Dungeon! Boardgame: More scans

I'm not sure if I played Dungeon! before D&D or not, but it was close. I must have been about ten or eleven. I thought of it again when I played Labyrinth Lord with Josiah, and as much fun as we had that day, I think it might be just a little too early for him and that game. He enjoyed the miniatures so much though, I thought there must be a way for us to utilize them and still play a similar game that would be more suitable. Dungeon! seemed like the perfect solution, we'd just replace the plastic player pieces with the much cooler minis. The only downside being that of course I no longer had a copy. So I went on eBay and one small fortune later, presto, one Dungeon! boardgame. We haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I thought I'd share some scans here (see also my earlier post of the box bottom):

Board detail : Monster cards : Spell cards : Treasure cards

We played this all the time in public school. I still have it.

BTW Would you be willing to send me a copy of your editable random hireling generator for the purpose of house-ruling? Thanks!

It's not formatted to be editable, but I've been meaning to fix that. Hopefully within the next week...

That's the version I had as a kid. I've got a more recent version now that I picked up used from eBay, but it just doesn't grab my heartstrings like this version does.

What I really want is a copy of the rules from this edition. I liked the combat chart better...

hmmm, maybe it's time to clone this thing.

Great stuff, I played the German version from Parker, called "Verlies" back in the days.

I would be very in reposting the pics, as part of a series on RPG history (at

Could offer lots of old scholl RPG pics in exchange.

Is there any way I can contact you? my address is
