[YouTube] Quest for the Dungeonmaster Game (1984)

TSR's 1984 board game isn't directly based on the pen-and-paper Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) but rather the Saturday morning cartoon (1983-85). This is my first video dedicated to a single board game in part because fantasy worlds are fun and I enjoyed the cartoon when it aired, and, of course, most things related to D&D have cool artwork (like the Colorforms set I showed previously). Plus, it's a fairly simple video to put together which always helps and it has some monsters so it vaguely works as a Halloween video, maybe. Also, this year the Dungeon Master character made a return in the video game Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms and Hasbro recently unveiled some new action figures based on the show in a line titled Dungeons & Dragons Cartoon Classics. As you'll seen in the video or the photos below, the board game surprisingly doesn't use dice or even a spinner. Instead players move around the board and interfere with their opponent's movements using cards.
