Hi

I'm looking for a dungeon crawler game with good exploration totally cooperative. I want one that is good for 2 players, to play with my girlfriend. I want a game simple, not to complex, with good looking miniatures.

Can you give me some suggestions?

Thanks

I don't know of a better one currently in print than Shadows of Brimstone. It's not much of a game, but its a great dungeon crawl. Its also a very deep rabbit hole to fall down. Simpler, but very charming and fun is Mice and Mystics. The D&D Adventure System is perhaps a middle ground between the two, but lacks depths at the campaign level. And then there is Myth, which has a small, but rabid fan base, but has the reputation for basically being incomplete in terms of being an actual game.

If you can wait a bit, the upcoming Sword and Sorcery is very promising; the next edition of Super Dungeon Explorer looks wonderful (doubly so if you cotton to its Chibi aesthetic); and Dungeon Crusade is shaping up to be either ground breaking, or a fiasco.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but Welcome to the Dungeon is a great, quick, love letter-weight, card-driven dungeon crawler.

Super easy to teach, plays in 15 minutes, lots of varying types of people enjoy it.

2 - 4 really well.

I think Mice and Mystics may be just what you are looking for

+ 1 to Glaucio recommendation for the dungeons and dragons adventure system board games.
These are a great place to start as you can learn the basics and move towards the other dungeon crawlers available.
I would only skip these for mice and mystics or super dungeon explore if you want cutesy.

I agree with him it's simple cooperative has some customization and takes an hour to play! Idk why but I HATED mice and Mystics and most of my family didn't care for it either,, but some people love that one?, it's simple to play as well

My family loved Mice & Mystics and we played through the entire campaign.
I'd get the expansions but they are sooo expensive.

Well I think I will look for Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System Board Games, but are the games to hard to beat with only 2 players?

Not at all! In fact I'm playing almost all of my solo games using two characters.

Note, that it's perfectly possible for a player to use multiple characters, e.g. you could both play two characters if you prefer.
