Dungeon Saga is a game of high adventure in a fantasy world of heroes and monsters. Players take the roles of the evil overlord who lurks in the dungeon depths, or the brave heroes who venture into the darkness to face them. Each character and minion in the game is represented by a miniature figurine, and the dungeon is represented by a series of floor tiles that can be laid out on your tabletop. Players will need all of their wits about them to fight their way through the dungeon, with a little help from the cards, counters and dice included in the box.
The game can be played with as few as two players or as many as five. One player always takes the part of the dastardly dungeon overlord, and the remainder share the heroes between them. If there is more than one hero player then they must act cooperatively to thwart the overlord or face their doom alone.
Each hero has strengths and weaknesses. The mighty barbarian can slaughter many foes at a time, yet he is lightly armored and vulnerable to strong enemies. The Dwarf, on the other hand is steadier in his fighting, and his thick armour can resist most attacks. The Elf is not as skilled a fighter as either of these, instead preferring to stay at a distance where her finely-honed archery skills can best be used. Finally, there is the wizard. The others may laugh at his lack of fighting skill, yet it is often his magic that carries the day. If the others can keep him alive, that is.
