One of my favorite bloggers, Frontline Gamer, did a review of the product which was not super enthusiastic. The thing is, the things he didn't like about it are less likely to be problems when I am playing with Rhys. The real thing Rhys wants is a dungeon crawler with minis that is cooperative play. He wants the two of us to go kill bad guys and he wants it to be done with miniatures. This game should answer the mail.
Rhys is not reading yet, so I'll be helping him with that part, but he does understand rolling dice and he certainly recognizes a bad guy when he sees one. The mechanics of the game look simple enough. The minis don't look like they will take paint very well, since they are bendy plastic, but I am going to hit them with a black wash to bring out some of the detail. I'll post pictures to show you how it came out.
There is a lot in the box, but I'll point you to Frontline Gamer's review (here again in case you missed the link above) to see it all. Here is ThinkGeek's picture of the contents.

Rhys was blown away with his look through of the box contents, so it bodes well for our dungeon crawler search. More to follow after the weekend.
