Random Encounters is a party adventure like no other. A cooperative Role Playing Game involving the defeat of monsters, evading of traps, and challenges from the most fearsome bosses. The artwork is that of a very classic fantasty trope, with knights, wizards, and archers. All included with unique stats, and different playability.
The game plays simple: Leader draws an encounter card, the party resolves the encounter, and from there they can use, trade, or equip loot. After that, the leader moves to the left; and repeat. After 2 rounds, a monster boss will show up which then involves a collective amount of hussle and fun defeating them.
What you can expect is a non dungeon master adventure including you, a few teamates and endless encounters. What I found impressive was the player in and out function that allows players to join or exit whenever they please. I would consider this game the perfect gateway to introducing your friends into the world of RPG. I personally am a huge fanatic for RPG’s, whether it’s Pathfinder, Hero’s Journey Home, or Dungeon Romp. I enjoy both DM’ing and being included as a character. This game helps get those you’d love to play included in the fun, without the overwhelming bookshelves worth of information they’d need, in order to understand RPG’s in their entirety.
