Since FFG has the license to make Blizzard board-games, how about making a Diablo Quest/Dungeon-crawl board game?

I don't know on this. We already have Descent. Maybe this sort of game could be sold as an expansion onto Descent.

That would work but would be messier cause then you have to buy 2 games just to play.

The DOOM model would also work!

A random game like Warhammer Quest would be the best.  Technically, I think FFG has the rights to Warhammer Quest as it is a Games Workshop boardgame.  But I hear the molds got lost/burned up years ago.   (Of course licensing both Diablo & Warhammer Quests would probably not be profitible for one project)

Actually, the more I think of it a Diablo expansion for Descent would not be a bad idea at all.  It would definitely work!

I agree. I think Fantasy Flight could take Descent in many directions and still keep it a great and balanced game.

From what I hear FFG does not have the rights to GW minis products such as Warhammer Quest.  This is why GW, not FFG, produced Space Hulk.  FFG only covers card & rpg GW games.

IMHO Warhammer Quest is overrated simply because it's OOP.   Descent eclipses WQ in rules and gameplay.

That said, I love Descent and would like to play a Diablo expansion, or stand-alone game.  If the Diablo game had an auto-overlord co-op feature, like Warhammer Quest has, even the better.  Diablo has a slightly darker & demonic theme than Descent's high fantasy.  And Diablo heroes mow through monsters much faster (and would require many more minis).

The more I talk it up, the more I want a Diablo dungeon crawl game (with auto-overlord please).

A Runebound style Diablo game would also work quite well.  And it would be easily expandible with card-decks.

This would probably be much cheaper and easier for FFG to come up with!

I think diablo needs its own game. descent makes you restart gear each game most of the appeal of diablo is getting sweet gear. maybe set the game that once you find(draw) a set item that the chances of getting the rest becomes easier. like for each item you have on you can draw an extra card from the set item deck or something. i remember d&d but out 2 books or so and a there was a box game too. but neither seemed to quite get it, in my opinion. i bet ffg could do a good game based off diablo without trying to copy the pc version. the d&d one was just a port pretty much.

a campaign board game like the old heroquest would suit diablo great i think.
