Guild of Dungeoneering
In Guild of Dungeonering, instead of controlling heroes, players build the dungeon around them. Let me explain. During the adventure, players manage cards taken from their deck to place traps, monsters, treasures, and rooms to let the heroes travel the easiest way possible up to the final dungeon. A revolutionary idea for a game that now has the “ultimate edition,” which will add a lot of improvements and content to the basic game. Actually, with a 40% discount.
