If you are a fan of the dungeon crawl board games like Temple of Elemental Evil, then you will probably want to check out Dungeon Saga: Dwarf King’s Quest when it arrives in September.

The game, which was created by Jake Thornton, received over a million dollars in Kickstarter funding from 5,963 backers last August, pits players against a Game Master (in this case a Necromancer) who controls the creation of the board during the game. In typical high fantasy role playing, the heroes range from barbarian and dwarf to elf and wizard, and must work together to defeat the big bad.

Set in the Dwarfen Hold of Dolgarth, one player will take on the role of Mortibris and command the Undead in a battle against mighty heroes. These adventurers can be split between up to 4 players, or led by just one. You’ll use the simple rules to play through the game’s exciting scenarios, before eventually facing off against the Necromancer in a final showdown!

Once you’ve played through the story, pick up and play with the Adventurer’s Companion – a tome of Advanced Rules that introduces elements of classic roleplaying to your adventures!

What really has my interest is the 26 plastic miniatures that will come with the game. While it doesn’t have the number found in the D&D games, the sculpts look really good, and should bring the adventure to life. While playing against a GM will work for many of the adventures, Mantic Games has several fully cooperative adventures for two to five players.

Dungeon Sago: The Dwarf King’s Quest has a MSRP of $79.99, which is in the same ballpark as other games of this type.  The game company also plans a number of expansions that will be released soon after.
