Side Quest Caverns

Fight monsters, collect items, complete side quests, and survive the caverns with the most jewels!




You're nearing the end to your Quest. All that's left is to defeat the pig-faced, thief king...

But No!

They’ve lured you to the caverns and taken your hard-won gear. Until now, you’ve ignored their small-time needs. You’ve avoided their minor missions. But now, you have no choice…

You must collect the bugs, find the mushrooms, round up the chickens, and more!

You’ll also fight some monsters and collect treasures, of course!

Side Quest Caverns is a two player game of adventure and survival.

The game includes two main types of cards: Cavern Cards and Item Cards.

  • The 33 Cavern Cards have an open cavern entrance, a blocked cavern entrance or a locked cavern entrance. On their reverse side, these cards may hide monsters, characters with Side Quests, or other surprises. One of these cards is the EXIT.

  • The 36 Item Cards have the swords, keys, bombs and quest items you’ll need to survive the caverns. You also have two Hero Cards (red and green), one for you and one for your opponent. You use these cards with the two hearts (heart-shaped blocks) to track the number of shields you have.

  • Some Item Cards include Magical Items that give your Hero an extra edge!

As you and your opponent choose your path through the caverns, you fight monsters, collect items, and solve side quests. You also collect jewels and as you complete side quests you earn unique items that can help you in your journey. Trade with your opponent to help you both on your path.

Earn the most jewels to WIN!

  • Solo Game: This edition also includes improved solo game instructions. It now includes a solo path with two levels of difficulty.

About the third edition...

All artwork has been updated to be more user-friendly. Magical Items have been added, and some chests are now Enchanted. Also the reverse sides of the two hero cards include solo game paths of two difficultly levels.
