Earlier last week we were supposed to have a miniature wargaming day down at the club, but only me and David showed up and we had incompatible armies. Luckily, I had brought with me some boardgames, among them Dungeon Lords which works well for 2-4 players.

The nice thing about this game is that the "empty spots" are taken by NPC players partially controlled by each human player. So you play with all 4 Dungeon Lords in the bidding phase which helps make the game more dynamic and harder.

David had never played this game before, and I had not played it for a couple of months – but again the makers of this game were smart enough to include "tutorial dungeons" that allows you to learn the battle mechanics which are the main important events at the end of each year in the game.

We were soon up to speed and started playing, David was unfortunate during the first year since he got a raiding party with 2 Thieves which rendered his traps useless. And he did not have enough monsters to kill all adventurers. His entire dungeon including a room was conquered at the end of year one!

This game reminds me of Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2 (on the PC), seems it might have been based off of them.

It is extremely close to Dungeon Keeper in tone and sense of humor.
