The adventurers meet in a tavern. They set out for adventure. They go underground to fight Evil. You are that Evil. You are the Dungeon Lord.
This is a game for 2 to 4 aspiring Dungeon Lords. You dig tunnels, mine gold, hire monsters, set traps, and run a proper dungeon. Competition for resources is stiff, and sometimes you have to be a little bit Evil to get what you want. Evil Dungeon Lords attract stronger adventurers. Twice during each game, these adventurers set out to conquer your dungeon. But your monsters and traps can stop them, if you are clever enough. Score points for how well you construct and defend your dungeon. Compete for prestigious titles. Prove you have what it takes to be a Dungeon Lord!
This edition also includes the Festival Season expansion, with more monsters, rooms, and traps for your dungeon, new spells, new paladins, and bards. Special actions enhance the variety of the original game. You now have the chance to acquire pets. And if you still don't have everything you need at the end of the year, you can pick up something extra at the Festival!
