You and your fellow wizards have a bad habit of pilfering each other’s dungeons. In this draft-and-write game, you’ll fortify your dungeon’s lairs with defenders, then crawl an opponent’s dungeon. The game ends for everyone when a player captures all their opponent’s lairs, or it ends for you when you run out of cards. Score victory points for fortifying and capturing lairs. If you finish with the most points, you become the Dungeon Master!

The card-drafting tension of 7 Wonders meets the grid-coverage puzzle of Tapestry. But instead of building a civilization, you fortify a dungeon — and then invade your opponent’s!


Kickstarter backers will tentatively get free print-and-play expansion content, such as additional Dungeons, Characters, Creatures and engine-builders because the campaign reached its $250, $500 and $100500 stretch goals. Components will ultimately include:

  • 12 unique dungeon sheets
  • 12 unique character sheets
  • 1 rulebook
  • 36 creature cards
  • TBD cards for upgraded spells
