Description Edit | History

Excerpted from publisher's blurb:

In Cave Troll, each player controls a party of explorers raiding the cave troll’s lair. Using knights, dwarves, thieves, and other adventurers, the players search the lair for gold and magical artifacts. The players must be careful, however, because they aren’t only competing against each other, but against savage orcs, terrifying wraiths, and the fearsome cave troll itself!

Cave Troll is a fast-paced dungeon-crawling board game of strategy, looting, and monster-bashing from Tom Jolly, the creator of Drakon. Cave Troll is playable in 20-60 minutes for two to four players, Ages 10 and up.

I took Adrian Wiecheć(justrag)modifications and tried to make them a little easier to print out if desired to play the second edition rules with your first edition set. Also thanks to Universal Head for their great as usual cheat sheets! See Adrian's How-To Play 1ed with 2ed rules post for which pieces you need to add a mark to for the second edition rules.

3 Regex horizontal tuckboxes for sleeved Cave Troll cards
Ever had your sleeves caught in the flap of the tuckbox when you were closing it? So here's a new design with an horizontal layout that will no longer cause this issue. You will find 4 tuckboxes, one for each color, with one of them slightly bigger to hold the artifact cards. It also features nice graphics and a good fit to the space in the box. Based on the generator by Craig P Forbes. For a full list of horizontal design tuckboxes see: [geeklist=66710][/geeklist]
