Play a tactical dungeon tournament board game adventure, and not have to clean it up afterwards. There really is nothing quite like The Living Dungeon.
Up to 9 players can take part in a battle of wits, luck, and skulduggery. Survive other adventurers, monsters, and the dungeon itself through combat, agility or dungeon manipulation. Only the strongest, fastest and smartest survive.
Each player has only 5 actions per turn. They then have only 2 fretful minutes to decide what to do with those 5 actions. Panic will set in. The possibilities and threats will become overwhelming. Your mind will freeze up! Your time is running out for you to complete your objective, but one wrong move could be fatal! There are just so many ways to die in The Living Dungeon.
The Living Dungeon shares many things in common with board and miniatures games of this style, you roll dice that will have different colors showing you what you can do on your turn while a dungeon master AI can also roll dice to spawn more enemies or effect parts of the board, what makes things a bit different is that the pieces of the board are not connected and each individual one can be turned or flipped if you have the right action, either giving you a way to move or blocking off paths. Rolling five dice will give you combat dice, movement dice, dice allowing you to effect the board, and ones that combine multiple aspects. The dice system does lead to there being quite a bit of luck involved which can prevent you from being able to do what you need to do for a number of turns, possibly making you restart one of the single player levels for what should have been an easy win, if that's something that bothers you you might not like the game. The graphics are somewhat poor or just shows the game's miniatures which also don't look that interesting. The game offers a fairly long campaign, the story isn't that interesting and the voice acting is quite poor but if you like board games the gameplay is enjoyable enough, local and online multiplayer have also been added to the game.
