Lankhmar Board Game, TSR 1976

Post by Havard » Sun Sep 10, 2017 3:56 pm

While making my list of D&D based board games, I came across this game. Has anyone here played the game? Is it any good? Could it be used to enhance an RPG campaign set in Lankhmar?

It's a good game. It also contains the map that I use when I run F&GM games, since it's the only decent Nehwon hex map that I've found so far. The game is cool because it combines army level action with questing heroes. You might also check out some of the "origin" articles in early Dragon magazine, as they say how the game was created and evolved over the decades before being published by TSR.
