Super Dungeon Explore - THE UNBOXING!

It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! It's here! And it's sitting in a box right here next to me! In a box! That I opened!

Ok, deep breathe. Breathe in, Breathe out. Super Dungeon Explore has finally hit my doorstep courtesy of the Warstore. So for all you soda popping, coin slinging, deep diving dungeon explores I will show you exactally what is in this oh so magical box.

First of all it is sturdy and hefty. You will have no trouble storing your stuff in this guy. It will last for a good long time. Nice thick easy sealing cardboard.

As you can see there are nice little cardboard flaps that will tuck into the game box making for easy and reliable storage. Going a little deeper in to SDE we get past the rule book and find the dungeon tiles.
You get five double sided dungeon tiles about 12 inches by 12 inches. You also get another one that allows you to track the progress of your adventure and gives you a place where you can place the Loot, Treasure and Adventure effects. There are two styles of dungeon tile: illuminated cave and lava palace. A closer look at a dungeon tile gives you this:
At this level of the box we also see the beautiful thick cardboard counters. Lots of them. Counters for everything. All the effects!

Next up we get to the bones of the box which contains the  miniatures, cards and dice.

 Your gonna find yourself with about 45 beautifully cast plastic models that are about 32mm scale (chibi of course).

The bases are also relief stone. This is super cool especially for the non hobbiest who picks up this game. If you want to fill in any gaps in the bases or models utilizing some liquid green stuff would do the job quick for you.

The Dice that are found in the game are super high quality and truly reflect that clean arcade style that Soda Pop Miniatures is going for.
The cards have great art on them too. You get a lot of the cards since you need them for the monsters, heroes, treasure and dungeon effects.
Now that i have exhibited the content of the box for you all I want to talk a little about the rule book. I love this thing. The art in it is fantabulous. The diagrams and charts are great learning tools and the instructinos are very easy to read ( and easy to play). The thing that really caught my attention was the map of "Crystalia" in the front. While the name is reminicent of the Simpson's "Equalia"that was thought up by Lisa, it is still super sweet.

The quick referance was also a welcome page in the rule book. This is something that is not usually done to this effect. I really do feel like I opened up the booklet from a video game with this rule book. Love it.
That is the box. I will probably post a review of the game again ( even though i have the old review back from January)- Oh no! Candy look out!

Crash! Bang! Kapow!

Never mind. Guess I should have warned the Kobolds...

This Month: 
Wow. This is a huge month for gaming. So let me put the things that have been or will be released this month: 

Quarriors expansion 
Legend of Zelda: Skyward sword
Super Dungeon Explore 
Puppet wars stuff (ok late last month) 
Assasins creed: Revelatoins

And finally are you ready for this? Pocket Kung Fu. That's right the game I have been waiting for for 2 or so years and the game you have probbaly never heard of is finally being released. The creator was very thankful for my help devloping it so he even made me a character. Needless to say, as soon as i get permision once it's released I will be throwing down a review of this jive dish. 

One MORE thing! 
I saw this and thought I should share it with everyone I can. This is a deathbattle between Starscream of the decepticons and Rainbow Dash from My Little Ponies. 
Until next time all you Jive cats, this is Leaping Eagle signing off!
