Hello all. I was recently reviewing the rules and I can't seem to find anywhere in the rulebook where the 20 item tiles are used. Was hoping someone could let me know. Thanks in advance. Can't wait to play this game.

They're mentioned in the rules on page 11, last paragraph. They're for the expansion rules, which are available at www.czechgames.com

They are there for a free mini-expansion. The rules weren't released with the game, but they are available on Czech Games Editions' website. They are only for advanced players and make the game harder; in fact, the CGE website has you take a test to see how well you really know Dungeon Lords before you can download them. Of course, even if you fail you can still download them, but they are not friendly to new players.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

That's hilarious!

Just so you know what they do, they're items that players either give directly to one another (Straightforward Variant) or secretly give to the adventurers before orders are done, and the reveal occurs when adventurers are assigned (Tricky Variant). The Tricky Variant is extremely subtle and involves a lot of trying to figure out exactly what your opponents will do; both variants generate a lot of extra player interaction but make the adventurers significantly harder to dispose of.

For those that have tried it, do you like this expansion?

I do quite a bit, but it is A) difficult and B) difficult and C) cutthroat. I prefer the Tricky version, but both add a lot of player interaction and interesting/tough choices, and make it so that combat becomes a much more challenging endeavor (usually, I've seen people blaze through those smelly adventurers regardless of their shiny loot).

I usually play without it because it makes the combat much harder, but it's very fun to mix in for a change of pace once all players know the game pretty well -- it's not at all noob friendly.

When I try to download the expansion instructions from the website, after going through the seven questions I get the festival season rules instead. Anyone have a direct link to the instructions?

Edit: that's no good. it gives the festival season. I see the problem there. I'm still looking. I downloaded them this week. I'll find them.
