Announcing DungeonQuest Revised Edition
|DungeonQuest Revised Edition | Published 11 April 2014|
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce DungeonQuest Revised Edition, a fast-paced game of dungeon exploration and looting for one to four players.
In DungeonQuest Revised Edition, you take on the role of a hero who sets out to explore Dragonfire Dungeon. Along the way, you’ll collect loot, evade traps, battle fearsome monsters, and wend your way through the sprawling catacombs that snake underneath the dungeon. If you are fortunate enough to find your way to the treasure chamber at the dungeon’s heart, you may attempt to plunder its riches. The hero who escapes with the most loot wins!
However, there’s more to concern you than just rival heroes. You must be careful not to wake the cruel Kalladra, the dragon who sleeps upon the treasure hoard! When you have looted your fill, you must escape the treacherous, winding maze that makes up the dungeon in order to be victorious.
What’s Different in DungeonQuest Revised Edition?
Players new to DungeonQuest will discover a fast-paced and deadly game of dungeon exploration and looting. For those players familiar with previous editions of the game, we’ve updated and revamped elements of the game to give you an even more dangerous dungeon to explore.
We’ve worked closely with Jakob Bonds, the designer of the classic editions of DungeonQuest to develop this exciting new edition, which delivers a combat system that harkens back to the classic editions of the game, and a Dragonfire Dungeon deadlier than ever before. We’ve also added a new Torchlight variant which allows you create a larger, and more complex dungeon as you explore.
For more detailed information on the differences between DungeonQuest Revised Edition and the Third Edition of the game, please see the game’s description page.
Exploring the Dungeon
Your search for riches begins when you and your rival treasure hunters entering Dragonfire Dungeon from one of the four towers, located in each corner of the game board. Each turn, you may move one space along a pathway, delving further into the dungeon in search of the dragon’s treasure, or you may search the chamber you currently occupy in the hope of uncovering loot.
When you move, you draw a chamber tile and place it on the board to represent your progress into the dungeon. As you explore and move toward the treasure chamber, you’ll encounter secret doors, hidden rooms, and strange tunnels leading to catacombs located deep beneath the dungeon floors. Each time you enter a chamber, you’ll resolve its chamber effect.
No dungeon would be complete without a host of monsters lurking within, and Dragonfire Dungeon is no exception. During your exploration, you’ll need to be prepared to engage in battle with any number of strange and hostile enemies. Taking place over a series of rounds, combat continues until either the hero player escapes or dies, or until the hero player defeats the monster and continues his exploration of the dungeon.
DungeonQuest Revised Edition features a streamlined, card-based combat system. This image gives an example of combat. We’ll take a more in-depth look at combat in DungeonQuest Revised Edition in one of our upcoming previews, including how combat works when playing the solo variant of the game. More information can also be found on the game’s description page.
Heroes who make their way into the treasure chamber in the center of the board may attempt to make off with some of the loot they find within. However, Kalladra the dragon does not take kindly to thieves. Heroes who attempt to steal from treasure chamber risk waking her, and incurring her wrath.
When you enter or begin your turn in the treasure chamber, you may move as usual, or attempt to grab some treasure by drawing a card from the Dragon Deck and resolving it. Most of these cards will allow you to pilfer some of the most precious loot in the dungeon, escaping the dragon’s notice. However, one of these cards will wake the Kalladra, inciting her fiery retribution and dealing you massive amounts of damage. The risk may very well be worth the reward, as the most precious treasure can be found in the dragon’s lair.

DungeonQuest Revised Edition will arrive in the third quarter of 2014. Will you brave the dangers that lie in Dragonfire Dungeon? Or will you leave the wealth within to your rivals?
