Quick look by Moritz Eggert

As often with games by James Ernest and art by Kovalic this is not exactly the next "Puerto Rico", but in the right mood and crowd this can be entertaining in a way, probably more so than the dire "Munchkins". Game play is almost exclusively dominated by luck, and as there is no way to "draw" adventure parties in your particular dungeon, victory point distribution is entirely left up to chance, perhaps the biggest failure of the game, as there could have been a mechanic to remedy that. A little tweaking here and there could have produced an interesting game, as it stands this is not more than an amiable but gamewise weak effort with some funny drawings.
