Avalon Hill is currently preordering D&D: The Yawning Portal, a fantasy strategy game, on their DTC Hasbro Pulse site.

In this game, players take on the roles of tavern staff attempting to satiate the hunger of visiting adventurers. Players accomplish this by matching up food tokens with the orders that are depicted on each Hero's card, and receive gems for each matching food token as well as a bonus for successfully fulfilling the orders. As players collect more points, they build up to completing objectives, which earn an end of game bonus in scoring. The player with the most points wins the game.

The game box includes 5 game board pieces, 48 food tokens, 68 Hero cards, 9 Objective cards, 16 Action tiles, 9 Enchant Food Potion tokens, 30 blue sapphire gem tokens, 30 green emerald gem tokens, 30 red ruby gem tokens, 30 yellow topaz gem tokens, 20 white diamond gem tokens, 4 player reference cards, and game guide. This game is for one to four players, ages 12 and up, and preorders for $55.99.  Thus far, there is no word on a hobby channel release date for this game.

Avalon Hill is also preordering RISK Shadow Forces, a new Legacy style RISK game (see "Post-Apocalyptic 'RISK' Game").
