Though this particular digging is in a dungeon. Dungeon Digger makes you a Dungeon Lord looking to expand your territory and conquer your neighbors. You'll do this by ordering around your Stooges (henceforth, when I play, I would say that my name's Iggy) to make intricate tunnels.
The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dungeon Digger, a strategic dungeon building board game, is on Kickstarter now!
The players take on the role of horrible Dungeon Lords ready to sacrifice their servants, the Stooges, to dig the most intricate underground dungeon and annihilate their opponents.
Dungeon Digger is a competitive comic-fantasy boardgame with a duration of 40-60 minutes, for 2 to 6 players of age 12 or more.
The Kickstarter is already over its funding goal, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 32 days.
