Summary: I was surprised that I didn't dislike Dungeon Lords. I'm not normally a fan of worker placement, and that's half the game. Nor do I love optimization puzzles, which is the other half. But the theme weaves together the complex ruleset, so I can look past the design and enjoy the experience.
Dungeon Lords is a great game...once you learn how to play.

Summary: I'll start off by saying that Dungeon Lords is one of the most complex games I own and that it can be very difficult to explain to people who have never played it before and they can end up getting overwhelmed. That being said it's also probably one of the funnest games to play.
As a fan of Dungeon Keeper; I'm tickled pink by the homage to the original PC game; but don't let the 'cute' graphics fool you. There's a serious game here, with quite a lot of thinking required.

Summary: I like this game. As a fan of Dungeon Keeper; I'm tickled pink by the homage to the original PC game; but don't let the 'cute' graphics fool you. There's a serious game here, with quite a lot of thinking required.
Summary: Dungeon Lords is a very hard game to teach and learn. I would recommend giving a very brief intro and then jumping straight into the game. Even for a decent player, it can take 5-6 games to completely learn how to play Dungeon Lords.
Summary: Opening the box of dungeon lords can be a little overwhelming. There is a lot of cardboard to punch out, everything has a color or a symbol on it and there is also a ton of wooden pieces as well as the cute little imps for the ladies.
Conclusion: I found dungeon lords to be a very good game indeed. Massive game with lots of plots and quests and kept me playing for hours and hours. Quite a strange storyline, but very intense and loads of action along the way, from killing goblins to snakes to demons, all in all fantastic value for money if...
