So this is my first ever attempt at a video review for a board game. I opted to use this format for 2 reasons. The first reason being mainly just because I wanted to try something new, and the other reason because this game is relatively simple and I didn’t feel a verbose writeup was needed. Dungeon! is a game I wasn’t exactly in love with in the beginning, but after taking my elitist hobby gamer goggles off and just realizing it was a cool game for kids who might want a taste of D&D it’s great. For 20$ it’s hard to pass up too, so check out the review and let me know what you guys think!
Players: 2-8 Ages: 8+ (I’d say 6+) Setup Time: <5 min Play Time: 30min-1hr
Production Values: Great quality cardstock, great artwork, but would have liked player pawns to be more solid.
- Simple, Fun. Captures D&D essence of “kill monsters and take their loot”.
- Kid Friendly
- Cheap. You could buy this or a game they used to call scrabble for the same price…
- Can be a little too random, making gameplay drag on after some consecutive bad die rolls.
- Might be too challenging/disappointing for some kids (losing turns, starting over if killed, etc.)
