Filled with strategy, betting, and a bit of luck, Dungeon Derby is an easy to learn board game that naturally builds with tension and excitement until the last race is won.
Semi-Cooperative: The ability to strategically bet on any champion in the dungeon creates a cooperative effort between players in a race. But beware, friends can quickly turn to foes as the next race begins.
Real-Time Play: Each phase of the game is played in real time as players collectively draw cards, play cards, and play encounters. Excitement and adrenaline build throughout the game as anything can happen…
What Are Reviewers Saying?
"First off, this game is fun!"
"Never before have I cheered so much for a MInotaur or cursed a Hammerhead Shark for not being fast enough. Just when you think the Champion that you bet on is nearing the finish line, a Spell will be cast that throws them into last place or propels another character just past them to steal the victory. But don’t worry there will be plenty of time to get your revenge in the next race. Just make sure you bet on the right Champion. Move it shark!"
Casual Game Revolution
"Dungeon crawling is slow! Why not race through the dungeon instead? It's a dungeon full of traps, monsters, and loot."
"There's nothing filler about it. It’s light enough to be easy to learn but hefty enough to be the star of the show."
Board Game Authority
"The character design is probably the most wonderful and mystifying game element for my part."
"Dungeon Derby is easy to learn, plenty competitive, shows a great mix of luck and strategy, has tons of replay value, and would be a great party game for people who want a little more out of their party games."
Dungeon Crawler Podcast
"With a number of legendary creatures to bet on, this board game rich in strategy and interaction is one you'll definitely want to bring home!"
Board Game Stories
"As in every thrilling event, there is a side which we support to make things interesting. Likewise, in Dungeon Derby you will start by choosing a Champion to support, gaining some extra profits from their performance."
Meet the Designer Tanner Yarro with a Quick Overview of the Game:
Dungeon Derby came to the inventor as a dream after an unfruitful trip to Las Vegas. Wishing that there was a better way to combine strategy with fortune, and being a sucker for fantasy and fun, we eventually put together a gaming experience that is truly unique for people of all backgrounds and ages.
Risks and challenges
As with any project there are inherent risks. We have taken all precautions to ensure we can not only meet expectations but exceed them. We have already partnered with a manufacture and have received prototypes to verify quality. Once our Kickstarter funds we will begin the process of molding the mini's. Rest assured we already have the drawings so it should go quickly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
