How to Host a Dungeon

Card & Board Games

Just got this and tried it for the first time Friday night. Anybody else have any experiences with it?

Haven't heard of it, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. Can you answer a few questions? How is the solo game aspect of this, vs. the cool fun way to create a dungeon for an RPG aspect of it? It is a good game on it's own, or is it more of a glorified random dungeon generator?

It's hard to sort out the extent to which it is a game and the extent to which it is a dungeon generator, or more precisely, a historical dungeon generator. I'd say if you don't enjoy making up dungeons, including their background and development, then you won't enjoy the game. I enjoyed it, and you can download a simplified version to play before you buy the whole thing.

I played through the Primordial Age, the Great Disaster, and most of the way through the Age of Monsters. It was taking a little longer to play than I anticipated, but I was learning most of the rules as I played and I made the mistake of setting up in an uncomfortable location.

The rules are a little more scattered than I could wish, but I suppose I will read through the entire document before I play again and highlight and tag it for ease of play. It's also the kind of game that you can easily add rules to or use game/world knowledge to make rulings without making every outcome as random or as automatic as RAW would have it. (Green Slime can kill Magma Spirits? No way.)
