A setting of gothic horror is the theme for a new board game coming from Wizards of the Coast in August:  the Castle Ravenloft Board Game.  Drawing on themes and characters from the Dungeons & Dragons setting, the board game will pit the players against the evil master of the haunted caste.


Castle Ravenloft will be a cooperative game for one to five players.  Multiple scenarios are included to keep the game challenging for multiple plays.  The game was designed by Bill Slavicsek and Mike Mearls.


The box will contain 40 plastic miniature heroes and monsters, 13 sheets of dungeon tiles, 200 playing cards, a scenario book, and a 20-sided die.  Suggested retail price will be $64.95.
