I'm going to vote for Petz on this. I think they're both perfectly replayable - they have quite a bit of randomness in what's available to buy and which heroes you have to fight/customers you want to sell to if that's important to you. Petz is definitely the funnier, and it's a bit less complicated.

I like randomness, I think that makes a game more replayable. With a bit of randomness each game is different from other

We do not enjoy Dungeon LORDS 2p. It is a 4p game scaled by using dummy players.

Dungeon PETZ is brilliant 2p. There is a dummy player mechanism, but it's done extremely well and you don't really consider it a dummy player. It just changes the options available each round.

Its average rating is actually higher - 7.72 v 7.60. The lower rank comes from fewer people having voted.

I own both games but my choice is firmly Dungeon Petz
- Plays 2-4 players well : Dungeon Lords only 4player
- Comedy value of poo as a need
- the Petz are good characters and amusing shows you have to put on.
- No "Training" Phase each time playing with someone new.

Dungeon Lords is a LOT more complex than Dungeon Petz. I enjoy playing Petz more. But I already own Lords and don't know if Petz is really worth buying too. Not that the games are similar (they only have a similar theme), but they are kinda pricy.

The biggest thing is how many players are you playing with? If 2, 3 or 4 seem to be your numbers, go with Dungeon Petz. If you regularly get 4 players together go with Dungeon Lords. Personally I prefer Dungeon Lords but getting exactly 4 players together is hard for me. Dungeon Petz wins in that category as the dummy players are extremely easy to control.

I feel like both are roughly the same complexity but I believe Dungeon Lords is the one that's a bit heavier than Dungeon Petz.

While I agree the Dungeonlords is best with 4, it still plays pretty darn well with 3. I have never tried it with 2, and do not plan to do so as I do not think it would play well and I have a lot of great 2 player games.

That said, I think Lords has a lot more replay value than Petz and is a more challenging game besides.

As for the humor, both games have plenty of it and I wouldn't say one is funnier than the other. In Dungeonlords, you have to be able to laugh at yourself though, as you watch your carefully made plans laid to waste.
