Guild of Dungeoneering is one of those quirky games that has a charm all its own. It's simple enough to pick up and play, with all the game's mechanics spelled out and easy to follow. The hand-drawn visual style looks like it was pulled right from a kid's sketchbook. The musical interludes, though mocking and even a little crass, are an entertaining distraction. It all helps to take a bit of the sting out of a favorite adventurer kicking the bucket.

Of course, it's probably not wise to get too attached to your heroes, as they're most likely going to die … a lot. What's more frustrating is that many of these deaths will be no fault of your own. Since you don't have any control over which direction your adventures move in dungeons, sometimes you're forced to deal with underpowered heroes fumbling right into a boss fight. Even when you're in an evenly matched battle, the luck of the draw might work against you, sending your precious dungeoneer straight to the graveyard. Thankfully, as the narrator loves to point out, there's always another Chump (which is actually one of the character classes) just waiting to fill his shoes.
