Recently, I watched Geek & Sundry’s episode of Tabletop where they played Mice and Mystics. If you have never seen Tabletop before, I would encourage you to watch it. Not only is it informative about the games it covers, but it is also very entertaining.
At the beginning of the video, Wil Wheaton brings up the “RPG in a Box.” Mice & Mystics fits into this category since it is a hybrid of roleplaying and board games. I consider this a good move since the gaming industry needs more entry-level roleplaying games to keep them alive and thriving in the market.
