I would say it is fairly rare, but it seems to sell for about $8-15 at auction.  

I myself picked up a very nice, unused one for about $10 which I have safely set aside on the bookshelf . . .  only, I plan to put it to good use someday.  I have decided that it is the perfect game to introduce my daughter to TSR and (later) RPG's.  Nice and simple with a cool fold-out gameboard.  I even think I could convince my wife to play (maybe . . . )

Just about 4 more years to go . . . then it won't be Near Mint for much longer. . .   8)

I introduced my Grandson to D&D through a PS2 game (Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance) a couple of months ago and we started playing Dungeon a few weeks ago. It is fun for both of us. I replaced the silly player markers with miniatures and that adds a little bit more realism for him than the little thingies that came with the game. He is 8 and pretty well understands what is going on. The other Grandson is only a bit over 1, so it will be a while before he is ready to mash monsters....

The granddaughter is 6 and will (hopefully) soon be playing too, but right now she is into playing with miniature plastic animals (mostly horses), dolls, and Barbi's Horse Ranch Game on the PS2. Not much interest there for me....  :roll: Although I must the Barbi Game looks like a lot of fun for her. She grins nearly the whole time she is playing that game. She has always been in love with horses though, so I am sure that has a lot to do with it. She also rides horses at her papaw's farm in the country and has been since she was less than a year old.

Anyway, Dungeon is easy to learn (It must be for me to get it) and fun for the youngun's too. I was lucky and picked one up for about $10 plus shipping.... most times I see them get up to $30 or more for complete and mint copies. The one I have is missing a few monster cards, 2 -- of those little white counters, and a couple of treasure cards, but there is still enough left for us to play the game without much trouble. I hope to get another copy of the game soon so we can have all of the cards before the Granddaughter starts playing. 8)

Thanks guys.  I think I have a copy of W&W somwhere around here.  

That is an excellent idea!  I think I will use it and my Dungeon box to play with my daughter.  She loved (surprisingly) the Dungeon game.  The idea of using minis is one that I had not considered.  What an excellent idea!  Thanks!!

I do have a concern regarding the minis with kids.  I think it is time to start a new thread though.....

For my kids (10 and 6) I'm using Cardmaster.

They love the turning of the cards and the dungeon slowly forming just before their eyes.

And they have a distinctive approach - the older loves to play a magic user, while the younger prefers a fighter.

I'm 38 and feel as young as a spring chicken. Hack up a little phlegm and stretch out the scars and kinks in the morning, and' I'm ready to go! Age is all in the mind. It helps to have a 28 year old wife, though.

In my mind I still feel 18, but 12 years of football & baseball and 15 years of hockey all starting to catch up to me physically. :evil:

30 with a 23 year old wife is good also.

40 here, but alive and kicking (7 years of football and martial arts in the background, ex officer of the italian mountain troops).

Seems we are definitely a bunch of Lords of the Middle Age. 8)

Ah, and no wife - resolved this kinda problem already. I don't believe in property, just fair use... LOL

I'm 33 and my wife is 31.  

I have dark hair, green eyes and am 5' 8".



. . .  Back to the subject of Games for Young People . . .  Dungeon! is a great choice, but I figure I will have to work up to it . . . as it is, my daughter is only 1 year old so I am stetching it hoping that I can somehow even get her to play Warlocks and Warriors by age 5.  

I remember that I played tons of Dungeon! as well as Escape From New York, Viking Gods, Saga, Vampyre and They've Invaded Pleasantville.  All those are on my list to play.  Board Games just aren't appreciated much anymore, but they were always one of my favorite things to do with Family and Friends and no one makes any decent ones anymore.  So I am gathering unused copies of all the mini-games which I will put to good use . . . someday.
