Dungeon of Doom
Trapped in an abandoned mine while playing Wizards and Warriors, Frank and Joe must uncover the identity of a mysterious Secret Wizard Master, or they may never see daylight again.

The Hardy Boys accidentally find themselves drawn into a real-life game of Wizards and Warriors (I’m sure that for legal reasons this is entirely distinct from Dungeons & Dragons) in this 1989 book 99 in the series.
The danger is very real, but the characterisations are off - Joe is much more short tempered and violent than ever before.
For the most part, it does feel like a tribute to D&D - there’s just one moment where it feels like they are bullying another teenager for their participation in the game.
An exciting and interesting take on the series.
