I dropped $20 on one of those Lego board games today. There is a D&D-esque series of four linked sets
(sold separately) where you pick a barbarian or ranger or druid (each with their own powers), and run around a little dungeon picking up gold and fighting werewolves and spiders. Hurrah! Lego D&D!
Sadly, the game itself was not very fun to play, which blows, because a) my wife got interested in me putting it together and agreed to play, and b) $20.
A cursory glance around the internets did not turn up any rules hacks, but I know beyond the faintest shadow of a doubt that they are out there. I believe in the power of nerd culture.
Help me, Story Games. You're my only hope. Don't let that $20 have been spent in vain.
