Order of the Stick Adventure Game: Dungeon of Dorukan: APE Games
I got this as a gift for xmas '06. I'm a big fan of new and unusual games, as well as webcomics. I hadn't read Order of the Stick prior to receiving the game, but the comic is hilarious. The game is just as funny too. Cards inside include such jems as "Deep-Seated Emotional Problems", "Goblinthwacker", "Cure Assorted Wounds", "Evan's Spiked Tentacles of Forced Intrusion", "That Thing with the Eyes", "Dragon from the Front of the Box", "Ghoul (or possibly a Ghast)", "A Room with a Motivational Poster", "Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Room, Echo Rooom" and "The Room that Never Appeared in the Comic". The game follows what's essentially the first main story arc of the comic. Up to six players take on the role of the main characters from the comic and explore a dungeon that gets created randomly each time it's played. I haven't had the opportunity to do much more than unpack it and do a trial setup but my friends and I are itching to find the time to play a full game.
1 word AMAZING!
