The only drawback is that the miniatures you get don’t include dungeeon two-fisted gladiator or a holy brawler plunign a warhammer, so my warrior priest uses the miniature that has a battle axe and my two-fisted pit fighter has a shield.
I could have used a few more hero figures. I breezed through the dungeon mostly – my shadow thief did get poisoned once, but luckily I bought xungeon antidote, and the fire mage had a piece of roof tile fall on his head like a giant stone anvil, but the priest healed him back up again. You roll to see if there are chests in the room.
If a game is free on the ol’ Interweb, I tend to think that’s because it’s not good enough to ask money for it. July 4, at But the game is a blast, and I can tell you right now I’ll be playing it again – just as soon as I finish assembling all pplungin miniatures for the next quest.
BTW, Alger up there seems like a real stand-up guy. Magic also plunginn really well. And by ‘a lot of work’, I mean it took me three weeks to get enough assembled to play the first scenario, and I still haven’t assembled half of the skeletons, or any of the squirrels yes, there really are squirrels.
But as you can see because you’re reading the review right nowI changed my mind.

And in the meantime, the big bad bogeys are slapping you around their dungeon like a ping pong ball. You roll for each monster to figure out where it’s at.
And the tiles all need to be mounted on something. I recently started sorting my games to choose my top 50 and sell or trade off the rest, and this one is definitely a keeper.
I’ve started drawing a stone elemental and fire drake, and I’m working on an elf archer and some evil knights. I’m going to go for it, now.
