Which dungeon crawler or similar like game have a very short setup and tear down time ? After getting Memoir 44 i've learned a lesson, the game is fun but the setup time seems to take so much effort and time

Gears of Wars seems like it does ?

Anything else ?

Dungeoneer: Tomb of the Lich Lord or the other dungeoneer games are quick to set up and tear down.

Hoo boy. Tall order.

Most dungeon crawlers are built on the bedrock principle of "look at all this crap!"

If I had to give you a name, I think that Heroquest might be a good one.

You add only the board elements that the heroes can see, so setup is gradual.

Also, HQ just isn't as cumbersome as many other crawlers.

Maybe consider the D&D Ravenloft and Ashardalon games for gradual setup but there is great dispute over whether they give the "dungeon crawler" experience.

I think they do, but I'm just some guy.

Definitely Claustrophobia. Sets up in about 3 or 4 minutes and is amazing.

What he said. All you have is a few cards to deal with, rather than multiple decks, tiles (which typically have to be ordered and/or shuffled), markers/chits to be distributed, etc for the D&D series (Ravenloft, Ashardalon, and Drizzt). Those are great games and I enjoy them (and asume I will Drizzt), but quick to set up they ain't.
