DungeonQuest (Dungeon Quest)
From the Publisher...
DungeonQuest is a re-imagining of the classic board game of dungeon exploration for 1-4 players. Set in the vibrant fantasy realm of Terrinoth (first popularized by Runebound), DungeonQuest retains the peril, tension, and brutality of the beloved original game while updating both mechanical and thematic elements. Players take on the roles of courageous (or foolish) heroes willing to brave the legendary dangers of Dragonfire Dungeon. Fortune awaits those able to venture into the dragon’s lair...
Legends say that the doors of Dragonfire Dungeon open every sunrise, welcoming brave adventurers into its depths. But once the sun sets, the doors close and seal the fates of those who lingered too long. Only a few have ever returned from Dragonfire Dungeon, and those who have usually come back near death. But they return as heroes nonetheless.
In DungeonQuest, players must guide their heroes through the twisting halls of Dragonfire Dungeon in pursuit of unimaginable riches hoarded by the Dragonlord Kalladra. Whoever can amass the most wealth and make it out of the dungeon before the closing of the doors seals their doom will emerge victorious. However, merely surviving the harrowing dungeon is a feat all its own...
While many similar games rely on a player to control the machinations of the dungeon, Dungeonquest is unique in that the dungeon essentially runs itself. No one at the table knows what lies around the corner, creating a new play experience every time. Additionally, DungeonQuest also includes rules for solo play, so you can even challenge Kalladra’s keep on your own!
Great riches and everlasting glory await if you can survive Dragonfire Dungeon. The Dragonlord Kalladra has challenged all heroes of Terrinoth to test themselves against the most dangerous dungeon in all the realms.
Dare you face the dragon’s challenge?

|Finally! A reprint of one of the all-time classics. The same brutal dungeon awaits you, and you'll laugh when you get near to the end and fall down a bottomless pit...or even better, when your first step sends you down the same.
Includes a new combat system that may not be to the liking of fans of the original, but it's a nice addition and the original combat rules can still be used if you so desire.
Great production with tons of chits, bits, and cards.
|One of the hardest to "win" games you'll ever play, but you'll never have so much fun losing! The totally random game board, constant pressure to try to get some loot and flee before the dragon wakes, and great game mechanics mean that you will play this game again and again!
