Dungeon Run

Dungeon Run doesn’t even attempt to take itself seriously; even the FAQ and easy-to-read rulebook is funny. If anything, it could be described as Dungeonquest Plus, because at the beginning of the game, your party of ignoble adventurers are mostly working together, but only as an alliance of convenience.

I’m not going to belabour many of the details of gameplay, since I covered that ground with Wrath of Ashardalon and Castle Ravenloft reviews.
