Super Dungeon Explore

Today I managed to break my usual pattern and get some gaming in. I got together at the local games store with my friend John and a few other guys to play a game. Unfortunately we were all a little pressed for time due to work/family and we couldn't really enjoy it as much as we might like.

We played a board game called Super Dungeon Explore. It was a very simple and extremely awesome game. The aim of it is to loot a dungeon and destroy the monster spawning points inside. Players take the roles of fairly standard heroes (we had a mage, a druid, a ranger and a barbarian) and one player takes the role of the dungeon.

The game had a great anime aesthetic that worked really well. The figures themselves were awesome and I am thinking I might try to pick up a copy to paint and play. I might even see if I can tax my finances sufficiently to back the kick-starter for the upcoming expansion pack.

This was my first game but it was super simple to pick up. This was not the dungeon masters first game however and we all died horribly after two hours of great fun and utter hilarity.

The stand out line of the day had to be: "Be a man and sparkle burst that shit!"

I apologize that the photos are so bad, all I had to hand was my old ipod touch.
