Too bad this set is out of print, because I'm sure after reading this review you'll want to run out and buy a copy or two.

I was a little surprised by the review, so I went searching for other reviews.

Boardgamegeek gives it a 6.5/10

Thoughthammer gives it 4/5 stars

Maybe Robin Ashe got up on the wrong side of the bed, or someone kicked the dog.

If they reprint this one, or the Haunted woods, i'm buying copies.

I think Robin Ashe wanted an RPG, opened the box to find a card game inside and got upset. :P

I was quite entertained by it really. The quality of the review speaks volumes.

You need to read the comments flowing from his review as well

lol- I missed the sarcasm. Well, the only thing I can say is that we fans need to drown out the naysayers with our own reviews.

Whenever an author comments on a review of his product, he has to be very very careful. I've learned my lesson in the past. While I don't think Dungeoneer is the greatest game ever made, I do think it is a bit better than "pretty pathetic".
Making a Dungeoneer set is hard work; the multiple sequels have been made due to demand, not because I'm a masochist.
