Tabletop word games have been around longer than I can remember. I’m sure just about everyone has a dusty (or maybe not so dusty) copy of Scrabble buried in a closet somewhere. While I do enjoy the occasional game of Scrabble, by this point in my life I feel like I’ve played that one enough (much to the chagrin of my wife). So when I stumbled across our newest Kickstarter of the Week, I was immediately intrigued. Dungeon Scroll seeks to combine elements of word play with a good old fashion dungeon delve. The game is very easy to learn, has as decent amount of replay value and looks to be a lot of fun as well.
From the Kickstarter page:
If the encounter is a “combat” encounter, typically the player that can play the highest point word will win the encounter and claim the highest gold reward on the dungeon card, with other players claiming the second and third reward – however that is not always true as each dungeon challenge provides twists and turns; to the sorts of words that can be played!
In addition to being easy to play, I’ve really been enjoying the artwork they’ve shown so far. I also like how this is a game that can even appeal to your non-gamer friends. They might be skeptical with the theme, but I have a feeling that once they start playing they will be hooked. If you’d like to become a backer, at $35 pledge will get you a copy of the game and any stretch rewards. Dungeon Scroll is scheduled to be in backers hands in October of 2014. You have until Saturday, March 15th to become a backer, so head over today if you are interested.
