Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
http://www.summonerwars.com/DR_box_figs.jpg


You can pre-order now from the plaid hat games store: http://www.plaidhatgames.com/store.html

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!

Like the look of the minis.

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

Tricky!!! Sooo...when is the C3V going to make customs for them? Before or after it releases ;)

Cool, an excuse to order more than one copy. :)

Interesting, bigger than I would have thought.

Looking at them, I was picturing Descent-size.

That. Looks. AWESOME! :woot:

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?)?

Congratulations to our own MrBistro.

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
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.

I've loved the original, and can't wait to see the new!

Fantastic, Colby. I hope you and Mr. Bistro make a million bucks.

Each.

Looks like something we might really enjoy in my house, where fantasy is good but coop is frowned upon.

Looks like it is very awesome I like the Dungeon Crawl Games. But what worrys me the most is the price. I would like to know the price of it. It looks like it would be around
25-40$

ZBeeblebrox March 27th, 2011 11:29 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Awesome...

Another PHG Home Run!!! Can't wait until I get one.

I remember the original, a ton of fun. I can't wait to see this one, I'll definitly order!

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Wow! That looks great! Who did you get to sculpt the minis?

Can't wait to see more. Any idea on when it will be ready to ship?

Neat! Love the references to SW units and HS scale minis. :cool:

It's great to finally see this in completion. The figures look great. I'll have to buy this with the Summoner Wars Master Set and new expansions.

I bet all parties involved are greatly excited. Best of luck in its success!

Greyelephant March 28th, 2011 06:24 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Customizable board like Castle Ravenloft?

That will be great! This one is HIGH up on my radar! Keep up the great work Mr. Plaid Hat.

The price is very point on! Castle Ravenloft and Wrath of Ash both cost me $45 a pop, so this is right in my price range.



Are we going to see this at Gencon? Please say yes!

I like the way you think. Once I've got that million, I'll buy you a drink!

It's only co-op until you're ready to stab your friends in the back. And the legs. And head.

Hey, Heroscape just got canceled so you are just replacing one with another. Seems only fair. ;)

Awesome work guys! Congrats all around. I love the tie-in to Summoner Wars!

Huh. The news thread over at BGG looks like a Heroscapers reunion for the Class of 2007.

Mr. Bistro, you do not live that far from me, I will take that drink from you, sir.

EternalThanos86 March 29th, 2011 01:02 AM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Great news.

Having just recently gotten into the dungeon crawl genre, I'm excited to try it out!

What will make this game different from others like it?

Taeblewalker March 29th, 2011 01:42 AM

Sounds like a winner!

You have me sold. The release is scheduled for my B-day month. And, you used the name of one of my maps in your description.

Hey guys - we just posted an interview with truth about Dungeon Run on menwithdice.com - check it out. There are some cool nuggets of info in there.

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Number 1 on the BGG Hotness. The figures look great. I was disappointed by the D&D dungeon crawl games (Ravenloft et al). Although I love Claustrophobia, this could fill the multiplayer dungeon gap in my collection. I never played the P&P version but I will be keeping an eye on this one. Congratulations to Mr. Bistro and everyone at Plaid Hat. (Colby, if you haven't already been swamped with game design submissions by Heroscapers' members, you will be now!)

Great stuff Wookie!

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Awesome! And DMG figures! That Gladiator Hulk he did a while back was one of the greatest tiny things I've ever seen. Can't wait to check these figures out up close.

Renquist April 4th, 2011 09:53 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
HS scale? Interesting. I would have thought you scaled smaller to make it more compatible with other products.

mad_wookiee April 13th, 2011 12:45 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
An interview with Mr. Bistro is up at menwithdice.com - check it out. There are some great tidbits in there. I have to say that I'm really stoked for this one.

Yodaking April 13th, 2011 12:54 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Those are some pretty nice looking figures.

Awesome job. Very cool. I'm certainly looking forward to this as well. I love to play Diplomacy when I can, it sounds like a lot of that player interaction with shifting alliances and backstabbing can come into play, which in my mind is just ingenious.

worldsenemy May 4th, 2011 01:22 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Just found this thread. Game looks pretty cool. Will this be available at Gencon? Anyone know?

lefton4ya May 4th, 2011 02:05 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Or how about Origins? Since Truth will be there, maybe we can play a late night game in the hotel with him on a prototype version. I never really did any roll playing game other than Mafia/Werefolf (Curse of Ne-Gok-Sa lite) and certainly not a dungeon run game, but i'd be willing to try.

Lord Pyre May 4th, 2011 03:42 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Woah, I missed this until now! Dungeon runs and backstabbing buddies? Sounds like my kind of game!!!! :D

AnubianWolf88 May 5th, 2011 10:36 AM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Battleship Galaxies, Dungeon Run, and more Summoner Wars on the way?

I need another job, cuz I must have the goodness.

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
I'm excited for this as well. Probably gonna have to have a release party here for it. Plaid Hat is scoring again. Now PHG is doing a board game with miniatures. What could be next?

I really enjoy Cutthroat Caverns. This seems like a very similar style of game only better. CC is only cards and no actual exploring. I like having a map and miniatures. I think this is like Descent mixed with CC with the best of both worlds. With Colby and team being such great game designers and knowing the value of play testing I will actually be surprised if it is not as good as I expect. I think it could become a new 2nd favorite game!

I want this game so bad. I was almost considering one of the DnD Dungeon games, but this one is leading both of them by a long shot.

yagyuninja May 9th, 2011 02:07 PM

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
I like the looks of this MUCH more than the DnD games.

Re: Dungeon Run - Coming Soon from Plaid Hat Games
 
Truth, this game looks great. I may just have to add a third dungeon crawl game to my collection . . . .
