Dungeons & Dragons: Conquest of Nerath is normally not the type of game we'd be showing you here. Why's that? Because it requires no screens, wires, microchips or electricity. It's G4 Unplugged! Thanks to the fine folks at Wizards of the Coast, we were able to get an exclusive sneak peek at this upcoming board game, and you can check out our unboxing video below. If you're looking for Risk and Axis & Allies style gameplay in the realms of D&D, then Conquest of Nerath is exactly what you've been waiting on.
Plenty of us at G4 don't stop playing games when we turn our consoles and PCs off, and we're going to bring you more of these board game previews and reviews from time to time. We'll be checking out Fantasy Flight's Gears of War board game later this year, as well as checking out titles like Battlestar Galactica, Space Alert, Puerto Rico, and plenty of others. Got a favorite board game you like playing? Let us know and we'll check it out!
War has come to the Dungeons & Dragons world! In the north, the undead legions of the Dark Empire of Karkoth march against the fragile League of Nerath, determined to sweep away the human kingdoms forever. To the south, the infernal Iron Circle launches its own goblin hordes in a campaign of conquest against the elves and corsairs of Vailin. From the snowy expanse of the Winterbole Forest to the sun-warmed coasts of ancient Vailin, four great powers struggle for survival.
Muster armies of footsoldiers, siege engines, monsters, and dragons to attack your enemies. Fight across the waves with fleets of warships and raging elementals. Plunder ancient dungeons with bands of mighty heroes, searching for magical artifacts and awesome treasures that might tip the scales of battle in your favor. The fate of empires is in your hands! Dungeons & Dragons: Conquest of Nerath will be released on June 21, 2011, and will retail for $79.99.

- Game board
- 110 cards
