Ok, so you're playing the Cave with some friends, all is good, you've got the most lakes explored, so those points are yours, you're vying for top player in squeezes. You flip over the next tile...and it's mother flippin cave monsters. Like, from Descent!

And now the game is: get out of the Cave alive. Screw exploring! RUN! You thought you were playing one game, but now it's survival horror!!!

How cool would this be for a mini expansion? Perfect for Hallowe'en right?

I'll admit it, I was really hoping for a The Cave expansion for this year.

I came on to this BGG page hoping someone had already made this variant. The descent is one of my favorite (horror) movies of all time, and The Cave really emulates the tension of cave exploring very well. Someone needs to figure out a way to add slavering subhumans to it.

OK, the original post here really made me laugh, thank you. Your idea would certainly add a whole new element to this game.... and yes I am still laughing out loud as I type

I saw this thread a year ago and was really intrigued and amused by it! So I spent some time working up a "Descent" variant that my wife and I now use every time we play this game. I posted rules in the Files section a few days ago. Would enjoy hearing what you think of it...
