Dungeon Crawler Card Game


Card & Board Games


So I recently purchased a semi-collectible card game called Dungeon Crawler. I have to ask if anyone else out there has seen or played this game yet? It's fairly new and doesn't have a wide distribution yet but I have heard that it was demoed at GenCon this year and I've met other folks on the Dungeon Crawler forum boards (www.dungeoncrawler.com) so I know there's a few of us out there that are enjoying this game.

Here's why I am loving this game...

For starters, the game is semi-random. You can buy a starter (which is needed to play with) and a box of boosters and get one (two?) of every card in the game - rares included. This is something that I like seeing. It gives me the incentive to pick up a booster box knowing I can get all the cards, but it also makes me still not unhappy to throw a booster or two on there as an impulse buy once in a while either since it is still a nice surprise to see what I get.

Now, here's the REAL reason I'm excited about this game. Solo play...the game can be played competitively or multiplayer as well, but not having to find an opponent is nice since sometimes finding someone to play games with can be kind of hard since a lot of my old gaming buddies have moved on or, like me, have RL responsibilities that limit play time.

Plus the game has a genuine old-school dungeon delve feel to it in my opinion. I'd recommend this game to anyone for sure!

I've only played a half-dozen games so far and I'm hooked!

So, anyone else heard about this game? Or have played it?

Paizo folks, any chance you might carry this game someday? It would be nice to throw a few boosters in whenever I place an order with you folks.

I checked it out at Gen Con - had a quick demo. It looks interesting, but I was a bit concerned that the game play would get stale playing solo pretty quick.

Also, I was under the impression that the game was expandable, but not collectible, i.e. you could buy the starter set, and an expansion set, but that there were no randomized packs of boosters. I could certainly be wrong on this, but that's the impression I left Gen Con with.


I bought this game and played it, and LOVE it. The best thing about it is the solitare option. Now I don't have to wait around for people to come over to play. (and in a small town, that's kind of hard to do)
i love the graphics, i love the websites (yay) and i love the game!

You are correct on both counts.

If you buy the starter and the booster box you'll have the whole set. Once you buy the starter you never need to "expand" your set, but you can do so by either buying booster packs or buying a booster box.

The booster box is seeded. The booster packs inside are randomized (hence the collectible aspect).

I have yet to find the starter stale, we've done countless demos and the combination of the dungeon vs the crawler decks lends the game a kind of "dual" randomization.

I think that the thing that would keep it from getting too stale would be building themed 'dungeons' to play against.

Also, if you had a friend or two you could even build decks for use one on one or exchange them between yourselves for solo play. I would be fun to exchange decks like that since you'd not know what your friend put into it.

Also, when expansions are released I'd assume that we'd get more adventurers, quests and of course new dungeon cards to play against as well.

The "stale" factor in a solo game is always a possibility; however I think this is offset by the number and quality of cards in the initial cardpool and by the promise of heavy support from the company.

You are guaranteed a complete set through the purchase of a single starter and a box of boosters...however that may be too big of an investment for the average player. A single starter is reasonably priced and is enough to keep things interesting while you decide whether or not you wantnto buy new cards. (and if you're primary purpose is to play solo you can buy new cards at your leisure without feeling the pressure to keep up with your tournament scene.

My initial idea is to run a sort of campaign were players can add cards to their decks as they accomplish specified goals...leveling up in a sense. (and of course the dungeons get tougher as you leve up too!)

It would appear our printers were incapable of seeding the booster boxes. The booster boxes are completely randomized, meaning there are several multiples of rares in each booster box. Despite their reassurance that they had gotten the packing "correct" - they did not. For this we apologize to our customers.

The game is still very easy to collect for a CCG, and we hope that our potential customers will still give us a try.

We've recieved an excellent review recently of the game from Drinks and Dragons which we are very happy about.

Booster boxes are now available here on our orders page.

I was going to give this game a chance. There are four of us who would of gotten into the game cause it had some good ideas but really couldnt get past the art of the cards in the demo is that the card art or just somthing online.
We basicly said if a company cant invest in good art then whats to say they can even invest in a 2nd set

Many people have their favourites, but many people are sick of the "same look over and over" and love the refreshing new style - which we feel helps to distinguish cards during game play that much easier.

Which demo would you be refering to? We've only used the real artwork for our demos - so, I'm not sure where that would be confused.

An expansion is already in the works.
