Looking for a new game for game night with friends? Tired of playing never-ending dungeon quests? Then ladies and gentlemen, I have the solution for you. The answer is 5-Minute Dungeon and it launches on Kickstarter on November 1st.
5-Minute Dungeon is a game in which players have 5 minutes to conquer a dungeon. To keep the action moving along, you download the associated game app (available on both iOS and Android) which helps keep time.
In this game, you’ll join forces with your friends to fight your way through five dungeons filled with deadly obstacles and dangerous monsters!
You’ll choose to play as one of ten heroes, each with their own special cards and abilities.
Take on the role of a Hero. Each Hero has their own unique abilities and cards, along with a common pool of resource cards.
Each hero has a special ability that is shown on the bottom the the player mat. As a team, using these abilities at the right time can be the difference between success and defeat.
Each card has some really great artwork.
Most of the time you can defeat a Dungeon Card by matching the symbols on the card.
Sometimes, though, you’ll want to use an action card, like Fireball, which can instantly defeat a Monster.
There are no turns, and anyone can play the cards needed to defeat the Dungeon Card. But be careful, any card played is gone forever, so play smart!
Again, each card features great art and humorous names.
Not surprisingly, there are five dungeon bosses. First you’ll encounter the adorable, but terrifying, Baby Barbarian. But to reach him, your party will first have to deal with the 20 Door Cards in your way, each representing a new challenge you must face. Once you take down the baby, there are still four more bosses to tackle.
I received the game on a Thursday and we had friends over on Saturday. We decided to try the game out and it was an absolute blast. Fun, fast, and funny. The Kickstarter campaign launches on November 1st. I highly recommend backing the campaign and getting a copy of the game for yourself.
