So I need to get him in position to deal poungin some pain, and then get my warrior priest up there to block for him so that the monsters don’t rip out his spleen. I’ve started drawing a stone elemental and fire drake, and I’m working on an elf archer and some evil knights. This is because I played it solo.
You’ll have to use a little tactical planning to maximize your ability to kill the monsters in a hurry, because while my pit fighter is one rungeon, weapon swinging, mean motor scooter, he’s a target waiting to happen. I looked at the rules, and asked around, and then dungeonn that a friend of mine was one of the testers.
Magic also works really well. Posted by Matt Drake at 8: And that’s awesome, because it can be a tough sell to persuade a room full of buddies to quit playing with their pre-painted plastic and fold-out battle mats and try a game whose rules I currently store in a three-ring binder.

And in the meantime, the big bad bogeys are slapping you around their dungeon like a ping pong ball.
Who has time for that?
But since the defenders only have to tie you, they can get by with fewer dice, so it’s sometimes a little tricky to make sure you drop the right guys before the other ones start carving on you like a chainsaw ice sculpture.
I wanted to see if this game was going to be worth the time and toner investment. And there are lots of spells to choose from though I would have liked a few more.
Now, a word of warning to those who don’t like dice – just about everything in Dungeon Plungin’ is predicated on a die roll. You can do that. You can play with up to four people, but since dungeon creation is random and monsters are ruled by laws that determine how they react to you, you don’t actually need a referee or bad guy player or dungeon dude or whatever else – you can do it all by yourself. There’s no way Dungeon Plungin’ is the only free game that’s fungeon much fun. This is a lot of work.
Once I built the tiles and miniatures to play, I had to make characters. It might not take you three weeks to put together this set.
I’m going to go for it, now. All that rolling means that your opponents might all be scattered across the room, or they might be clustered right by the door. You roll to see if there are chests in the room. I have a job, and a family, and a fairly busy company on the side, and I write this site, and I pick up freelance work now and then, and on plunginn, I even like to sleep a little. But the game is a blast, and I can tell you right now I’ll be playing it again – just as soon as I finish assembling all the miniatures for the next quest.

There are goblins, orcs, skeletons, zombies, wraiths, demons, dire bunnies and flying monkeys. I may have to reconsider my stance on free games, to be honest.
So after I reviewed Warhammer Quest and a reader asked me to review Dungeon Plungin’, my first gut reaction was a big fat, ‘oh, hell no. I made a warrior priest, a shadow thief, a fire mage and a pit fighter in about 45 minutes, and they’re each more-or-less thematic – the warrior priest can heal and swing a sledge hammer, the shadow thief has spells that let him detect traps, the pit fighter swings two weapons, and the fire dungekn You pluhgin to see how many monsters there are.
Not me, I’ll tell you that.

Newer Post Older Post Home. You roll for each monster to figure out where it’s at. Yeah, you get it for free – but then you have to print it, glue it together, mount it, and otherwise spend countless hours on it just so you can get out of paying for a game.
The only drawback is that the miniatures you get don’t include a two-fisted gladiator or a holy brawler with a warhammer, so my warrior priest uses the miniature that has a battle axe and my two-fisted pit fighter has a shield. The rules aren’t even laid out that well – it just looks like they were built in Microsoft Word.

Neat, fun art Solid rules that let players apply some basic tactics and effective teamwork Easy and flexible character creation Effective combat rules Free! You roll to see what’s beyond the door.
