Dungeon Royale is an entry level strategy board game that mimics retro handheld console gameplay (and box/board design). Players begin with a certain number of lives based on their level w/in the game. When they are killed by other players, they re-spawn back at the beginning as if in a video game. Players have weapons that allow them to attack others on the board at certain positions but must move strategically as the other players reveal their moves all at the same time. The purpose of the game is to escape with the elixir of life while accomplishing missions and capturing as many artifacts and gaining as many kill points as possible.
Story: The King is dying and has commissioned 2-4 heroes to capture the stone of life in a nearby dungeon from its Dragon guardian. Only each of the other heroes is battling for their own glory and will not be afraid to kill you in order to capture the stone and other valuable artifacts for themselves. Your goal is to either capture the stone yourself, or complete other missions and gather other valuable artifacts to bring back home.
