Darkfast Dungeons is a print and play tabletop game designed to provide a robust dungeon crawl experience in a couple of hours. Perfect as an introduction for kids or people new to tabletop gaming Darkfast Dungeons is also a great game for more experienced players with limited time or resources to devote to gaming. A typical dungeon crawl will last 2-3 hours and provide a unique adventure with each game played.
There are many ways to play Darkfast Dungeons with rules and scenarios for co-operative games, competitive games and solo play. Darkfast Dungeons will be supported with two possible expansions upon the release of the game. Dragon Lord will be unlocked through stretch goals and Dark Depths will be released as a Kickstarter exclusive. Each expansion adds 26 new game tiles, 6 new character types and a whole new set of 12 monsters, 6 magic items, gear and encounter cards.
Print and play cardstock games and miniatures are an affordable and attractive alternative to metal or plastic miniatures. Print as many as you like as often as you like.
You will need a colour printer (or access to a printing company like Staples, Fed Ex Office or UPS Store), cutting tools, glue, card stock paper, matt board (heavy cardboard) and time. Assembly instructions are included.
Elements of this game may also be used to enhance the experience of other tabletop games when used as scenery, terrain, miniatures or props.
Designed and created by two time nominated ENnie Award artist and writer David Okum, Darkfast Dungeons is sure to be a useful addition to fantasy gaming miniatures and terrain and a fun game to play in its own right.

There are some fantastic game designers and artists out there and I'd be neglectful if I didn't mention the support and guidance they have given me through this process.

Risks and challenges
The best laid plans of mice and men can be thwarted by unexpected events that might delay the production of Darkfast Dungeons, but the time allotted is well within a comfort zone similar to what was used with previous releases such as Snowball Wars and the Ennie-nominated Katana Schoolgirls vs Zombie Furries and both of those games were released with time to spare.
Every effort will be made to overcome any setbacks in delivering the base game and all of the add-ons and unlocked stretch goals. Some stretch goals may have extended deadlines if the project increases in size.
The game itself has been in existence in one way or another since the early 90s so there has been quite a bit of play testing. There are some rules clarifications that need work and layout, but otherwise the game itself is totally fleshed out.
