Monster's Den

Miniatures to paint, convention event rules to edit, convention events to reserve, Game design ideas, progress in the mathematics of Battletech ... just when I have so many other things to do, I get hooked on a dungeon crawl game.

But it's a GOOD dungeon crawl game.

Character selection is pretty basic. There are about 8 classes to choose from. Characters gain skills and abilities as they advance. Unsurprisingly (but somewhat ironically), characters advance by descending further into the dungeon.

Navigation around the dungeon is simple point-and-click - this level is fully explored.

In an unexplored level, rooms are revealed as you move adjacent to them.

Just like the old D&D games, your party is quickly loaded down with piles of treasure and loot.

Uh oh, monsters to battle.
TO ARMS!

Ouch! (Actually, those guys are getting the worst of it.)

More loot!





This is a simple game that successfully captures the feeling of a D&D dungeon crawl. Good fun, and I'll be playing it again, but maybe AFTER I take care of a few other things that need doing.
