Wondered if anyone had tried this? Video game dungeon crawlers have had this, why not boardgames? All the components are there, heroes, monsters, maps, treasures, objectives.

Could be as simple as placing an objective tile at the bottom of the tile stack and keeping score how many tiles you've survived, how many XP gained from slaying monsters, etc. I'm sure some sort of scoring system could be easily devised. Might add to re playability? Combining all 3 games into one huge metagame would multiply replayability a great deal. Would work well as solo, what about multiplayer?, I'd think a scoring system might add more competitive depth. Obviously,Competitive multi play would have to continue until last hero left standing. Scores tallied, winner declared.

Legend of Drizzt includes this as their last scenario. I think it says you win once you've explored 12 tiles, but they put a little table on the page that you can fill in and keep a high score of how many tiles you actually explored before dying.

Ah, had not gotten to that one yet, thanks. I try not to look at the scenarios before playing them. There are three I've not played yet in LOD and just got CR last week. I've not survived a CR scenario yet. blush

In my opinion it is the hardest of the three games. Although that could just be it was the first one we played and hadn't learnt any tactics yet...

Wife and I actually won one last night, both of us had one HP left and I was poisoned. Last turn, if I didn't roll a 10+, it would have went in the "loss" column. Good times!
