Dungeon Solitaire: Devil’s Playground

Dungeon Solitaire: Devil’s Playground is a new crowdfunding effort for a “dungeon-delving adventure game with custom illustrated cards.” It’s by Matthew Lowes with illustrations by Josephe Vandel, and is a follow-up to the tarot-like card game Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls.

A new Dungeon Solitaire game,
Where your soul is the devil’s playground …

Dungeon Solitaire is a narrative fantasy card game. With each turn you defeat monsters, disarm traps, and open doors as you delve the depths of a dark dungeon. The original game, Tomb of Four Kings, used a standard deck of playing cards, and is still available free on my website. The followup tarot game, Labyrinth of Souls, was launched with a hugely successful Kickstarter. That game has gone on to win even more fans and has inspired a series of stand-alone novels published by ShadowSpinners Press. Now we’re launching a new Dungeon Solitaire game called Devil’s Playground!

Benediction Denied

Benediction Denied: A Labyrinth of Souls Novel by Elizabeth Engstrom is the first novel in a new series ostensibly set in the world of Matthew Lowes’ Dungeon Solitaire game. The story itself is a fantastical fall into a strange labyrinth wherein the main character is slowly revealed through his self-discovery while trying, with the aid of some mysterious cards, to escape his condition. He struggles toward an ultimate ending that does not pull any punches. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

This story could be a completely standalone read, both without reference to the other volumes but also without any necessary knowledge about the game, but it is the first in a series already planned to stretch into a significant number of volumes. This is an interesting start. I’m definitely intrigued by the potential of the full series, each volume of which the author claims a particular card from the game.

I made 14 highlights.
