Description Edit | History

First German edition.

The German edition used other box art, but retained Jepsson's art on the cards, but added a varied colouring of the card backs, varying from blue to red, whereas the original had only black images on the card backs.

  • The room tiles seem to have been completely redrawn, at least part of them. According to pictures here on the Geek, they are signifigantly lighter in colour than the original, and some have different art (the divided chamber, for example, that in the Swedish version is divided by a wall, is here divided by a chasm, like the Games Workshop edition)
  • The treasure chamber was pre-printed on the game board instead of being a separate double-tile.
  • This version also came with the plastic minis that Games Workshop used for the English edition (confimation needed). The character art and names are also from the Games Workshop version.

Generally, it seems as though this was released after the Games Workshop edition, but the Germans chose to keep the Swedish art.
