Review--Dwarven Dig

Dwarven Dig! 2nd Edition BGL-0044 pub. by Bucephalus Games MSRP $49.99

Gameplay--Dwarven Dig! is a very quick moving (30-45 minutes) for 2 to 6 players, aged 8 and up. Each player controls a team of 4 dwarves, each with its own special ability. The object is for your team to "dig" across the board to the treasure tile, retrieve a treasure and exit before the other players. Of course, the mountain you dig through is inhabited by monsters which may attack you and other dwarves, which probably will.

Presentation--Much like other Bucephalus Games' products, Dwarven Dig!'s components are very heavy and high quality, there's quite a bit of heft when you pick the box up. There's also a handy storage tray to store the components. The rules are pretty compact as well, taking up only eight pages. The box is much smaller than the Kenzerco version, taking up only about half the space of the first edition.
