According to this article the new 5th edition campaign ties in with the new board game. I have a few friends who are interested in learning D&D and my current group is almost finished with Rise of Tiamat. So I was thinking of buying the board game depending on how it ties into the campaign book that I already have.
I would like to know how the board game relates to the campaign from someone who has played both, or at least owns both and can look at both.
I am hoping that the board game Temple of Elemental Evil precedes the Chapter "Temple of the Evil Elemental Eye" in the campaign book. That way I can introduce the new players through the board game (something I think may be more accessible to them as gamers) and either dovetail the characters into the campaign, or at least provide insight for them when they play the full campaign.
