This game is really amazing and it's a great D&D adventure board game, and I really was surprised by this one, because it has almost everything you could expect from a tactical D&D adventure board game. it's gameplay feels very familiar for the fans and you get a hang of it as soon as you start to play the game, tactical combat system is very amazing and also challenging, and makes the experience even more enjoyable and fun for you. the game's presentation including the visuals and sounds are really great too and if you are a fan of D&D adventure board games, you really should try this fantastic game!
Tales from Candlekeep Tomb of Annihilation is based on the series of D&D board games which is partly based on some of the rules from 4th edition D&D. It mostly follows the rules of the game but adds a crafting system and allows you to use adrenaline surges gained from beating enemy to cancel out bad events rather than by spending XP. You start with the ability to play as one of four heroes and eventually unlock the ability to control all four at once, each character has a unique passive ability, at will powers, and utility and daily powers that can only be used once in each quest. Quests each have three difficulty settings and you attempt to complete their objective by moving characters to the edge of large titles which drops another piece on the board with randomized enemies, treasure chests, traps, and space that can lead to the next tile. If you don't explore events are drawn that can cause certain thing to happen, mostly bad things. The game is still being updated with some good upcoming changes (like seeing hit chance and enemy stats) and they seem to be thinking over their implementation of line of sight. The main issues are that the price can be fairly high for the amount of content, though the game does look good, if they planned to add or sell the other games or heroes from those games for a reasonable price it would give more value and options to the game.
Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation is Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Game, based on a board game and it is adaptation of it for PC. Basically, it is turn-based RPG on a board. While graphics and sound are competent and gameplay itself fun and challenging, don't expect any mindblowing plot, Divinity Original Sin, Baldur's Gate or anything of the sort, because it is digital board game. The biggest draw of it is that it is single-player only, when the original board game could be played with 4 or 5 other people. It's a real shame that there is not even a hot-seat option to play together. And all, countless iterations of Talisman show that it is possible to make multiplayer game out of a board game, so why there is none of here is a big question. Still, fun game to play alone, but nothing mindblowing - just digitised version of a good board game, lacking any sort of multiplayer or co-op.
