Hello.

The rules say: "dungeon run is a 1-6 players", and the game setup say: "shuffle the standard dungeon tiles and place 4 per player ...", but the game only brings 16 standard dungeon tiles (max. 4 players). I missing tiles? Or 5 and 6 players play with the same setup for 4 players.

The last section of the rulebook, just after the Solitaire rules is the section for 5 to 6 players. It says that there are not enough tiles to do the basic setup as for a 4 player game. You just use all (26, both standard and special ) of the tiles.

I had a 5 player game the other night, and it worked out just fine with all tiles. The game did not fall short in any way.

Yeah, for me 3-6 players is good. I don't really like the two player game, but have not tried the single player.

I think the wording of the "5-6 Player" section in the rulebook did a disservice to the game by making it sound like it doesn't play well with these numbers. Instead of saying, "Dungeon Run can be played with 5-6 players, though there will not be enough dungeon tiles to meet the requirements in the setup rules" it should have simply said, "Here are the setup rules for 5-6 players."

The game plays just fine with 5-6 players, though it will be a longer game since it has more players, of course. Even if there were enough tiles to meet the normal setup requirements, I would recommend using a reduced tile set with that many players to help mitigate the longer playtime.

I concur that the game plays fine with 6 players. Having more tiles would have really taken the playtime to an unacceptable level.
