Board Games 1987
Like the Doom boardgame, Descent is a thematic but repetitive dicefest that offers minimal tactical decisions. I have played just once. Descent was fun for about the first hour, with lots of combat and those neat dice. By the third hour, I was bored with the sameness of it all. There seemed to be little narrative beyond open door/kill monsters/repeat/repeat/end. And death for the player characters was a joke, kind of a cross between a trip to the penalty box and a trip to the mall.
