About

"Centuries ago your people were driven out of their ancestral home by great horrors forgotten by time. While some heroes are driven by greed, others by honor, and others by a lust for power, your group represents the greatest champions of your time. Together you will venture into these tainted lands to recover history's greatest artifact from the clutches of evil: Durgun's Crown."

This game is a table top adventure game with a build-as-you-go style dungeon filled with random monsters, traps, treasures, and other miscellaneous events; so, no 2 games are ever the same. It features a fast paced, yet strategically minded combat system that keeps the game fun for all players. All of this adventure then culminates in an End Quest where the players must work together to overcome one of many unique end game scenarios.

  • Box dimensions: 11.25 x 7.5 x 2"
  • For 1-6 players.
  • For Ages 14+.

With plenty of Dungeon Adventure games out there to pick from, why chose Durgun's Crown?  The two big reasons are replay value and variety. With over 200 unique card and tile designs, it will take most players several games just to encounter all the basic items, monsters, and events.  Add to that several playable characters and you have a game that you will continue to enjoy for years to come.

But what really sets Durgun's Crown apart is that it includes many possible End Game quests which each add a unique challenge to your playing experience.  Inspired by Betrayal at House on the Hill, you will face a variety of challenges which include epic boss fights, timed challenges, curses, falling into alternate realms, and so many more unique endings that you and your friends will enjoy playing this game over-and-over just to discover all the hidden content these end quests have to offer.

You Come First: Kickstarter supporters will get their games well before Durgun's Crown reaches stores.

Localized Shipping: Our Kickstarter international shipping fees are so low because we send games in bulk to fulfillment centers around the world.  Especially if you live outside the USA, this is your chance to get this game at the lowest possible rate.   

Make it Better: Certain features will only be available through Kickstarter stretch goals; so, don't forget that you can tell your friends, post on your favorite gamer blogs, and/or share us on Facebook to help us release the best product possible.

We Need You: We've already put countless hours into the design, art, and testing of Durgun's Crown, but we need your support to cover the heavy upfront cost of printing and shipping to get this great new game off the ground.

Although this is our first Kickstarter, we've spent a lot of time researching and setting up effective shipping techniques so that we can ship all over the world without costing you an arm-and-a-leg in hidden fees.  To make things easier on you, we will be be using bulk shipments to fulfillment centers around the world to eliminate customs and other hidden fees for many of our international backers.  

*A special thanks to Jamey Stegmaier at Stonemaier Games for sharing his methods of international shipping explained Here.

Risks and challenges

Durgun's Crown is 99% done, and we already have our printing and distribution companies lined up and ready to go. That said, there are still two major complications that haunt every table-top game: publishing times and design errors. After much consideration, we think we've found an approach to prevent these problems as much as possible.

The first issue you run into with boardgames is publishing times. Even with a world class printing and fulfillment companies at our backs, large runs of any boardgame can easily take 6 months if not longer. At Jackal Head Games, we do not think that you should have to wait so long to begin your adventures; so, we will be including a print-and-play copy of the game with every sale! That's right, as soon as funds clear (about 2 weeks after the project ends), everyone will receive a digital copy of the game so that you don't have to wait on us to get started with your quests.

This brings us to our second issue. Unlike video-games, boardgames can't be fixed with a patch. We've all played kickstarters with game breaking mechanics, typos, or poorly explained rules. To mitigate that, Durgun's Crown has already gone through months of rigorous play testing and numerous revisions to make everything as clear and balanced as possible... but we're only human right? So, we will also be adding an FAQs page to our website to address any common questions that do come up as you play. Finally, by offering print-and-play copies BEFORE the game hits the printers, we will be able to take feedback from players across the world for several weeks before the first published game is expected to print giving us a unique opportunity to flush out any unclear language and typos in the final product!
