Wizards of the Coast will release an updated version of the classic fantasy board game Dungeon! with new box art to appeal to a new generation of family gamers on June 17th.
The new box is designed to appeal to long time Dungeons & Dragons players, as well as reach a new audience of younger players. The game has gone through several incarnations since it was first released in 1975, and most recently updated in 2012 (see "Classic 'Dungeon' Board Game Returns"), but the basic game play remains the same. Players take the role of Fighter, Rogue, Cleric, or Wizard, and explore a multi-level dungeon to find treasure. The treasure is guarded by progressively harder monsters the deeper players venture. The goal is to collect enough treasure and be the first to escape the dungeon.
The box contains 8 Hero standees (2 each of Rogues, Clerics, Fighters and Wizards), 165 cards (monster, treasure and spell), 139 tokens (number, lose a turn, defeated, and magic sword), 2 6-sided dice, a game board, and a rule sheet. The game is for 1- 8 players, ages 8 and up. MSRP is $19.99.
