Boss Monster - The Dungeon Building Card Game
Inspired by classic video games, Boss Monster challenges you to become a villain, build a dungeon, lure in adventurers… and destroy them!
Players compete to see who can lure and destroy the most adventurers. But beware! You must make your dungeon as deadly as it is attractive, or the puny heroes might kill you first!
You are the bad guy!
No more playing the puny heroes
In Boss Monster you're no longer stuck playing those boring old heroes, delving the same old dungeons. This time you get to be the bad guy at the end of the dungeon, luring in hapless heroes and slaying them.
Stock your dungeon with deadly traps and monsters
To slay those heroes you've got an arsenal of traps and monster at your disposal. Build out the Minotaur's Maze to slow heroes down, or uncover a Bottomless Pit to catch them unawares. Every game is different with 75 Room cards to employ.
And check out the amazing expansions!
- The Next Level
- Rise of the Minibosses
- Tools of Hero-kind
- Crash Landing
- Implements of Destruction
Use Rooms and Spell cards to build you dungeon and slay heroes

Each Room has a type, a damage value, a treasure value, and a special ability.

Inspired by a love of classic video games, Boss Monster: The Dungeon Building Card Game pits 2-4 players in a competition to build the ultimate side-scrolling dungeon. Players compete to lure and destroy hapless adventurers, racing to outbid one another to see who can build the most enticing, treasure-filled dungeon. The goal of Boss Monster is to be the first Boss to amass ten Souls, which are gained when a Hero is lured and defeated - but a player can lose if his Boss takes five Wounds from Heroes who survive his dungeon. Playing Boss Monster requires you to juggle two competing priorities: the need to lure Heroes at a faster rate than your opponents, and the need to kill those Heroes before they reach your Boss. Players can build one room per turn, each with its own damage and treasure value. More attractive rooms tend to deal less damage, so a Boss who is too greedy can become inundated with deadly Heroes. Players interact with each other by building rooms and playing Spells. Because different Heroes seek different treasure types, and rooms are built simultaneously (played face down, then revealed), this means that every "build phase" is a bidding war. Spells are instant-speed effects that can give players advantages or disrupt opponents. As a standalone card game with 150 cards, Boss Monster contains everything that 2-4 players need to play.
Not suitable for children under 3.

I've only played it with one other person, and it didn't take long to get through one session. Roughly 30 minutes? Maybe a little more. (We like to stop and read ALL the card descriptions.)
If you're debating on whether to get this, you need to ask your level two questions:
1. Do I like the fantasy video game style?
2. Do I have friends to play this with?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, then you should get this game. If you answered no to the first question, that's OK, because this is a card game, and it only gets its inspiration from games. Get it feeling secure in the knowledge that you will enjoy playing this game.
Boss Monster is used for a regular game-night group that often plays DND but looks for alternative games. Boss Monster is great for 2 to 4 players! Most cards have a person total on the bottom for when you choose to play with two, three, or four players. This helps to specify which cards are for bigger groups, which is very useful when only playing with two people.
The overall premise of this game is to build a dungeon that lures npc characters in, which will be their demise. Once you have gathered the most soul tokens, you win. This game can be hard to understand early on, so read thoroughly and play a practice round or two so you understand before just diving in.
I highly recommend buying this game if you like playing games with friends! We play a lot of different things, and this is one of my favorites!
Basic concept: You are a monster. Your goal is to build a dungeon and lure heroes to their doom. You win when you either get hit by 5 attacks from heroes, or you gather 10 hero souls, from which you collect when they meet their untimely demise in your strategically crafted dungeon. *insert evil laughter here*
There is a bit of a learning curve, and takes a few run throughs to get a hang of things, but definitely well worth the time invested. Once you get the hang of it, this turn-based card game delivers. My first time playing I lost (to my non-geeky wife, nonetheless)... but for the first time in my life playing a game, I wasn't sad and didn't care if I won or lost, because it was so much fun playing!
Since then, I have bought it for myself, and gifted to multiple friends, and have yet to find someone who doesn't like the game. Kudos to the creators and looking forward to playing the expansions!

Players build their dungeons by using room cards (with each room having a different ability and damage count) and spell cards (which help you manipulate things like whose dungeon the heroes). This combination works well but over the few games we have played so far we have found that you have limited chance to draw spells cards and can often go through a whole game without drawing any besides the ones you begin with.
An easy-going game that works well with 2 players. We both enjoy Boss Monster, but it does miss that thing that makes us crave to play it again like some of the other board games we have, and as such it is not picked all that often.
It is a nice looking set and the cards are a high quality with the nostalgic nods to older games really looking great.
the rules take a little time to wrap your head round however the website has a good video demonstrating how to play so its easy to pick up.
after that its really quite self explanatory. fun game, fun concept, fun pictures, great strategy game.
highly recommend :)
Quality of the game - cards started to delaminate in the edges after very few times played, so not a good quality for the price paid. Manufacturer should make cards stronger.
