Announcing DungeonQuest, the classic game of perilous dungeon exploration
|DungeonQuest | Published 21 April 2010|
As the sun broke over the jagged horizon, the great stone doors began to rumble. Two robed figures watched in silent anticipation from behind the ruins of the walls that once surrounded Dragonfire Dungeon. The magical aura that surrounded the doors intensified when the sun’s early light activated its enchantment. Rocks fell as the doors began to open, revealing utter blackness beyond its threshold. One of the figures stepped toward the awaiting dungeon. “I’m coming with you, Brother Gherinn.” He was restrained by the other, also wearing the vestaments of Kellos.
“No, Jacob,” Brother Gherinn said, his scarred face hidden behind a golden mask. “I must do this on my own. Kellos will not free me from my dark past unless I prove myself.” He stepped forward toward the doors. “My salvation lies below...”
Jacob watched as his mentor disappeared through the massive doors. As the morning wind blew his hood back, he thought he heard the sound of distant laughter.
Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce DungeonQuest, the newest board game set in the rich fantasy world of Terrinoth! This classic game of dungeon exploration has a vast and loyal following due to its compelling theme, vast replayability, and brutal challenges. With the spirit of its predecessor in mind, the new edition of DungeonQuest preserves all of this while incorporating the best elements of the classic game’s expansions and streamlining its rules.
In DungeonQuest, players must guide their heroes through the twisting halls of Dragonfire Dungeon in pursuit of unimaginable riches hoarded by the Dragonlord Kalladra. Whoever can amass the most wealth and make it out of the dungeon before the closing of the doors seals their doom will emerge victorious. However, merely surviving the harrowing dungeon is a feat all its own...
Only the bravest of heroes dare to enter Dragonfire Dungeon, and of those heroes only a few have returned. Yet those who have returned are remembered forever, for they have faced the dragon’s challenge and emerged victorious; and mere survival is counted a victory when facing the dangers of Dragonfire Dungeon.
Legends say that the doors of Dragonfire Dungeon open every sunrise, welcoming brave adventurers into its depths. But once the sun sets, the doors close and seal the fates of those who lingered too long. Only a few have ever returned from Dragonfire Dungeon, and those who have usually come back close to death. But they return as heroes nonetheless.
Check out our description page for more details. In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring this product in greater detail with a series of previews, so check back frequently! This summer, the dragon’s challenge awaits...
DungeonQuest is a classic board game of dungeon exploration. 1-4 players take on the roles of heroes on a quest to gather the most loot from Dragonfire Dungeon before the doors close and seal their fates. Dare you face the dragon’s challenge?
There were minis in the GW version of Dungeonquest. There were four plastic minis in the original game, and there was an expansion pack that came with a whole bunch of pewter minis (all of which I had painted). I am thinking of getting this game when it comes out, but I would prefer to see a copy of it before buying.
How much will it differ from the english games workshop version? I have that and the expansions and just.. well.. :)
OOOH YESS cant wait for this to come out, i have been holding my breath ever since i read this news.... and..i am turning purple atm sooo :D
yeah icant wait to see this game, hopefully they'll be some heroes to paint
Ohh, man. I'm so going to get beaten by the wife for buying another dungeon crawling game. But... I'll make the sacrifice.
I own the original game and I'm eager to see what this new version has in store for us!
WOW, this is fantastic. One of my all time top 10 games. I know I should not get so excited but I must admit I came too clsoe to wetting myself when I saw this. Thanks FFG, now I really will have an empty wallet.
Yesssss i dare,
Bring on that bloody dungeon
GW had minis?
Guess I forgot. That shows how long ago it was that I played. For some reason I thought there were little cardboard bits.
Don't mind me, then.
Great news. Loved the old GW version and still play that every now and then. I've been wondering/hoping for ages whether FFG would run with this one.
The original (Swedish) version was (is) a great game. Ithad grat characters (especially with the expansion), who didn't love to play as Yubara Tori Yima. If FFG can up the components and maintain the character of the original game (don't streamline the rules too much) this will be a winne.
