Whining at the GM till the Undead Horse is defeated.
There are 4 phases, kick in the door, look for trouble, loot the room, and charity. Combat between you (and sometimes your friends) and monsters consists of you you or other players playing cards from your had to give bonuses to either side. For (almost) every monster you defeat, you gain a level. First player to level 10 wins.
I played this with a couple of other hardcore gamers, and I think it was kind of ruined because of that. We have all been hardcore pen and paper rpg players and we still play card games, so having both of them mixed was weird. I feel if I played this with casual gamers, it would have left me with a great experience. I loved the art and some of the items and monsters were hilarious (Kneepads of Allure and the monster Lawyer that won't attack other thieves). I think I will be bringing this over to my cousin's house and try it out again.
It is worth checking out and you are not limited to only D&D style. They have themed versions for pirates, ninjas, space, vampires, old west, and more. There are expansions for almost every version also. You can also combine different versions together with very little confusion as to how to mix them. I recommend this game, just not in a highly competitive environment.
