    hey Tom, I have just completed making a fun game and getting it published at the game crafter. it's called last man standing, with the dungeon master adventure expansion. (you can find the video on my channel). are you possibly doing reviews to help get a game out there? maybe I can get a game sent to you? I really think you'd like it having seen you talk about many games you like. cheers! and thanks

    Is time stories really worth buying? It just seems like a game with ZERO replay value.

    Nice and quick, I miss Sam and Zee's input and discussion with Tom though.

    I know most people hate it, but as far as "Adventure" gaming is concerned, Talisman is near the top! Sure it's totally luck based, it's always a new adventure, with friends remembering crazy shit that happened for years to come.

    I was hoping Tom would mention Talisman. It's like the Dice Tower never mentions it or acknowledges it's existence. It's an old classic but still amazing.

    Not sure if bias or something else but it's hard to take this seriously when you skipped Mage Knight, sorry. I was really interested in this list at first.

    Nice attempt at using Carmina Burana for the intro musical score…without violating any copyrights. 🙂

  • yair1010 3 hours ago

    Really, Tom?!?
    No Mage Knight??

  • Daniel Hutchings 3 hours ago

    I miss the three of them doing top 10s together, those are way more fun.

  • Chris Parks 3 hours ago

    I agree with most of the list. Duel of Ages II is amazing! Mage Knight The board game should have been on there. That game is superb!

  • Joel Andrew Falardeau 3 hours ago

    I own 3 out of 10 of these!

  • Alexandre Emerit 3 hours ago

    Hi, fred Henry, has recently said on the forum of the french website "Trictrac", that he has signed with cool mini or not for a third game of The Adventurers !

    Great list!! Kind of miss Zee and Sam giving you trouble for your choices.

    Sigh Descent 2 is not a dungeon crawl and not an adventure game as well – so overrated.

    You should really play Shadows of Brimstone, Tom. It will fire Descent 2. Fortune & Glory is another great adventure game. The old classic World of Warcraft – The board game as well.

    Maybe fans of that genre should check Assault on Doomrock as well.

    My top 10:

    1.) Shadows of Brimstone (even a crawler- very adventure-ish)
    2.) Machina Arcana (same here)
    3.) Fortune & Glory
    4.) Robinson Crusoe
    5.) World of Warcraft – The board game
    6.) Relic
    7.) Eldritch Horror (not gameplay wise – but the feel of adventuring is not that big like in Fortune & Glory)
    8.) Posthuman (not playtested enough)
    9.) Runebound 2nd Edition (did not play 3rd)
    10.) Mice & Mystics

  • Rafa Gonzalez 3 hours ago

    That's a nice adventure hat! I love the concept of Mice and Mystics, thanks for the tip

    Cannibal Pygmies!! Now you're talking 😉

    Talisman !!?

  • Gaming With Geo 3 hours ago

    Fortune & Glory would easily top this list for me.

    No D&D Adventure game system?

    I like how Tom differentiated between Dungeon Crawls and Adventure games. Many people don't do that, but some games fit both genres.

    Fantasy is my 2nd favorite genre, and pretty much my favorite genre to find in a game, so I was interested in this.

    Here is my Top 10 Adventure games:

    1. Tikal – Not much in adventure but there is some. You are exploring and looking for temples. As an Amerithrash gamer, it's this theme that has this game as my #3 game over all. I even have a music cd I made for thematic music.

    2. Talisman: 2nd edition & 4th edition – I have been playing Talisman since 1986 or 87 and it's great still.

    3. Cutthroat Caverns – the base game is only a Dungeon Crawl but there are expansions that give you a scenario, although I haven't played those yet, so I am cheating. 🙂

    4. Relic – a space game built around the Talisman mechanic, but tweaked for faster play

    5. Prophecy – a fantasy adventure game which I have only played 1 partial play through, but absolutely loved. It needs more play, and may rise up in rank!

    6. Runebound 2nd Edition – I haven't played 3rd edition yet

    7. Forbidden Desert – hey BGG calls this an adventure game, and running out of choices

    8. Lord of the Rings co-op (2000 game) – it's feeling it's age, and needs more plays, as I haven't played it much lately, but a decent game

    9. Betrayal at House on the Hill – an ok game for a social/party time atmosphere

    10. HeroQuest – haven't played it in ages, but quite enjoyed it. I would like to play it again and see if it rates elsewhere

    I only snuck one dungeon crawl in there, but there is at least 1 other I quite enjoy.

    I don't know if Duel of Ages II is an adventure game, but yeah good list. So many adventure games out there that it's got to be hard to just pick 10.

    Time Stories was ok. Not sure Id play it again. The fact that you had to replay the starting encounters (often in the same exact order) to progress felt unneeded and ultimately tiresome. Why not just rewind to the point where you took the wrong path instead? As is, half the game play of subsequent playthroughs are known events, known outcomes, no longer exciting, and not surprising. It Felt like the idea to start over each time was simply to extend game time only.

    I know many games are repetitive to a certain degree but at least the order and severity of events in many games differ. Even in Legacy, each individual games unfolds differently. This games particular repetition causes me hesitation to buy another module and makes me wonder if there is enough fresh content per installment to justify $20-$30 add ons.
