Dork Tower Boxed Game
From the Publisher...
Now you can play John Kovalic's Dork Tower characters . . . as they play their characters . . . in a magical quest for the ultimate prize where no strategy is too low, no player too Munchkiny, and no rule is safe!
Adventure through the land of Aurora, smiting monsters and growing in power, until you are strong enough to challenge the evil wizard in his tower. Slay him and you win . . . fail, and be cast from the heights . . .
This is a fast-moving game for 3 to 6 players, from the same folks who brought you the wildly popular Munchkin card game and its hilarious follow-ups.
Dork Tower features a full-color game map with a 3-D central tower, over 100 monster and character disks, pretty dice, spell cards, rules, and character sheets . . . all illustrated, of course, by John Kovalic!

|This game is awesome! Apparently it is a parody of a game made in 1981 by the name of "Dark Tower", which utilized a microprocessor to act as a Dungeon Master for the game by presseing the corresponding button to the action you were taking that turn.
Dork Tower has no neat processor in the middle, but it is full of personality. You basically go around the board fighting monsters, trying to become powerful enough to assault the wizard at the top of the tower. You can use the wizard (who you fight to win the game) to evoke curses which inhibit kingdoms and players. Collect gold, buy magic items, spend xp to buy a definate roll of 6 on a single die, etc. This game is a lot of fun to play even if you are losing. Anytime I ask if friends want to play a game, that is the one that is requested. You should really check this one out if you enjouy the adventurer/hack & slash type of boardgame.
