Oh nice! I played the crap out of this when I was younger, my dad's copy was old and tatty even then, as far as I know it's still about the place somewhere, barely holding together. We even picked up an Advanced Dungeon version at some point which was pretty cool too.

God I remember playing this with my older brother and his friends when I was a kid. The box cover just evoked so much fun in my little brain

Lots of nostalgia for this one. I'm interested to see if there will be any major changes.

Ha! That's great news. I used to play this for hours with my cousin. I was debating finding an old copy to play it again, but I wasn't sure about dropping 50 smackers on an old beaten-up copy on eBay. I'm glad to see it's getting a re-release!

They finally got arund to putting up, on the WotC website, the details:

Picked this up (along with Ticket to Ride) for our Solstice gaming night. Good stuff if a bit simple. Not bad for a 20 dollar game that you can play with the kids.

I am still crazy interested in this. Any thoughts on how well it sticks to the original?
Any new Dungeon! cards/ re balancing? New monsters? New spells? different room layouts? Is everything plastic, or does anything wood/metal exist?
My cousin and I lived, *LIVED!* this game back in the day, so I'm keen to get that ball rolling again when I visit him in a few months.

I'm not too impressed with the product quality itself, other than the art. The cards are flimsy and I can see them getting torn and/or worn pretty quick. There also isn't a way provided to store them in the box. So you have to bag or wrap everything yourself. Everything is cardboard.

There's a single static dungeon layout and recommended levels for each class. The classes are based on actual D&D now (Rogue, Fighter, etc.) rather than the Hero, Superhero of the original game. There's enough character tokens for 2 of each class. It took us about an hour with two players.

It'll be interesting to see if they release expansions or additions. The game system itself seems scalable to where they could add maps, classes, monster & treasure cards. They've suggested some variants/house rules too for a change of pace : http://www.wizards.com/DnD/Article.aspx?x=dnd/news/20121019
