Santa is bringing Descent to my oldest boy for christmas. To "learn" the game my wife and I wanted to go through it once first. We started around 11pm when the kids finally went to bed. It is now nearly 4AM. Not bad. It was fun and more importantly age appropiate for my oldest.

Yeah I picked up the first set when it first came out. We only ended up playing a few games but it was enjoyable overall. I agree that it (Along with games like Hero Quest, WQ, etc) can make great RPG trainers. Good on you for getting the youngling involved!

As much as anything I thought that Descent could be good for GM training specifically since it is still fairly structured but requires one player to play the NPC's for the party. I have not, however, had a chance to implement that idea to date.

I never picked up any of the expansions because we just did not play the original much; has anyone else played these?

I have that game and its first expansion. I painted all the minis and use them often in my other games. I painted a red ring around the base of the elite ones. Its a fun game, we still play it from time to time.
