Unfortunately, FFG messed with the combat system and made it over-complicated and slow. Thankfully FFG did listen to its fans and now we have DungeonQuest Revised! Basically, they took out all of their changes.
Those of you who are not familiar with DungeonQuest, here is a quick rundown: 1-4 players are sneaking into Dragon Fire Castle to steal some of the dragon's sweet golden loot. Whoever escapes the dungeon with the most loot wins. The map of the dungeon starts as a blank grid with the dragon's treasure chamber into the center. Every turn a player explores a space and adds a room tile or two to the map.
It is a random and often times brutal game. Many times the "winner" was the hero who died last. Having all four adventurers get killed is not uncommon, which is why when we play it two-player we each take two each.
The game is up to FFGs excellent standards for components, and has just had a reprinting. The game sets up quick and plays very fast, with each game taking around 45 minutes. Highly recommended for when you are in the mood for some light, fast gaming. Just don't get too attached to your characters.
