About this deal

With simplified concepts and fast-paced gameplay, players are set out to battle monsters, collect treasures, and not die. If you like to laugh and allow yourself to have fun and get creative, it's a great intro to this kind of role play gaming. A hero can declare either an attack or use their special ability, which can only be used once per dungeon board.

Pick a boss, connect the four dungeon boards, select the current adventure deck, and the game is ready to play. Not only did my son and I have so much fun playing this, my wife and even visiting family wanted to play it too.Another aspect of the game that we found after multiple plays is that there just aren’t enough item cards. You then build the rest of the map by randomizing the other boards and connecting them in a row to the first. Once the monster has been defeated, the victories heroes join the rest of the party in the core space. It doesn’t matter how well you describe your actions, how brilliant your group’s plan to get past the zombies is, or how clever your trap is, the end result will be based on a single die roll with the results dictated by the encounter card.

Gold can be used to purchase items, level up (there is a second level available to each combat tile which increases the damage of attacks) or to revive. I expected them to fall into the trap of describing the same thing over and over (which the game doesn’t prevent you from doing in any way), but they haven’t, each time coming up with a different way to use this power. Play then moves on to the next space on the map, until the party reaches a gatekeeper space at the end of the map.

that would also have been fine, but to just send me a copy of a game I have zero interest in and claim that’s my replacement product is just not cool. That monster determines the last map tile you will use and three of the encounters you will face along the way. Once the game is over, you can play the game again, perhaps using a new character or taking on a new big bad, or both. Each card also contains an outcome which will be read by the then-DM after the scenario or combat is completed.

Then we wrap up with a short week in review where Moe shares the games he got for his birthday and some thoughts on both Crokinole and The Ghost in the Machine. However if some players chose to move to the monster space, the next monster card in the deck is selected and combat begins with only those players in the monster space involved. With four story lines and 24 adventure cards for each map (96 total), the game can be played multiple times whilst limiting repetition in the storyline. Each of the four dungeon boards has three core spaces in the middle, two monster spaces to the sides, and one gatekeep space at the end.
