Games From the Basement - DungeonQuest

I need a break from all these damn 5e posts, know what I mean? ;)

Anyhow, if memory serves me properly, I picked up DungeonQuest before I picked up Talisman (which makes sense, as we already had 2 or 3 copies of Talisman in the gaming group).

My main memory of DungeonQuest?  The included miniatures, which took very little time to migrate from the game box to the table top for our RPG sessions.

It lists solo play as an option, but I don't recall ever giving solo play a try.  Which is strange, as I gravitated towards solo capable games back in the days before the internet.

This was not one of our most played boardgames, as it lacked the speed and simplicity of Talisman, but it was a fun diversion none the less.  I have the Heroes expansion packed away, somewhere.


  1. Just played this very edition with my daughter a couple of weeks ago. I love the old GW artwork on these games.

  2. I never owned the original and I've just bought the new one and it's seriously messed up :-/
    I've posted a picture of part of the rules in my ramble here: http://adventuresandshopping.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/con-quest-derby-new-rpg-purchases-and.html

    I guess I'll have track down the original and create a hybrid! :)

  3. P.S. Interesting what you say about solo-play. More and more I find myself looking for a solo play option in dungeony board games.

  4. @billiam babble - email me at trubluniteATgmailDOTcom and when I get home on Sunday I'll scan u a copy :)
