dungeon twister

If you are looking for an exciting and challenging board game for 2 players, you definitely should give Dungeon Twister a try. The rules are not really complex and the game needs just an hour to play, which is also great as many ambitious games need couples of hours, which not always want to be spent. Nevertheless Dungeon Twister offers a lot of depth and lots of various possibilities each turn, also the gameplay is very well balanced. So you have to think hard about strategies and tactics to lead your eight characters (with different abilities) through a (changing) dungeon, and there's no game as the other - and this circumstance is pretty good motivation to advance your moves to maybe do better next time. Also the design and artwork comes of very well. Stunning!!

The power of your entire group of adventurers was not enough! Your courageous explorers have been captured and roughly thrown into the dungeon of a powerful mage. This cruel and vicious man was so bored he designed a mechanical labyrinth where he traps his prisioners for his own entertainment. To make the show even more entertaining, he puts not one but two groups of adventurers in the dungeon. The two teams much ight to the death in order to survive the treacherous traps laid by the Arch-Mage. Take control of a team of adventurers - warrior, troll, thief, cleric - and run them toward the exit of the dungoen in which they are trapped! Your task won't be easy: not only is there another gang of explorers pursuing the same gola, but the labyrinth floor itself is unstable. rooms turn, revealing new hallways, closing previously open passages, and your golden path to glory may well become a highway to hell! In order to make it through and win, you'd have to carefully choose your weapons which include speed, dexterity, trickery, and brute strength. You must also be able to use your tactical resources to the utmost.
