What’s your favorite D&D Adventure System game?

Castle Ravenloff, Wrath of Ashardalon, etc.

Ravenloft is the only one I have played. I also have Legand of Drizzt but haven’t played that one. Were there any rules tweaks later in the series?

My favorite is still 'Castle Ravenloft'. It's the most difficult and it had some great variety in the missions and boss monsters.
Both 'Wrath of Ashardalon' and 'Legend of Drizz't' just streamlined the game's formula at the cost of variety. WoA had better magic items and Drizz't had better characters but in both cases the net result was too easy scenarios.

The two latest entries 'Temple of Elemental Evil' and 'Tomb of Annihilation' fully support campaign play. While I really enjoyed that, the scenarios were still way too easy and the quality of the minis has declined.

I find they're all pretty interchangeable in terms of game play quality - and I'm sorry to admit that I've cannibalized all my games for minis to use in D&D (I own all of them except ToA). I greatly prefer Shadows of Brimstone or Descent if you're looking for a dungeon crawling boardgame.
 
Castle Ravenloft. This game is dynamic and diverse, even if you have already passed a scenario, you have the opportunity to go through it again, and the game will never be the same as the previous one - it is unlikely that you will meet the same monsters, or you can build a similar dungeon map.

Ravenloft has always had been my favorite. Something about gothic horror and RPG's that just goes well together

I always enjoyed the Dragon Lance series.

At one time, me (as the DM), had two parallel campaigns ready.

1.) The group stays with Paladine and fights the evil dragons.

2.) The group joins the army of the dark queen.


I think my group was kind of shocked that I was even allowing them to join Takhisis, not knowing I had already planned out the whole thing.
