A tale of teamwork and betrayal

The mole ogre howled out as it collapsed into a bloody pile of rent flesh and broken bone. The aging knight bent over, panting heavily, and gave his dwarven peer an approving nod. It had taken great effort between them both to slay the beast, and they had each taken their share of wounds. But in the end their cooperation had paid off and they both knew it. And then their eyes found the treasure chest sitting in the corner of the room.

They looked at each other. They looked back at the treasure… and then the real fight began.

The game where YOU are the final boss!

Dungeon Run is an exciting dash through a dungeon packed with monsters and traps. Each player controls a unique hero capable of great feats, and whose powers and abilities are upgradable and customizable throughout the game. Players can work together to overcome the perils of the dungeon, or they can betray and sabotage each other as they see fit. Because in the final room of the dungeon lurks a powerful boss with the ultimate treasure – a treasure that turns its owner into the most powerful warrior they can become! Slay the boss, steal the treasure, and then run for your life as your friends try to cut you down. In Dungeon Run only one hero can escape with the fabled Summoning Stone. Don’t walk – run!

A new game each time you play

Dungeon Run features a randomly assembled dungeon that changes each time you play, as do the monsters you face and the treasures you find. Eight different heroes each with unique options for customization further add to a wealth of game play options. Choose the vicious Tundra Orc and bash your way through everything that stands in your path. Play as the cunning Grounder Wizard and use your magic to cheat the laws of nature. Select the Guild Dwarf adventurer and lay traps to ensnare your friends. There are many paths to victory in Dungeon Run. Win by working with your friends or against them – just win!

The minis are to scale with Heroscape minis. Thought this might be a good place to note that.

Interesting, bigger than I would have thought.

Looking at them, I was picturing Descent-size.

Hmm, I was actually thinking about going the other way-when we learn how Dungeon Run Characters/Monsters are statted I could use my masses of HS units to further populate my DR boards. 8)

Just to get a rough prediction of how angry my wife will eventually be, is this the sort of game that might some day see expansions? :D

How long does a game take to play (Is it more of a 30 minute quick game or a 2 hour mind bender?)?

I've been wondering if Mr. Bistro's parents didn't plan his name far enough in advance....

Anyway, looks like a fun game to complement Summoner Wars.
