Lost Treasures Dungeon Crawl Game

Lost Treasures is a free print-and-play dungeon crawl game. From the author’s description:

Lost Treasures is a simple two player game where each player must hire a party of adventurers to retrieve the treasure from a forgotten dungeon.

Each player represents competing Patrons who wish to recover treasures thought to be lost forever. They use magic and research to locate the treasures but must hire mercenaries to actually retrieve them. The intrigue between them means that when one discovers a treasure the other is not long to follow. One player recruits his adventurers from the noble worthy races, the other from the dregs and evil denizens. Unfortunately due to the rush to try and get there first, sometimes the parties are not as well equipped as they could be. . .

The game includes figures, dungeon tiles, cards and more.

Arkham Express Board Game

Arkham Express is a quick play adventure game set in the Lovecraft mythos. From the Board Game Geek description:

Arkham Express is a cooperative dice-based game designed by David Willems. Players are working together to gather clues, kill monsters, close gates and eventually defeat the Great Old One (Cthulhu).

Players will select characters, each with a unique special ability. During a player’s turn they will roll 5 dice with unique symbols on each side, after rolling they have the option of re-rolling 3 more times. If the “Monster” symbol is rolled on a die it is locked and cannot be re-rolled. If 3 Monster symbols appear a new gate opens and a monster appears in Arkham. The other sides of the dice include movement points, clue tokens (used to close gates), healing, and combat symbols (used when fighting the monsters guarding the gates). Each player must carefully choose how to use their symbols to move around and try to close and collect six gates. If six gates are open on the board the players automatically lose.. However if the players manage to close six gates Cthulhu awakens and players must try to defeat him with their remaining items and abilities.

Agricola Express

Agricola is one of the great “Euro” style board games of recent years, but like more than a few, it can be quite involved. Agricola Express takes the strategy and basics of that game and boils it down to a dice based game. Even better: it’s free and ownership of Agricola is not required.

Dune Express

Dune Express is a print-and-play board game based on the 1970s era Avalon Hill game Dune. The authors write:

DUNE Express is a print-and-play boardgame. It is based on a game published in the late 70s, which was set in the well known science fiction universe created by Frank Herbert. The original game was quite complicated. DUNE Express is a community-written version of this game which is much more simple and quicker to play (hence the “express”). I chose to take these Express rules and create all the components for the game as a portfolio piece. I was keen to give it a Steampunk theme and to avoid it looking too technologically advanced.
