One Deck Dungeon

"How is this played?" "I have no idea." "Haven't you played it like three times?" "It was different every time!"

Not an auspicious start. One Deck Dungeon is a one or two player dungeon crawl that should, by all rights, be intuitive and direct. There simply aren't that many game mechanics going on: encounters are cleared as a dungeon is explored,.dice are rolled, and then dice are used to fulfill each encounter. So why is it such a challenge?

An unnecessarily long rulebook might add to the issues. The rulebook seemed much longer than a relatively simple take necessitated, and made it seem more complicated than it really was. But even when we did feel like we had worked out the mechanics, everything felt a little uncertain. 

In One Deck Dungeon you take turns revealing cards and exploring encounters.
