Deck Box Dungeons

Created by Ariah Studios

Deck Box Dungeons is a full featured dungeon crawler that includes character customization, special abilities, and collecting treasure to spend on magical items. All of the components fit into a deck box making it compact and highly portable. The free companion app and print and play quests both allow us to rebalance quests based on feedback, add new content, or even add all new game modes without the need for players to pay more.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

May Update
about 15 hours ago – Sun, May 19, 2019 at 11:11:01 PM

This is a quick one, but we're getting VERY close...

Shipping Progress

The games arrived at the fulfillment warehouses last week! We do not have an official date from Black Box yet, but it should not be long. We will post another Update when shipping begins.

App Updates

Thank you to everyone who gave us feedback so far for the app! We have already released a couple updates to fix some minor bugs and made some adjustments based on feedback. If you find any issues please let us know in the Board Game Geek forum.

The app is coming to Steam on May 29th! You can add it to your wishlist now to be notified when it becomes available.


Feel free to reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter, Board Game Geek, or here on Kickstarter with questions, comments, or concerns.

April Update
21 days ago – Tue, Apr 30, 2019 at 01:16:29 AM

Shipping Addresses Locked

Shipping addresses were locked last week and we will be sending the final shipping data out tomorrow, Tuesday April 29th. If you need your address updated message us here on Kickstarter AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or it will be too late to change. If your package cannot be delivered to you due to an incorrect address, it will be sent back to the distribution center and you will have to pay for any additional delivery charges to resend it.

App Available Now

The app is now available on both Google Play and the App Store. We will continue to update the app with adjustments to quests and encounters so feedback is welcome. Please direct any comments, questions, and suggestions to the forum on Board Game Geek. There is a general feedback thread for the app and a thread for each quest setup so we can keep things as organized as possible.

Print & Play Quests

Now that the app is available for both Android and iOS we are focusing on the first version for all of the print and play quests. Those will start rolling out this week and will be available to download from DeckBoxDungeons.com and Board Game Geek. The current print and play format is a more streamlined version of quests in the app with less randomization to cut down on the amount of setup/work needed to play. Based on player feedback we are definitely open to modifying things, but needed to start someplace. Like the app, we do plan to release updates and adjustments for the print and play quests and encounters as needed to improve them.

Shipping Progress

Games are still on the way to distribution centers so there is nothing new, but we will post another Update as soon as we know when shipping will begin.

If you have questions or comments in the meantime please let us know on Twitter, Facebook, Board Game Geek or here on Kickstarter.

It's on the boat!
about 2 months ago – Fri, Apr 05, 2019 at 02:22:47 AM

Freight Shipping Update

This is going to be a short one, but the we wanted to let everyone know that the games have official left Panda and are on the boats! The Ever Salute should arrive in the US in late April and then take another week or two to get to the warehouse. All US orders will be fulfilled from this shipment. The OOCL Japan is making its way to the UK and should arrive in early May. Orders for the rest of the world will be fulfilling from this shipment.

As May gets closer we will keep everyone updated on the final estimated shipping schedule for fulfillment.

App Testing

We are cleaning up a couple more things in the app over the weekend and plan to have another Update out next week with details for the initial testing on Google Play (the final app will also be available on iOS).

Locking Down Shipping Addresses

Now that the games are on the way we will be locking down shipping addresses and charging any remaining cards on Wednesday April 17th. PLEASE verify you have completed your survey on BackerKit and update your shipping address before then if needed. If you lost the original BackerKit email you can retrieve your survey at deckboxdungeons.backerkit.com.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding shipping you can reach us on Facebook, Twitter, Board Game Geek, or here on Kickstarter.

March Update
about 2 months ago – Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 01:34:59 AM

Production Update

Things have clearly taken longer than expected again, but there's good news! We finally received the last of the corrected MPC components on Friday and everything looks great! Final MPC approval has been sent to Panda so we should be all set on our end with manufacturing.

We also signed off on a final freight shipping plan last week. With the MPC approved and the freight plan in place we are only waiting on the factory to wrap up assembly/packing. We will update everyone when things are on the boat, but we're guessing about 1-2 weeks right now.

App Update

EARLY work in progress main menu screen
EARLY work in progress main menu screen

We are currently in the process of cleaning up art and editing quests/encounters for the app. With over 80 encounters and up to three random variations for each encounter there is A LOT to go through. Our goal is to have an beta version up on Google Play in early April for backers to check out and test before release. There will be another Kickstarter Update with more details on the Google Play beta when available.

Print & Play (PnP) Quests

Our top priority is getting the beta for the app out, but we have roughed out the PnP quest template. After we wrap up editing for encounters we will layout the PnP versions and get those up on our website and Board Game Geek. Laying those out should not take a ton of time so we do not anticipate any delays before release.

Translations

Another bonus we have been working on with the extra time from manufacturing delays is translating the game into Spanish and French. The plan is to start with the rule book and eventually offer language selections in the app as well. Because of the large amount of text involved with quests/encounters and the fact that we are still doing final editing, this will not be available for release. Longer term we will work to get card text translated and available in digital format too.

Final Rules

First off, we would like to say THANK YOU to the backers who have already started helping with translation by translating the all the rules for us! The rules in English, Spanish, and French can now be found on Board Game Geek and on the Deck Box Dungeons website.

We're close to the end!

As soon as we receive final dates for wrapping up assembly and getting loaded on the boats we will provide a date for locking down shipping addresses. If you have still not completed your survey on BackerKit, PLEASE log in and complete that as soon as possible. If you've lost your link you can still double check your info at deckboxdungeons.backerkit.com and make any changes if necessary. Use the email address associated with Kickstarter to access your survey.

That's it for now. If you have questions or comments feel free to contact us on Twitter, Facebook, Board Game Geek, or here on Kickstarter.
