    I still have that Dungeon game in my bedroom closet. Someone gave it to me for Christmas in the early 1980's, and I never learned how to play it.

    Dungeon rules! I played the heck out of it as a kid. All the thrills of D&D with none of the storymaking headaches. Still have my original games, although a bit worse for wear now.

    For a short time in the early 80s they ran a series of ads for the game in Marvel Comics – each was a comic strip showing the characters in perilous situations.

    Those "mini-comics" were the best, YIN. For This Anon, my exposure was through the pages of Marvel's Rom: Spaceknight. Always irked me how random each comic seemed. I wanted an on-going one-page sequential comic every month.

    Nowadays, for my sins, the artist InCase produces the medieval-fantasy web-comic "Alfie" on a weekly basis.

    For some inexplicable reaon, I never managed to find Dungeon in the stores. But I still remember those strips. From the look of it, those generic marker-pieces are a significant let-down. This was, after all, the era when any credible fantasy game worthy of the term had little miniature.

    MPC even did the Advanced Dungeons And Dragons Action Scenes for people who wanted miniatures without a game. Probably introduced an entire generation of kids to fantasy miniature modelling. This ad was a regular feature in Marvel Comics
