Ares Games has a new Dungeonology board game coming out tomorrow. Players will head around to different civilizations, looking to study their histories. However, groups aren't always that thrilled with outsiders coming in and poking around everywhere. It's a fine balancing act, but if the players want to get the best score, they'll need to make it work.
From the website:
Dungeonology: The Expedition, the atypical dungeon crawler where the characters are scholars challenged to submit the best thesis on a mysterious Civilization in a remote Dungeon to become the new professor of University of Rocca Civetta, is now shipping to distributors and will start to hit the stores in the US on November 20th. The game releases alongside its first expansion, Erasmus, and the Custom Sleeves accessory.
Set in the Renaissance world of Nova Aetas, Dungeonology will lead players to the discovery of different Civilizations in order to learn their histories and customs, being careful as the locals will not always be happy with the intrusion. The base game, Dungeonology: The Expedition, contains four heroes and all the material needed to face the Laetus dungeon that develops on 19 tiles.
