Okay, a couple of these games are a bit weak, I think specifically, of the less than entertaining "Ringside" and the rules heavy "Food Fight"

HOWEVER, the rest of the content merits a 10 for even just one of the games.

"Search for the Emperor's Treasure" is one of the best Dark Tower/Dungeon style board games ever made. If you like Kings and Things, you'll draw some serious parallels to the world it's set in and art style.

"File 13" I have fond memories of from when I got my first copy of this game, many years ago. It's a simple race style board game, making fun of trying to successfully design, print and ship a board game.

"Baton Races of Yaz" is a pure strategy game someone gave a theme when no one was looking. It continues to be a favorite with my family.

"King's Table" Aka "That Viking Game" is a great ancient strategy game in similar lines to chess. I was inspired to pick up a set made of leather with glass beads for the soldier pieces, and it gets a prominent display place in my game room.

8 only for Search for the Emperor's Treasure. The rest deserve a collective 3.

The rating is derived for one game only - my beloved Food Fight. I played that game to DEATH in the 80s...

A great piece of nostalgia from the golden age of D&D. Good quality and a nice variety of games.

The rating is purely for The Emperor's Treasure which is out of the Mertwig's Maze mould - fun on the cheap. King's Table are just re-issues of ancient board games.

Quality of games here are fairly uneven but Search for the Emporer's treasure is almost worth the price of the set.Great game for both kids and adults to play together but you might want to consider reducing the number of imperial treasures needed to end the game.

A couple of these games were a riot - Food Fight and Ringside, and Emperor's Treasure were my favorites.

Some games in this box are more fun that others. File 13 is probably the funniest game of the lot, and very easy to play.

File 13 is almost worth the price alone. A super collection of games that were each previously published in Dragon magazine.

The fun will never end...

I haven't played all the games in this box, but the ones we did were fun. The food fight in the high school cafeteria stands out as the best.
