I was out with the family doing some errands and stopped by the closest FLGS In between stops. I had intended to get one of the various Munchkin expansions but they were all out of stock so I started looking at other stuff. I liked the details on the MageKnight board game but I also realized I wanted something I could get my kids to play with me at times. After a little more searching, I found a copy of Boss Monster 2: The Next Level on the shelf.
As you can see, the game has a very cool retro look and feel to it. Many of the characters, locatios, and details depicted on the cards bear a strong resemblance to old 8-bit NES games or characters. The game play is basically a replication of a side-scrolling dungeon exploration quest from that era. My 8 year old and I played a quick game - to satisfy his curiosity - and I am now diving in to the full rules now.
