Very interesting and funny solo game. The only bad things in my opinion are the too much effort to print it and cut it and the graphics on some cards...welll I really don't like some of the cards that look like a bit too much computer colored. I would have liked more some nice black and white comics style hand drawings.

What I have read I have enjoyed it. I am thinking it will be fun when I get a chance to work into my game.

Absolutely fantastic. I have looked for a long time for a game like this. My only hope is that there will be many more expansions!

Dungeon Crawl is a very easy to learn, set up and play fantasy boardgame.

The rulebook is a beautiful full color book with great artwork. There are spell cards, monster cards, trap cards, equipment cards, treasure cards, a character sheet, tiles for rooms and corridors and finale cards with the boss monsters. All the cards have very good artwork.

The rules are clear and very easy to learn. You can play the game solitaire or as a death match with your friends or cooperatively. There are no special rules for cooperative play, but it is easy to figure out how to do it. You can explore the dungeon with your companions and battle the same monster, two identical monsters or fall in the same trap. Maybe in the expansions there will be some rules for that.

you will need six sided dice for the skill checks and the combat. The resolution is very easy as it should be in a boardgame.

There are three classes and a character experience table.

It is very atmospheric fantasy game. I really like to play it and I can play it whenever I want, because it is easy to set up and the game lasts about 20 - 30 minutes for one player.

The designer will publish a forest, a swamp and a city expansion soon, but I hope to see this product in a print version, so I won't need to print and cut all these components.

If you like dungeon crawling, this is the game for you. Now you can live in a very rich fantasy world and to have many heroic adventures in it.

Contains two booklets: Rules book (25 pages) and game cards book (57 pages)

At twenty-five pages, this rulebook is the definition of a quick-play RPG. The rules are easy to understand and well presented. The game cards are of good quality. Think of this game as a slightly more involved version of solitaire, and you won't go too far wrong.

There is no experience or level advancement and the adventures are randomly generated. There's no way to spoil the plotline by reading ahead or looking online for cheat codes, either.

Likes: 1) simple to learn. 2) well designed. 3) innovative concept. 4) The rules say it is a single player game, but there is a rules option for a three-player 'death match' mode.

Dislikes: 1) The game cards must be printed out in color, because the game is color-coded. 2) You're going to have to go find some CCG card covers somewhere. 3) The author doesn't know what "spell check" is for. (Here's a hint when trying to spell the word "Cieling"-- I before E except after C.) This game is from England, so some words will be spelled differently than you are probably used to seeing them. 4) The 25-page rulebook is presented on paper which has a backround and border, which definitely is NOT printer friendly.

Overall Opinion: Buy this game if you want a good way to kill some time on a lazy summer afternoon. It's fun, and not very mentally taxing. (That's a good thing) It won't replace your regular game system, but I bet you'll play this game more often than you think.
