I Was A Teenage Dungeon Master: Apples & Oranges

You may or may have heard of The Apples Project (http://applesproject.blogspot.com/)... it was/is my attempt to recognize great games based upon their theme or mechanic rather than on the year that they were published. Back in 2002 (the first time I did The Apples Project), I added a category that was not well-received... but fits right in with our discussion here: "D&D in a board game". The winners were:

* Drakon
* Dungeonquest
* Heroquest/Advanced Heroquest
* Lord of the Rings (Knizia)
* Wiz War

If I was going to make up a similar list today, here's the five games I'd put on it:

* Catacombs
* Dungeonquest
* Heroscape
* Prophecy
* Return of the Heroes

Your mileage may vary. :-)
