Also: Want!

Wrath of Ashardalon just released and I have every intent to pick up a copy just as soon as my pocketbook allows. This is the second D&D-based board game released by WOTC in the past year. I recently had the opportunity to play the first, called Castle Ravenloft, and had an absolute blast!

Unlike the vast majority of board games, which pit player vs. player, these D&D boardgames operate under a cooperative play structure. i.e. all the players are on the same team, struggling to accomplish a common goal. In that sense, they are similar to the Arkham Horror games, but I'm fairly certain the player-win percentage is significantly higher in the D&D games... because Cthulu cheats.
