Board & Card game for 2+ players.
Based on the Dungeons & Dragons Underdark Setting.
Quest for the Underdark Maps

The Map is a Track 40 spaces long with start & end spaces.

Each player has a Pawn of a unique color to represent his Adventuring Party
20 & 6 sided dice are needed.

You control a party of adventurers (initially six).
Adventurers are also referred to as Characters.
Characters differ in Race and Class.
There are 3 Class types:
Mage, Rogue, and Fighter.

Players share a common Event Deck.
The deck has 2 types of cards: Aid cards & Foe cards
There are 2 types of Foe cards: Traps & Creatures
There are 2 types of Creatures: Monsters & Intelligent
Aid cards include: Prestige Classes, Weapons, Armor, Items, One use Items, & Spells.
Every Aid card is specific for either Mage, Rogue, or Fighter Characters. 

Return your party to the Start space with the Underdark Maps. 

Roll on the Terrain table for each space on the board.
Each player gets 6 characters.
Roll on the Random Adventurer table to generate your party.
Each player is dealt a hand of 7 cards.
Players roll high on 1D20 to see who goes first.
Players pawns start in the start space.
A Token representing the Underdark Maps is placed in the End Space.
Note: the Start Space is a 'safe' area: No battles, no traps, no Navigation rolls.

Phase I
Players take turns moving their Parties towards the End space.
Phase II
The party that reaches the End space first gains possession of the Underdark Maps.
To win, that party must turn around & move back to the Start space.
This party becomes known as the Map party.
Opposing Parties can now move in either direction.
If an opposing party defeats the Map party in battle, they gain possession of the 
Underdark Maps and become the new Map party.

Each space of the track will be one of several types:

If your party is in a Barrier space roll 1D20.

Add 1 for every Rogue in your party.
On a roll of 10 or less your party cannot find its 
way and you may not move in Move Phase.
If your party is in a Danger space roll 1D20.
This is the Danger Roll.
Add 1 for every Rogue in your party.
On a roll of 10 or less you must discard 1 random party member.

Move your party 1D6 spaces.

(Forward in Phase I or either way in Phase II.)

If you are in a space not occupied by an opposing party, any 
Opponent may play a Foe card on you. 
If your opponent plays a Trap card on you roll 1D20.
This is the Trap Roll.
Add 1 for every Rogue in your party.
On a roll of 10 or less you must discard 1 random party member.

If in Move phase you landed on an opposing party, or an opponent played a 
Creature Foe on you in Encounter Phase, you must fight.
Determine the Force Total of your Party…
Force Total = 1D20 + (# of Party Members + # of Attachments) + 
(2 X # of Spells & One use Items you play from your hand) 
You may only play one Spell per Mage in your Party.
Note: the 1D20 is referred to as the Battle Roll. 
Determine the Force Total of the opposing party the same way.
Reroll ties. The side with the higher total wins.
The loser must discard one random Character.
The winning party gets the Attachments of the discarded character.
The Force Total of a Creature Foe = 1D20 + Foe Level.
If you defeat a Creature draw a card. 
If you lose vs a creature, discard a random character.
At the end of the turn, discard any Foe card and 
All played Spells & one use Items.

If a character with Armor is killed roll 1D6.

On a roll of 4+ the Armor is discarded instead.
