Boss Monster is a better game than you'd expect given its heavily pandering marketing. Once you've gotten over the jokes and card art, it's still fun to arrange a death gauntlet. I don't care for the "screw you" nature of some of the spells, but the heroes aren't especially menacing on their own, so what's a boss monster to do?

The expansion (packaged in a Game Boy-looking box, not to be confused with Boss Monster 2) does give the heroes more tools to get through tough dungeons, but it's still rare for a player to be eliminated due to wounds. Maybe the sequel changes that.
