A kid-friendly memory game with a fantasy element? That’s how Dungeon Escape markets itself. It’s a game for 2-4 players aged 5+ and plays in around 10 minutes.

The gameplay is super simple. Match 2 cards, remove the pair from the table. Just like every other memory game you know and love. Added on to this is a battle mechanic where you can attack an opponent by matching two battle cards. Battles are resolved with die rolls in addition to a hero’s stats on its card. If the attacker wins they can steal a card from the defender. If the defender wins they keep the card and play continues. The player with the most cards at the end wins.

The art looks beautiful, and the added mechanics make it a memory game to replaced other memory games in a collection. I love the idea of it, and may just have to get a set to replace all the Cars, Princess, Toy Story, etc… Memory games we have lying around.
