Watch as Matt delves into Dungeon from Wizards of the Coast.

 

Dungeon is not what I was expecting.  I was expecting a game that leaned more towards an RPG feel.  But  after I got over my expectations and played the game for what it is; a board game.  I thoroughly enjoy Dungeon.  The game is simple enough that an eight year old can grasp the concepts While an adult can seek more tactical challenges.

The concept of the game is to gather treasure.  Each player assumes the role of a character; Rogue, Cleric, Fighter, or Wizard.  Each Class has a set amount of treasure they need to gather and then get out of the dungeon.  Combat is pretty simple you roll two dice and compare the roll to the number you need to beat on the monsters card.  The greater the challenge the greater the reward.   The rules suggest appropriate threat levels for  the classes.  To be blunt Rogues are wimps so they fight low level monsters.

All in all the game turned out to be pretty good even though I expected something else.  You can play Dungeon with 4 player  a couple of times in an evening fairly easily.
