RETRO ROLE PLAYING GAME FEEL IN A COOPERATIVE DARK FANTASY BOARD GAME! DUNGEON DEGENERATES - HAND OF DOOM is a fantasy adventure board game from GOBLINKO. Blending a Dark & Dirty Old School role playing game aesthetic with an easy to learn, fast-moving & engaging board game system, DUNGEON DEGENERATES delivers the dark fantasy adventure you want, when you want it. Players choose between four adventuring Degenerates who have been imprisoned for various crimes of survival. As they make their way out of Brüttelberg into the decaying Eastern provinces of the Würstreich they must take on strange & dangerous adventures & fighting against the corruption & decadence that have set into the land. Monsters, cultists, witches, demons & wizards have taken advantage of the rot & are encroaching on civilization. As if that wasn’t enough, the Necromancer’s Hand of Doom points down on the land & disrupts the natural order with Hellish resolve.

THE DUNGEON DEGENERATES - HAND OF DOOM RULE BOOK IS ONLINE!
19 days ago – Wed, Sep 06, 2017 at 11:35:32 PM

Oh - hello! We just launched the new Dungeon Degenerates Website - haven't made a website from scratch since 2000 & it shows!

We'll be building an entire REAL Dungeon Degenerates website in the near future - but for now - the reason why this very beta version exists is because we've uploaded the Dungeon Degenerates Rule Book for your perusal! Now you can learn THE RULES before you PLAY THE GAME. Eric Radey did a fantastic job on this thing - make sure to buy him a Diet Dr. Pepper at Sloppy's Tavern in Bruttelburg.

DUNGEON DEGENERATES - HAND OF DOOM - PROOFS!
about 1 month ago – Mon, Aug 21, 2017 at 12:49:46 AM

Hello Dungeon Degenerates! Dungeon Degenerates - Hand of Doom is totally done & we've getting proofs back from the printer! This has been really exciting!

 The box is incredible! Incredible I tell you! The colors just explode & it is super-glossy & thus - durable.

 Dungeon Degenerates will shine from your shelves like a LSD light show amongst the drab, muted, photoshop paint schemes!

 The core 8 adventurers show up around the rim of the bottom of the box - along with 8 different monsters.

 We'll be using Chessex Dice in the game - these are the dice for the Dungeon Degenerates dice bags - the same that will be in each box! Look how great this thing will look on your shelf! 

 Everything else is looking good - but they're mostly the ozalid proofs - which look like newsprint. Anyhow - that's what's going on here! We got boxes to package all of the miniatures in - should be getting the miniatures from England soon as well! Dice bags are being manufactured. Man! This thing will be in your hands soon enough!

DUNGEON DEGENERATES MINIATURES UPDATE!
2 months ago – Fri, Jul 21, 2017 at 05:48:19 PM

DUNGEON DEGENERATES! IT'S TIME FOR AN UPDATE! LET'S TALK ABOUT DUNGEON DEGENERATES MINIATURES!

Here's one of the boys at Hysterical Games preparing a herd of resin-casted Goblin Dogs sculpted by Jason Fairclough. I would like to have a Goblin Dog in real life.

An Ungodly Host of Dungeon Degenerates Monster Miniatures - yet to be freed from their sprues. We're particularly stoked to have our Dungeon Degenerates miniatures sculpted & cast in Great Britain as it is the spiritual homeland of toy soldiers. Jason Fairclough's sculpting is as close to my drawing style as anything I've ever seen & it has been incredible to see him bring life to my characters. It's kind of insane actually. Thanks again to the guys in GHOUL for turning me on to Jason's work.

Dungeon Degenerates miniatures bagged & ready to go! Here they are! I am so excited to get my hands on these! Glarg! While these miniatures aren't necessary to play DUNGEON DEGENERATES - HAND OF DOOM - they ARE necessary in turning your home into a hellish replica of the Wurstreich & cannot be understated as such.

Missing is the Mold Beast. From left - Harpy, Scroglin Sentry, Goblin Chicken Witch, Goblin Dog & Moblin with mystery meat & mace. Make sure to pre-order your Dungeon Degenerates Monster Miniatures so you get them! Oh good - I found a picture of the Mold Beast & his Moulde Hose. Of note - I've been drawing variations on this fungal character for at least 20 years. His first incarnation was "Father Fungus", which I drew when living in the basement of my mom's house that had flooded & there were mushrooms growing out of the walls of the bathroom. It was just part of what was going on those days. I also made the nightmare Spider Cider in my room there - which is in the game as well.

Here are all 10 of the Dungeon Degenerates Adventurer Miniatures! From top left. Angel of Death (Kickstarter exclusive that you can still pre-order), the Hinterlander, Void Witch, Corpse Burner, Mercenary Alchemist, Vermin Hunter, Witch Smeller, Bog Conjurer, Bloodsport Brawler & the Infamous Butcher in all of their Degenerative Glory. So much character, so much flavor! 

Such an imposing cadre of grim-faced Degenerates! We're so stoked on these & are sure you will be too. Make sure to pre-order your DUNGEON DEGENERATES miniatures from the backerkit so you can get yours! We have some other miniatures news coming up & I'll let you know about them when we're ready! Excited!
