Just so you know, it has diverged from that considerably.

That is great to hear! Maybe it will be even better!

While I haven't had issues with CMON, they notoriously get grilled on their Kickstarters for lack of communication and missed timelines. Whereas, all of my SJGames experience on KS has been incredible, and delivered early in some instances!

Will SJGames keep CMON on target with their dates, or are you simply permitting the creative license to be used by with CMON and they are solely running the Kickstarter?

That may impact my purchase. Added, it is not my intention to be rude, just stating an observation from many of the KS's I've backed by them...and the not-so-nice comments I've seen (Ex: Arcadia Quest: Riders... ouch.). Appreciate the time and consideration for response! :)

They've licensed the Munchkin brand from us and this is their project. We will not be managing their Kickstarter campaign or their shipping.

I'm assuming this is OK to post -- please delete if not.

No way to verify it and I am not affiliated at all, but there are a few details on play available through internetting:

"Each player will pick a class known from the original card game, and delve into a dungeon, with a randomly chosen boss monster at the end. Defeating it 3 times ends the game, but you also win by getting 20 Fame points.

The entire gameplay is divided into 4 phases. First has players walk deeper into the dungeon, while increasing the dangers they may have to face. In second phase everyone can play threat cards and make some unexpected events happen and monsters appear. Third phase is what everyone waited for: fighting monsters. Powerful items and high levels help a lot here. Successful players will be rewarded, while the unlucky ones sent back to the beginning. Fourth phase means looting the dungeon and getting rewards: from stronger weapons and increased stats to Fame points."

More details would have been nice but this makes me hopeful to have elements similar to Dungeon! (one of my favorite games.)

I'm pretty sure it's ok as all this information and more was already linked to a couple posts above you in the overview that CMON released in a news release a week ago.

They are! The game is solid as well -- very recognizably part of the Munchkin brand but with new gameplay and goals. Andrea, Eric, and the CMON team have done a really nice job with it.
