For those of you that have played both of these games, what is your opinion of them when compared to one another?

having just re-designed citadel of blood, i looked into this question because i had thought about re-designing death maze as well (since a lot of the icons/chits/characters overlap). from what i gather citadel of blood is the stronger game.

citadel of blood is a better thought out game and more robust in terms of what you encounter combat and treasure-wise. i think the rule book is better written as well

Citadel is the second itertation of Death MAze in almost every respect. Basically the second edition.

More Characters.
More Spells.
More Treasure.
More Special Rooms.
Different set of Monsters.

Citadel drops the Spice item table, so no more Cannabis for your heroes.

Better ruleset.


Not saying DeathMaze isn't fun, but you should start there and move on to Citadel and not the other way around if you are interested in playing both.

And thess games are super easy to print and play, being a sheet of counters and a rulebook each.
