Dungeon Fighter: Die Gruft der griesgrämigen Geister
Dungeon Fighter is a whimsical skill game of a special kind, where you fight your way through a dungeon as life-weary complete losers…er…heroes.The COMPLETELY revised and expanded new edition consists of a total of four independently playable expansions with a special theme and game material. All four boxes offer a complete game each, but you can also take your favorite heroes, weapons and monsters to the next dungeon. (Put put put, here little monster!).
In Dungeon Fighter: Die Gruft der griesgrämigen Geister you have a choice of 6 heroes: The deadly beautiful Lady Mary, the most altruistic of heroes Saul Raysar, the extremely efficient Lianna Lichtbringer, and…. Your heroes have foolhardily (aka rarely stupidly) descended into cursed and certainly collapsing catacombs to fight terrible monsters like Mr. Hypnosis, the Ferryman of Souls, a Troll or Old Bones together. You’ll get rewards for every victory – and nasty scars for every defeat, but let’s not think about that for now. And if you’re lucky, there’ll be a flying dungeon trader around the next bend in the tunnel, selling you armor, weapons and fashionable heroic knickknacks for a few paltry gold coins. Because, of course, you’ll have to arm yourself to face the dam-dam-dam-dam…boss in the scariest of all dungeons.
Here’s how these gruesome battles work: Whoever attacks rolls a die on the target. Yes, you read correctly, here is THROWING and NOT THROWING. Depending on where the die comes to rest, the hero does the indicated damage. And on top of that, the sides of the dice can trigger super cool special effects. So far so simple, but some monsters can only be hit at their weak point, and for that you’ll have to pull off a very special maneuver, like throwing the attack cube while your hand is closer to the ground than the tabletop, throwing it with your hands folded, or bumping it with your nose. Soon you’ll be skilled enough to use additional weapons that cause greater damage, but also require daring maneuvers.
And once you have mastered this dungeon, there are three others that you can discover.
