Super Dungeon Explore - A game for little Miss

There's a new game in the house - Super Dungeon Explore!


I'll be honest, I didn't know much about this game when we ordered it off ebay. I wasn't actually looking for a new game to play, I just wanted the models. With Corben getting into Heroquest and 40k, our little miss Willow was feeling a little bit left out on the painting front. So I got Super Dungeon Explore for the models, although after playing the game, we're well and truly hooked.

 

The game itself is easy to learn and play even for young kids. The boxset comes with 51 hard plastic detailed models in the 'Chibi' style where the models heads are the same size as their bodies. Here's one of the hero's I've painted up so far ...


Cute isn't he! Unfortunately I'm only allowed to paint that hero and the bad guys. You see, SDE coming into the house has an unforeseen consequence, my wife has taken an interest in painting. Here's her first attempts, she was quite keen to have me point out that they're WIP lol!


Now originally the models were supposed to be for little miss but it looks like we'll have to get something else for her as these are mine and the wife's now!

Anyway, more pics as soon as I've finished painting up these dragons and kobolds.

I really want a copy of that game! I have been looking at it for a good amount of time but figured I would have to wait for a birthday or something.

I am glad you like the game too :-)

Such a great game for the family, welcome aboard with that. My family has been loving this since Christmas. I even got my cousin and his family into the game (he's painting all of his minis up now for his boys) and all of the kids now know the rules, which is super fun! Enjoy that family time and I hope the kids besiege you with their back-stories! See also: Von Drakk Manor!

Thanks for posting this! I've been looking for a way to get my kids into gaming, and this looks perfect. My kids are still a bit young though (4 and 2), so it'll have to wait a couple years, but when they're ready this looks like the way to go!

@AD - Actually, it really pee's me off that Kez has so much artistic talent but doesn't like painting models, well until now that is mate.

@CD - Have to say mate, it really is good, we're loving it.

@YY - I'm loving painting the models up mate. I'm even considering sculpting some chibi style ork head for some fantasy orks I have so no doubt I'll be posting more pics soon mate.

@DE - Saying that mate, even my 5yo has got a basic grasp of the rules so don't leave it too long because of their age mate. They'll love it!
