What are the monster tokens for and what does the skull represent on some of the dungeon tiles?

Thanks.

You can use the tokens as an alternate way of drawing monsters. First, the token tells you how many there are; then you draw the cards to know what they are.

Once you play some adventures that utilize them and see how they work, they are TERRIFIC for creating custom scenarios and adventures. You can really do a lot with them.

ha, just opened this up today, and read through the rules and realized that monster tokens weren't even mentioned (unless I've missed it!). though there is a picture of one on page 10.

Figured I'd find my answer here. Good to know!

We have played it twice. And I think its simple enough for my 5 and 7 year old - though the undead theme isn't something I will use with them but hopefully the sequel will be less undead and more typical fantasy.

Having said that its definitely a game of attrition. Am I right in saying that basically you need to either spawn monsters every turn (and risk and encounter) or get hit with an encounter?

That's about the size of it. And quite a few encounters will sincerely mess you up. It's pretty much 'Move Forward or Die!' :D

Definitely playable, with some guidance, by my 7 year old.
