About this project

Dungeon Delvers is a 4 Player cooperative card game. Players draw from a dungeon deck in order to fight monsters, gaining treasures and leveling up. At the bottom floor of the dungeon lurks a boss, defeat the boss to win!

Ages 12+

Average Game Length is 30 - 60 minutes

  • Each player chooses a character class and gets a deck of 10 cards unique to that class.
  • Players draw from the dungeon deck, which can either contain monster encounters, treasure, or other surprises.
  • During a battle, players take turns attacking monsters using cards from their specialized character decks.
  • At the end of a battle, treasure is gained and players can decide among themselves who gets what.
  • Treasure cards consist of armor, weapons, consumable items, and new techniques to add to the player decks.
  • After each battle, players go deeper into the dungeon until they reach the boss room. The deeper you delve, the stronger monsters become.
  • If the team defeats the boss, the game is over and the players win.
The Anatomy of a Monster - When fighting a monster, players will roll two four-sided dice. The first die represents what the monster does. The second die determines which player the monster will target.

A mysterious, dagger wielding figure. The Trickster uses guile and deceit to disable his enemies. His alchemical smoke bombs confuse enemies and protect the team from harm. Using his special ability, The Trickster is able to deal significant damage while gaining valuable treasure.

The game is near completion but we need your help to get it off the ground and to get the word out. We are very confident that this game will be a fun experience for friends who already love games such as Dungeons & Dragons and Munchkin.  By backing us you will help us pay to print, distribute, and market the game.

Richard Dickerson

I am well rounded Game Designer and Scripter looking to become a part of a successful team in order to make great games. I have experience in many aspects of game development, including brainstorming, scheduling, scripting, game economics and much more. I have a penchant for numbers and spreadsheets and I am not intimidated by large amounts of data. 

 I graduated in 2015 from Academy of Art University with an MFA in Game Development. I have won several awards during my time there, including the 2015 Media award for achievement in game design and 1st place at the 2015 Spring Show. My student team presented an award winning game at E3's student competition where we placed in the Top 5 out of over 400 schools.

Risks and challenges

We have been play testing the game extensively for the past four months, which has helped us to create a fun, balanced game with a high replay-ability value. We are steadily creating art assets with a distinct style and feel and they will be completed within a timely manner. Our biggest hurdles for this project are distribution and printing.
