WHAT IS A DEATHTRAP DUNGEON?
A deathtrap dungeon is an adventure that focuses exclusively on the players’ struggle against lethal challenges laid down by the dungeon’s designer. Deathtrap dungeons embrace a boardor
video game-like experience where the PCs are the players’ disposable game pieces with which they fight monsters, dodge traps, and solve puzzles in the game world.
WHAT IS A TOURNAMENT DUNGEON?
A tournament dungeon is a deathtrap dungeon adventure run competitively at a convention like GenCon or PAX. Each group of competitors plays through the dungeon, trying to earn as
many points as possible for their team before the time limit elapses. At the end of the tournament, the teams with the highest scores go home with prizes.
