In some non-New York Toy Fair 2017 news, the Dungeon Master project by Ymarilego is the latest one to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The project is a tabletop game where you create your own dungeons to play in with others. The project proposes enough bricks for 8×8 stud wide rooms with the lairs being 16×16 studs wide. There are three hero minifigures as well as six minifigures of monsters and villains for you to combat.
This project was supported heavily by the tabletop game community including Wil Wheaton and Geek and Sundry, just to name a few. It now joins The Blues Mobile and SEGA Classic Arcade Machines as the projects to reach the First 2017 Review Stage.
