rulebook, and again in Wrath of Ashardalon™'s one (which is the second title that uses the D&D® Adventure System): ✦ If the tactic requires the Monster to move to a new tile, place the Monster on the new tile’s bone pile if that square is empty. Whenever possible, Monsters move from tile to tile by ...

I don't know about add-ons for Castle Ravenloft, but I know wizards made ANOTHER D&D Adventure System board game called Wrath of Ashardalon.

This is not an official ruling, but the way I've seen it played is, when a daily power is used a second time, all related tokens are removed from the board and placed again by the player according to the rules of that power.

Actually LittleBobbyTables, Klak's artifact has 5 hitpoints, so attacking it with Tied of Iron may well not be enough to destroy it, in which case I reckon it would knock it to another tile. In fact, my kids were playing and this ended up being the exact situation. The Ranger had just reached 0 hps leaving only the Fighter and Klak's artifact- it needed to ...

I found the following entry at the D&D Adventure Systems Wiki: Attack one adjacent Monster. If you hit, place that Monster (if it isn't destroyed) on a tile within 1 tile of you, and you can move to any square on your tile. So you could use Tide of Iron to attack it (since its treated as a monster), but Klak's Artifact states: Attacking ...
