Wow, I’m blinded by the retro-ness of this game! Dungeons and Dragons: Dragon Quest was actually pretty fun when it was released. To be honest, seeing it again makes me want to pick it up and play. You see, Dragon Quest was special, because character creation was a much more involved process in this game than the standard D&D romp. Characters had to roll dice for everything, but it allowed for much greater customization. I enjoyed this immensely, since I get more out of my character’s story than the other aspects of campaigning.
Dragon Quest was an easier version of D&D; rules were streamlined and simplified here, in order to focus more on the storytelling aspects and characterization of the players involved. This makes it perfect for your little gamers. Quest was like any other campaign product in this line, the game is only as good as you made it. It comes with six figures, a bunch of monsters, the game board, and accessories to make a full campaign (and they’re reusable, as you’d expect).
You’ll probably want Dragon Quest because its retro feel appeals to you (you played it before, or you’re looking for older content), and you’re looking for D&D-lite to ease your kids into tabletop gaming.
Try not to look at the box top for too long, though. I grew a full beard just from glancing at it.
