About

What is 🍺  Drunkgeon 🍺 I hear you say??? 🤪

It's a drinking board game completely made out of beer mats, where each mat serves as a section of the dungeon. In technical geeky terms it's called a Dungeon Crawler... but with beer. 😎

🍺 Beer?!? 🍺

That's right each player navigates through the dungeon with a pint glass filled with their chosen beverage (Anything from water to the harder stuff). The volume is your life, and when you run out you're 💀 dead! 💀

How do you bloody play it? 🤔

It's easy! 😎 At the start of the game, each player picks a character, Barbarian, Dwarf, Elf and Mage, and then they take the dungeon tile with their key on it.

Give the remaining dungeon tiles a good ole shuffle including rotating the tiles as you do. Randomly place the remaining dungeon tiles into a six by six grid. Always start by placing the top left tile first, then place tiles to the right of it until the first row is complete. Then place the leftmost tile of the second row and fill to the right. Repeat until complete. 🤓

Initial Setup

On their first turn each player inserts their dungeon tile into the dungeon. This is done by placing the dungeon tile to the side of any row or above/below any column and sliding the new tile into the grid. The expelled dungeon tile is taken by the player. The player then places a glass filled with chosen 🍺 beverage 🍺 onto that dungeon tile.

 Then they the move their player by placing the movement tile so it overhangs the table edge just under half the length of the tile. Using one hand, place it under the movement tile and in an upward motion flip it with the top of your hand and quickly catch the tile with the same hand. 👾

  • A player must move forward in the direction they started moving this turn. They may not move backward unless they hit a dead end.
  • When the path forks any new direction can be picked.
  • If you land on or move over another player you must ⚔️ FIGHT ⚔️ them.

...and then the next player takes their turn...

Moving 3!

...and so on. On subsequent turns moving or inserting a dungeon tile can be done in any order. Also at any time during your turn you can also make a 🍺 blood/beer 🍺 sacrifice to get a magic spell.

As I said EASY! Oh but wait! I forgot to tell you!?! 👹 Monsters 👹 like Goblins, Zombies, Orks, Trolls and Ogres also live in the dungeon. So perhaps not so easy.... Oh and there are traps.. almost forgot about them...😱

Steve is that your Mum???

For every monster you defeat or trap you evade you take a trophy. Each trophy gives a plus one modifier on your mat flips. This makes your attacks really hurt, and gives you the power to take on the dragon!

Flaming Trolls is a fast-paced startup started by Mat Nicholas. Mat Nicholas is an experienced Game Designer of Video games and a game-lover who lives and works in Cardiff. We aim to make board games unlike anything you have ever played before that are not only super-fun to play, but also beautiful to look at.

Making and playing the game

We've been working on Drunkgeon since late 2017. Since then, many evenings since have been spent drinking beer, testing versions of the game and generally talking about which beer is better. We’ve tried loads of different versions of the game, with lots of different tiles, doing lots of different things. Here's one of our early prototypes:

The early days...

Why Flaming Trolls and why Kickstarter?

We love games, we love board games, and we love beer. Games are great at bringing people together. If you go to a running club you're going to be running and not getting to know new people. Whereas with board games you have plenty of time to chat and get to know your fellow gamers. So Drunkgeon is about bringing people together for good times!

Launching Drunkgeon via Kickstarter will not only allow us to manufacture the game at the quality and quantity we need but this is also the best way to reach out to you, the people we hope will actually play the game. We can't wait to send those Drunkgeon your way!

Timeline  

We have our UK manufacturer lined up and we’ll begin printing the beer mats as soon as we’re funded. Here is an expected timeline from now until you get Drunkgeon in the post.

• October/November: Crowdfunding  

• December/January: Production  

• February: Delivery of beer mats to our offices  Then we'll start shipping to you!  

🤯 Thanks to everyone in advance! It's going to be a blast! 🤯

 🍻🍻🍻 CHEERS! 🍻🍻🍻

Risks and challenges

We have existing manufacturing relationships and understand the time frame involved in the production and we have chosen partners that are proven, reliable and capable of scaling up. We are confident that we will be able to deliver on time.
