Review - Dungeon Scroll - Game Salute
It's not often that you have a game go from an app to a physical game but that's what happen with dungeon scroll. Tyler is not a word game kids but liked the them so we gave it a try.
A dangerous, perplexing word game and dungeon delve where only those with the quickest wit and largest vocabulary survive. As sorcerers of the mystical art of Word Weaving, you and several other treasure hunters will descend into the Tomb of the Forgotten Consonant and quest for the Syllabus of the Lost Syllable. When the journey is complete, only the most heroic word smith will walk away with the win.
Make words, defeat enemies, claim victory.
Tyler started out the first 2 battles spelling the, which he thought was hilarious. He wins a couple battles and I win a couple. We avoid the traps the dungeon has set for us by spelling long enough words and as we get deeper into the game he is up 25-26. Now we are at the boss battle and he just narrowly edges me out and takes a 35-30 lead. We go head to head in the last battle but there is no way for me to make it back into the game and Tyler wins.
"This game really surprised me. Having only really played unspeakable words as far as non scrabbleish games go i really enjoyed this. I like that the cards can be different with different rules each round and different effects on what and how you can play cards. Keeper for sure."
"I did not think i would like a game that involved spelling, but i really like this one. The game mechanic is one that i have not seen before. The only thing i did not like is that the last battle card is the same every time."
