|A superb Dungeon crawling game. It plays in about an hour and you can really have a good RPG feel in it. I like the exploration aspect of the game and prefer it over a pre-built dungeon.
|This is a very cool game. I just got it in yesterday and my friends and I had a game going within an hour of opening the package.
The rules aren't very long, but there is a lot to learn about the game. Expect to spend about 30 minutes reading the rules alone. The rules are on double sided legal paper, so it's not like a 223 page rulebook like you get with a lot of complex tabletop games.
If you enjoy adventuring, yet you lack the space to play a game like Runebound, then Dungeoneer is a good choice to go with.
The game is comprised of cards, you use map cards to map out the dungeons and wilderness and then your heros move throughout the map, collecting "glory", which you use to benefit your character, and "peril", which is used by other players to play banes and monsters on you.
To win, you must either complete 3 quests, or defeat all opponents. Typically, it says that the amount of time it takes to complete a game is roughly 30 minutes per player, so if 4 players, it could take roughly 2 hours, so plan your time accordingly.
|A great set in the dungeoneer series. It provides an entry level challenge with a focus on the undead. It has relatively simple rules (for the series) and is a great starting point if you are new to Dungeoneer.
