Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm looking for a boardgame that offers an experience similar to that of playing second edition dungeons and dragons with weak characters and a mean DM. Lots of random ways to die and gruesome detail, preferably, with some old school charts that describe which limbs you lost to gangrene after a goblin stabbed you with a rusty knife, etc. Nethackish, but with a board and some friends.
I have played descent and heroquest and those other well known dungeon crawl games, but they do not quite sate the desire for player misery. I'd also prefer that there not be a DM.
Does this game exist in a non pen and paper rpg format, or do i have to make it myself?
