Dungeon crawls are usually more serious affairs and can get rather involved with games like Gloomhaven, Descent, and Massive Darkness. But what if you just want to have a silly time dungeoning in a short time span? Then Fungeon Party is here to save the day.
Fungeon Party is a light dexterity, party game that plays in only 3 minutes, and can support up to 4 people. In the game you will pull 6 quest cards from a quest deck, and it’s these quests that you have to accomplish in order to win the game. Each player will pick a class like barbarian, cleric, ranger, or others, with each class having their own special abilities to accomplish quests, and stats that can increase over time. But two questions remain, what do you do on these quests and how does it play in only 3 minutes? Well to answer the time question is simple, you get 30 seconds to complete each quest for a total time of 3 minutes. As for what quests you will be doing, you will be doing things like stacking dice on your forehead, knocking down a meeple surrounded by dice, balancing a meeple on a stick, bouncing dice into the box, and more. Manage to complete all six quests and you win!
Fungeon Party is a random and frantic game that while may not exactly scratch that dungeon crawling itch, it would definitely be a fun opening game before the heavy stuff. Look for it in stores in June, but you can go and pre-order the game today. Check out Wizkids’ webpage for more information.
