DungeonQuest, the latest board game set in the rich fantasy world of Terrinoth, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! This classic game of dungeon exploration has a vast and loyal following due to its compelling theme, vast replayability, and brutal challenges. With the spirit of its predecessor in mind, the new edition of DungeonQuest preserves all of this while incorporating the best elements of the classic game’s expansions and streamlining its rules.
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...
Only the bravest of heroes dare to enter Dragonfire Dungeon, and of those heroes only a few have returned. Yet those who have returned are remembered forever, for they have faced the dragon’s challenge and emerged victorious; and mere survival is counted a victory when facing the dangers of Dragonfire Dungeon.
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 close to death. But they return as heroes nonetheless.
Check out our detailed previews to learn more, then head to your local retailer. The dragon’s challenge awaits...
DungeonQuest is a classic board game of dungeon exploration. 1-4 players take on the roles of heroes on a quest to gather the most loot from Dragonfire Dungeon before the doors close and seal their fates. Dare you face the dragon’s challenge?
I got a copy of the Dungeon Quest game here in Maydena, Tasmania from a distributer on mainland Australia today... it is a brilliant concept to see how much fun 1-4 player game can be. I don't my family to want to play this board game with me, so I am more interested in the solo aspect of the game, but the easy to understand game mechanics may be a hook for them to maybe join in sometime when they notice me out in the shed playing this very fine looking game... I am hopeful. Moopah on Facebook :)
The game seems to be surprisingly similar to the original. I wonder why they didn't take the opportunity to change some of the not so brilliant aspects of the game, but I loved the original so I expect I will pick this one up. And just so you all know: The original is the Swedish game "Drakborgen", which indeed had an expansion called "Drakborgen II". Games Workshop made a version of the Swedish original and now FFG has its shiny new one out. I am not aware of any other versions.... apart from the one I made myself in my teenage years for private use. My version makes the official one look like a walk in park. My friends called it Sadist Castle. Due to a bug in the rules one player managed to kill the dragon and take over the hole dungeon. That's a hard record to beat. Anyway, it will be nice to be able to revisit this charming dungeon of ultimate peril. Thanks FFG for resurrecting the favorite game of my youth!
Yessss, I had a lucky moment two nights ago and found the Gigantic Diamond. Awesome but I didn`t survive, I died two rooms before the exit. Lovely Swinging Blade, didn`t hurt a lot, I was just dead...Good game...
Finaly, let the dungeon adventure beggin! Yes, can't wait to pick up my copy of it. :)
wow Zwobot...every comment is negative that I have read on here...
i own both the classic and FFG's version, imo both are good. But FFGs new version gives a few more features + a better more deeply battle system (note: i'm usualy a battle card hater, and i'm still are, but that's how the classic was anyway).
Also, we will see expansions for it if sells are high, i'm sure i won't see any expansions for the classic version :p
Played the game 8 times and have to say: FFG made a classic not so good but fun game worse. Will take the chars for Runewars out of it and then sell it. I am very disappointed.
Purchased! I can't wait for it to show up. Looking like lots of deadly fun.
Its a wonderful game.... My record is 861 gold pieces and my life.
It`s great and very funny. I bought it last week and played it a few times with friends. The rules are very comfortable and easy to learn. The combat system needs to getting used to but then it works very well. Some miscellaneous situations can happen relativ often, but that brings a scale you cannot assess. My first impression is very good, FFG more of that...
Played it at ACD Games Day and loved it. Make sure you get the boardgame game sleeves for it right away too.
