Word Dungeon

A single-player, dungeon-crawling word game, worthy of your finest notebook.

Word Dungeon is a simple game that you can play with nothing more than a pen, paper, and your imagination. In Word Dungeon you will be using weapons to fight monsters to win gold!

You will write down the name of a monster that you will be fighting, and then write down the name of weapons that share one or more letters with the name of the monster. By crossing out the shared letters of the two words, you can deal damage to the monster. Cross out all of the monster's letters to defeat the monster and claim your gold!

Played a modified version of this with some of my students and I think we all fell in love! I'm currently looking at how I can modify this to fit into a class.


This is a really fun game! Beautifully designed rulebook and super simple to play.

That's really kind of you! We designed Word Dungeon to a game easy enough to memorise so you really can play it anywhere without needing the rules with you.
