A new DUNGEON! board game on its way!!!!!!

Looks like my all-time favorite board game is making a comeback--DUNGEON! Man, I take ONE DAY to move all my worldly possessions (Saturday) and then finally tonight I try to get caught up on blog roll reading and find out on Grognardia (props, BTW) what Wizards of the Coast has just announced for release come October 12:
A classic board game of dungeon exploration returns!

Dungeon! is a fast-paced game where you and your friends can decide which way to go in the hunt for bigger and better treasure.

Will you stick to level 1 and clear out the Goblins and Kobolds? Or will you delve deep into level 6 and set your sights on the Purple Worm or the Red Dragon? Along the way, you’ll have to face off against such iconic monsters as the Black Pudding, the Drow, and even the Owlbear!

Featuring simple, straightforward rules that are easy to learn, Dungeon! is perfect for a fantasy game night, or a warm-up before your next epic game of D&D!
After what appeared to be a false start, last year this looks like the real deal. Best of all, the game will retail for just $20, which frankly is a boon to any parents looking to bring their kiddos along in the ways of nascent geekdom and the wonders of ESP medallions. I'm sure there's bound to be some updates to the rules, but I'm really hoping it still keeps the fun monster and treasure card system--and of course the, ahem, spell cards!

And early October means it'll arrive just in time for a Halloween game-a-thon. Here's to new adventures with an old favorite!

I know! isn't awesome. I love dungeon and I used it to introduce my kids to D&D.
