What kind of game is Bag of Dungeon?

This is the perfect old-school ‘dungeon crawler’, designed to be simple to set up and learn and quick and easy to play. It’s low complexity rating means it’s perfect for first-time gamers and families, and because the whole game fits in a bag, you can carry your dungeon with you wherever life’s real adventures take you.

But don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the game. The dungeons can be hard, sometimes almost unbeatable. And because every dungeon is different, it will keep you fighting, looting and dying over and again for many happy hours.

  1. Alastair Penny

    Great game. Played it with my 8yr old daughter and as dnd newbies found it tricky the first go, then we found the video explaining it. Second go was a lot of fun. Well made and easily portable.

  2. Alen

    I’m playing it with kids (5 and 7) and it is a blast!

  3. andrew

    Bought this for my son on kickstarter, he absolutely loves this game, easy to carry around sets up in no time at all easy to learn and great fun

  4. Renato

    Really fun game, easy to understand, good replayability and easy to carry around, good old dungeon crawler

  5. Glyn

    Backed this as a KS, throughout the process the communication was spot on. A great game, good fun love playing with my eldest son and games group.

  6. Moiz Malik

    I like this game. I do a lot of RPGs and I use this game as a gateway for kids to learn dnd. I also play the game, as intended, and it gives you the bare bones essentials of a dungeon delving game. Highly recommended for travelling with kids.

  7. Julie Doble

    We love this game we have played it both co-op and competitive.

  8. Will Shoreham

    Great fun! Perfect introduction to fantasy gaming. Like travel d&d!

  9. Lewis

    A great game for all the family. My 11 and 6 year old love this game, with its endless replayability!

  10. Bob

    This is one of the games I was most looking forward to last year. Due to COVID shipping restrictions it took a long time to get but my kids love this game my daughter says this is her favorite co-operative game we have and also to play it at least once a week. I would love to see an expansion that adds more players and maybe the bonus material from the first Kickstarter

  11. Steven D. Miller

    Loses its fun after you realize it is impossible to win if you can’t defeat the first monster and super simple if you do. Re-playable in competitive mode, but the cut-throat tactics may be fun for some, but not for me. Still, I like the concept and it’s a great beer and pretzel game.

  12. DB (London)

    When we asked our two teenagers to choose two of our boardgames to take with us on our summer holiday, they were unanimous on taking Bag of Dungeon. As a family of four, we’ve had a lot of fun playing the game. 5/5 on family fun, portability and the high quality components.

  13. AndreHerzog

    I like this dungeon crawler. Its very retro and komfortable to learn, play and build! Every dungeon is randomized so there is also a high replayability!!

  14. James (London)

    Brilliantly portable, nice minimalist design and lots of fun. Basic game is highly replayable as different every time; additional Dragon Scroll adventures add further complexity and variety. Have enjoyed playing game with adults and my children, who enjoyed it too.

  15. Johan

    I underwrite ALL the 39 above comments on BoD (even the “less positive” have a point).
    I find it a charming little dungeon crawler. Also it can be brutal if you do it solo with one character only and on your first 1 or 2 monsters you have really bad rolls…
    RIP… But if you use your wits and a little strategy together with some luck, then you can beat it solo with the “weakest” character (which is a lot of fun)!

  16. Richard

    Gameplay is fine.
    I have had it pointed out to me that the background stories for the female characters are problematic.
    If your main qualification is being a seventh daughter, this broke the emotional buy-in for my wife and daughter.

  17. Tomasz Ziege

    The best game, my 7-year-old son loves this.

  18. Oz

    Actually a really cool little set up, I’ve been trying to get my 7 year old into gaming but was worried it wouldn’t be enjoyable for me too. It’s great, good fun, quick paced, different every time, well thought out and the expansions allow her to get creative with it.
    Thanks for being the game she got into

  19. Jacopo – Florence – Tuscany

    A fun game which is easy to play with a high ceiling of options. Great for new or old gamers.
    Great component in a smal box

  20. David

    This wonderful game harkens back to the old school days of dungeon crawls. Everything from the charming artwork to the random nature of the tiles, monsters and items along with a large assortment of dragon scroll quest cards makes each play through unique. The free print and play expansion material adds even more variety. All in a small box with nice canvas bags for the components makes for the perfect travel companion either solo or with friends.

  21. Martin

    Being a fan of D&D, I wanted a similar type game that I could play solo. This is easily the most fun I’ve had playing a solo game. Rules are straight forward and it takes 3 minutes to set up.

  22. Alex

    Played with adults and kids. Just a great fun dungeon crawler. Lots of great decisions and I have seen games turn around with great surprises. 2.2 rules are super smooth and expansion downloads are free!

  23. Daniel Matuszak

    Brilliant little D&D style game ! I have purchased it last week and it got delivered to Ireland in 2 days. Since Day 1 I have played multiple games with 1 -2 and 4 players. Every time the game was different and every time the game was incredibly FUN ! I highly recommend this game for everyone who is looking for a decent RPG game for a quick session.

  24. Hewco.uk

    This game has been designed just for me (I’m 99% sure). Meeples, tiles, simple but engaging rules and a element of randomness and luck making every game different. Bag of Dungeon sits amongst my favourite games on the shelf. So glad I found it.

  25. Nick

    Absolutely lovely little game – great production values and author support

  26. Stuart Gabriel

    Awesome game me and my daughter love it , plus it has some great expansions which bring a new level of depth to your character. All in all a brilliant family and solo game

  27. Amazon buyer

    Always looking for the perfect little dungeon crawler and I may have just found it. Easy to set up, portable and tons of replayability.

  28. Roberto – Italy

    Brilliant game! Easy to play with a lot of fun.
    It really brings back old memories. You have the ring, now everybody wants to kill you and there is a dragon near the exit…
    what could possibly go wrong?

  29. Nela

    If Munchkin and Talisman had a baby it would be this. An easy game for tough gamers.

  30. Tim Lux

    Sehr schönes Spiel, mit tollem Spielmaterial. Die einfachen Regeln und die Spielidee ist einfach eine Klasse für sich.
    Spielespaß für groß und klein.

  31. Chris

    I wanted an old fashioned D&D game because I have good memories of Sorcerers Cave etc. This game is fantastic straight out of the box. Simple and logical rules, immersive gameplay, very well balanced characters with good strategic depth
    Good for newbies or old hands. PvP is brutal, co-op is fun, yet to go solo
    Great production values.
    Every game is different.
    A mush Xmas buy
    All it needs is a Tavern tile to heal

    I smashed it last night. Faced the dragon with the Dwarf with a +3 axe and the loyal bear. chucked a bomb and necked some strength potion for extra dice. Glad I bought this game! Nice one lads

  33. Nick K.

    Easy and fast setup, simple rules, ton of replayability and an old-school aura all in a small bag. This is an excellent game for solo or with some friends. Great for new and old board and role players. Well done Gunpowder Studios!

  34. Richard Ellis

    A brilliant game, my family and I love it

  35. Martin via Kickstarter

    Please help, I wonder “Who is to blame?”
    Yesterday night I played with my 15-year-old son Niklas. After a great tagging-fight, I offered him the best weapons & items, just assuring me he won’t use those against me.
    After I got the ring he had this look on his face. And I asked him if we continue playing in cooperative mode in order to slay the dragon. (Cause otherwise I had this terrible bomb in my inventory…) After he saw my bomb he agreed about cooperative playstyle. On his next move all of a sudden he attacked me (with my precious gifts I generously gave him!). After he murdered me he slew the dragon with my bow, my bomb, my boots, my magical sword. (And can you believe it: his last toss of dice was a double 6 – as if the god he worships wanted to bless his disputable actions!) Now I am confused. Please tell me: who is to blame for this? Is it me (stupidity, education,…)? Is it him (his deeply dark soul)? My current opinion: It’s Fred, the gnome, who is to blame.
    In other words: your game is cool, but it has the power to shatter families ;-))

  36. Steve via Kickstarter

    Had a chance to play a game tonight.
    First off, very well done!!! You guys nailed it!! This game takes me back to old school D&D!!

  37. Nick via Kickstarter

    Ok I have to say I just got this game yesterday (YAY!) and it is better than I thought it would be. Solo play was a ton of fun. Game felt hard and challenging on solo (I ran through with only 1 character, not multiples). The rules are very simple and straightforward making it easy for me to explain to new players and fun for everyone while you play without getting bogged in complicated rules. I love the box (much better I think than I would have just the bag as the box fits nicely on my game shelf). This is a great entry into a DND type game that plays fairly quick and is easy for any new gamer to pick up on. Thank you so much for this. One of my favorite backed Kickstarter games so far!

  38. Gary via Kickstarter

    Bag of Dungeon arrived today here in New Jersey USA. It looks great and I’m already lovin’ the Dice Tower!! Thank you

  39. JD via Kickstarter

    Played a solo session and yesterday a session with my 8 and 10-year-old sons. Love it, the nostalgic simplicity of the old dungeon crawler games really hit the spot! I am actually designing an easy to play dungeon crawler with a unique mechanic myself (that is why I initially backed this one) and must say BoD does a great job at it!

  40. Andrew

    Really enjoyed playing this down the pub with a few old gamer chums. Old school, perfect!

  41. Jason – London

    A fun game which is easy to play with a high ceiling of options. Great for new or old gamers.
