I love the mechanics of this game and how space saving it is compared to full sized board game. I even put the dungeon cards into 'hard protective' card holders so there more like cardboard tiles. I'm using a squad of Munchkin figures for players, mini dice for tracking, big dice for conflict rolls, and Fantasy Flight 'round tokens' as blood points. I even snagged a 'zombies' zombie to act as a dungeonlord wandering squad in the variants. (yes I have a box for it now)

I can't help but wonder if this same game could have a graphical revamp as a haunted house game. I love the whole haunted house genre where the house itself is alive and full of spooky things. Something like the Winchester house.

I'm tempted to visualy revamp 'tomb' to the haunted house theme if it wern't for the fact that i couldn't share it online here. And thats half the fun, shareing it with you guys.

With two dungeons and hoping to find an outdoor 'snow witch' expansion at my local game shop... l8trz

You might want to look into some similar games with horror themes-
The Testimony of Jacob Hollow
House of Horrors

more different, but also good games:
Dracula's Revenge
Frankenstein's Children

Dungeoneer: aka "Dungeon Keeper"
Long ago there was a wonderfull pc game called "Dungeon Keeper" where you managed an army of monsters while exploreing the underworld for resources. All the while an army of invaders keep approaching to work against you. This sounds incredibly similar to the gameplay description of Dungeoneer. The down side of this perspective is that each player as a hero plays against one another instead of against a single dungeon keeper. Then you have what might seem like an underdeveloped trade/resource system for the dungeon lord.

I honestly believe that with a few tweaks to the graphics and gameplay that this game could be repackaged as "Dungeon keeper" the card game and due to saturated market recognition, SELL. Add in better rules for combineing expansion and Voomp. More sell. Personaly I like the idea of either square or hexagon tiles. But thats just me.
