A new board game, Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Begins, is aimed at families and newcomers to the D&D brand ages 10 and older, and it’s set for release Oct. 1, 2020.
Retailing for $25, Adventure Begins obviously seems meant as a low-barrier entree to the world of D&D without any of the more daunting roleplaying game rules.
