About

Postcard Dungeons
Postcard Dungeons

Postcard Dungeons is a tiny game of small adventures. It's a fun and relatively short game that is great for groups filling time while waiting for someone to show up. It's also one of the most portable games in the world since it's the size of a large postcard.

Choose a Dungeon

The board represents 3 deadly dungeons, each one more challenging than the one before it. On a player's turn they choose 1 of the dungeons to explore and randomly determine its contents by rolling 3 dice in order.

They then choose their party of heroes by rolling three dice and choosing a Thief, a Warrior and a Wizard. 

Win Treasure

Depending on the choices they make they may gain a Treasure that has magical abilities that will help them in later dungeon exploration or gain them the riches they need to win the game.

The game can be played by 2-6 players, is great for casual play and lasts about 30-45 minutes. Solo play is also possible if you want to try to beat your personal best score.

Postcard Dungeons requires 7 six sided dice (D6s) and some tokens in order to play it. DICE AND TOKENS DO NOT COME WITH THE GAME.

Stretch Goals - HERO level pledge only:

Lots of play testing and tweaking has already been done, and feedback from those who have played has been positive:

Art is still in progress, and I'll update here as it becomes available, here is one of my previous games which was done by the same artist so you can see what the quality of the final game will be:

This is an extremely alpha version of the board, note that other than ICONS, it doesn't contain any art assets yet.

Risks and challenges

I am well acquainted with the risks involved in producing the game since I have already produced 2 postcard games. Postcard Dungeons has already been extensively playtested and will continue to be be playtested and tweaked as the Kickstarter progresses.

The Art assets will be produced by the artist who worked with me on Postcard Cthulhu and Postcard Empire, Kristen Immoor. She is an amazing artist and very dependable.
