I am just about to pick up Dungeon of D from the local printer, and am already thinking about what to print next. Looking at the cards in Island of D, i see many similar cards, but different mechanics (draw card vs. dice). Should i be looking at Island of D2 instead? Should i print them all out and play them in a certain order (chronologically?) Should I skip I of D altogether if it is superseded by Dungeon of D?
What about Adventure of D? I'm thinking about ordering that too, but where does it fit in?

If you ignore the story, you can find the ones that you like:
- see the gametime to see whether if that game a quick game or a longer/more involving one
- see the number of player to see how many players can play
- see the theme and/or mechanic


For story continuity: it's IoD-IoD2-DoD/SoD-AoD (only AoD is commercial)

IoD is a 30 minutes adventure game using dice. Some Players prefer dice than cards..

Other than IoD, all other use the Power Card system, but each with a different tweak to match the game theme:

IoD2 is a 1 Player 15 minutes adventure game.

DoD is a 1 Player full blown 60 mintues of dungeon crawling game (well, if you survive that long devil )

SoD is a 1 Player 20 minutes Tower Defense game (still needs someone to redesign the cards to make it full-color...whistle )

AoD is a 1-4 Players adventure game (gametime is around 30 minutes / Player).

Note:
-AoD basically is an extended+enriched version of IoD2, and can be played by 1-4 Players. If you like IoD2 (you can try the Flash game easily), I think you will love AoD.
-My other games: GoD (space combat) and FoD (RPS fighting) each has a different theme & mechanic.
-You can check each game rating/comments in D Series family.


Hope this helps
