Playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons is neither, as many people imagine, solely an occupation of cold, hungry students or the blue, furry hooded anorak brigade. Nor is it pursued by satanic hordes who all do strange things with goats and new born calves.

So why play it? The goats and calves all sounds like heaps of fun, but hard work (I'd imagine). What is needed is a bit of imagination and a endless supply of chocolate and coffee.

The game, based around the Dragonlance series of novels, involves you blocking the path of on evil sorceress before she escapes from her underworld prison and lays waste to the land of Krynn. You control eight (count 'em) characters including members from all the well known D&D races; dwarf, elf, and human and these are divided into warriors and spell casters all of who vary widely in skills and strength.

Exploration is the name of the game and picking up objects and money helps your mission. There is some real fighting action but this game really involves some brainpower, judgment and above all, strategy.

The story has great depth and the graphics are well drawn and detailed. If you're a joystick basher this game may not appeal but to anyone who likes AD&D or does strange things with farmyard animals, it'll have you indoors and out of trouble for weeks.

Falls in between real action and pure role playing scenarios a bit of a Jack of all trades and master of none How ever, the detail should add interest.
