This is a great little game. Mind you I bought it second hand and it is missing a few pieces, but it is still playable as is. It is a bit short, but I really do enjoy it.

Due to the difficulty of the 2nd Edition of Runebound, our current house rule is to play Cave Troll first. For every ten gold you have claimed by the end of the game, you get 1 additional gold added to your starting total for Runebound. That way we aren't spending all our gold on health all the time.

I love this game, pasted on theme and all. I expected a quick dungeon crawl and got a much fuller chess-like game. Great fun!

Wow!! This is the best game I've bought this year. A suprisingly good area control game tied beautifully to a fantasty dungeon setting. And extremely cheap considering the beautiful board and piles of great miniatures.

Brave heroes are not so brave with Cave Troll. No one visits Cave Troll in dungeon. Cave Troll wants to try new things. Send me games at:

One of the best area control games I know. Definitely better than Small World.

Great game. Starts out simple and by the end gets crazily crowded (especially in 4 player games!). The only random factor is the order in which you draw your cards. I have yet to see a game where the random element cost someone the game. Overall very fun and cut throat. Try it out!

I don't play this game enough. Drakon went over better with my game group although I personally like this a touch more. It's not as clever of a design as Drakon but it's a little more thinky, which I like. Tom Jolly is really a great designer.

Looks great and I like the theme. Can be brutal with 2 players - which is a good thing.

Sweet fun! This game is much better than Drakon as it moves fast and doesn't suffer from ending too soon or going on far too long like Drakon does. Very well balanced. This game is a great light & quick game (less than 1 hour).

Simples, rápido e extremamente divertido. O tema se encaixou muito bem ao jogo, embora pudesse ser facilmente trocado para outras coisas, o fato é que para mim ficou bom.

Very fun to play. The player interaction is there. Balance does not seem to be an issue. Plenty of things to do on your turn later in the game. Board is a little hard to "read" and something seems amiss with the artifacts. We usually just hand on to 'em cause there are usually tie breakers.

Read the rules before you buy to make sure it's the sort of game you think it is (i.e., area control; it's not really a dungeon crawl). I knew this going in and greatly enjoy it. The random tile draw adds a fair bit of luck, especially the timing of the scoring rounds, but there are plenty of opportunities for clever play.

I actually prefer the cardboard counters of the first edition to the plastic of the second. However, one nicety of the second edition is the improved timing of the scoring. In the first edition, drawing the Count the Loot counter would cause scoring. In the second edition, each card increments a scoring timer by various amounts. I may try to adapt something similar for first edition.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

Not the best area control game, but certainly the most fun. I like the idea of fantasy characters running around looking for treasure.
