Just played my first game, and wondering if I did something wrong...
Looking through threads here, people keep mentioning filling in all the previous dungeon levels again after descending. However, I can't find any mention in the rulebook that dice spent on a dungeon level return to the general pool when descending.
If I fill the combat box of the dungeon card on Floor 1, am I safe from that consequence for the rest of the game (making filling those a priority even if they don't have a shield), or does it get reset when I descend? Or is it even worse and it resets after every encounter?
the challenge boxes on the dungeon card reset every encounter. They are essentially the same as if they were on the monster or trap card. These stack on top of each other as you descend. So on level 2 you have to fill the challenge boxes on lvl 1 AND lvl 2, every encouner. Likewise the effects listed in the middle stack. This continues until you reach the boss.
