Dungeon Drop: Dropped Too Deep is an expansion to the 1-4 player cube-dropping game Dungeon Drop. It will launch on Kickstarter on October 6.
In the solo mode of Dungeon Drop, you first select your hero and their class, and assign them a Quest card. Then, you add the staircase cube, 2 relic cubes, and your hero meeple in the cube mix inside the box, and drop all the cubes together onto your playing surface. The grey cubes represent pillars. You will have to mentally connect three pillars in a triangle to form a room that contains your meeple, and replace these cubes with pillar tokens. Then, you loot the cubes you found inside the room.
In the next phase, you place large cubes inside the box, draw 4 at random, and drop them in the dungeon. By using your hero abilities, you may flick cubes to change their position. Then, you move inside a new room by switching one of your pillar tokens with a new pillar cube to form a new room and collect loot again. Rooms may also contain monsters which deduct points from your health. You repeat these steps until either there are no cubes left in the box, or your hero dies, or you loot the room that contains the staircase and exit the dungeon. If you successfully exit, you determine how well you did according to the dungeon level requirements.
The upcoming expansion introduces a cooperative mode, and adds new heroes, monsters and relics.
