About this project

Little Dungeon is a dungeon crawling card game. Designed to be simple, imaginative and accessible for young children while having a level of fun to captivate tweens, teens, young adults, parents and grandparents.

 As you make your way through this dungeon adventure, collect all the treasure you can. You can get loot, weapons, and special cards to help you along the way, but keep an eye out for those monsters! They have a lot of goodies, but they won't give them up without a fight. You can defend against them, attack them or pay them off. If you defeat them, all their treasure is yours! But look out, for when the Shadow Mage makes his appearance the pace really picks up! The player who collects the most loot wins!

"a tabletop Dungeon Crawl truly seems a cute and smart idea"

Heroes from the land of Perilous have joined together to seek adventure and loot in the fortress of Turtle Rock. Turtle Rock was once the moving fortress built upon the back of a gigantic tortoise. Long ago it was the home of the good King Maximus. No more is the case. Now Turtle Rock is only host to monsters and tales of treasure waiting to be taken by those brave enough to seek it.

BEWARE ADVENTURER! The monsters roaming these dungeon halls will not take kindly to you taking their loot and will do everything they can to reclaim it.

One copy of the game Little Dungeon: Turtle Rock includes a prepackaged set of 67 playing cards and instructions.

Here is a spread of the individual pieces that will construct your dungeon adventure!

Dungeon crawls are fun! I created Little Dungeon for my children who, being very young, were limited in the card and board games we could play together and both find entertaining. I was burned out on Uno and the rest of the games accessible to younger children. So I set out to create a game. It had to be simple, quick and entertaining. Combining the kid's love of card games and my families infatuation with dungeons and adventure; Little Dungeon was born. Turns out it's really fun. I want to share it with all of you so you can have your own adventures in the world of Perilous. 

Read interviews about the game. The Inquisitive Meeple interviewed me about Little Dungeon and posted it on BoardGameGeek.com

$9,250 Pro-Box

When we reach this goal, we'll be able to provide nice pro-box containers for your dungeon cards. 

$14,000 Loot Chest

Loot Chest + Cards + Manual. Everyone who pledges $15 or more will receive this stretch goal. This is the chest from the Phat Loot except it doesn't include the gems and coins. 

$18,000 Phat Loot Chest

At this level we'll be able to create some cool pieces straight from the dungeon! We've lined up several manufacturers to custom make a super rad little dungeon chest case, playable game gems and coins. Phat Loot! Phat Loot!

We'll create a new reward level for anyone wanting to get the chest for the price adjustment.

 They design is final, but the colors may be inverted: black with white lined art. These are American Apparel. They makes some of the best, high quality ringspun shirts around. The 50/50 is very soft and lightweight, and is available in unisex, women's and youth sizes.

Enter Little Dungeon: Turtle Rock now! This print-n-play meant to give you a taste for adventuring in Little Dungeon.  It is limited because it is only in black-and-white and is marked with a Kickstarter logo and the URL to http://littledungeon.com. Please note this is not state of the final cards.

 These avatars are for backers that want to show their awesome love for dungeon crawling. They are 256px by 256px.

Right click and save as the image you want or click the link to the avatar you want and it'll take you to our hosted version of the image for you to save.

Risks and challenges

The original intent of the game was to design something for children as young as 5. Because of strict rules and required testing to be compliant with Federal Laws I cannot guarantee until after testing the lower age qualification. I may have to set the minimum age of 12.

The biggest risks I am planning for are the printing and logistics. I'm not 100% sure on the turn around time yet. I'm expecting 3-4 months for manufacturing , about 45-60 days to ship and finally a week or two to hit your door step.

For shipping I'm planning on using Amazon fulfillment. This should make getting you your order in a timely fashion.
