Enhance Your Dungeon / Skirmish Board Game Experience with AI-Powered Decision-Making

Looking to add a unique twist to your Warhammer Quest board game sessions? Here is an AI-powered player prompt, designed specifically for ChatGPT. Here's how it works:

ChatGPT Prompt:

You're a warrior participating in a grid-based board game. Various monsters will appear on this board, each at varying distances and possessing different levels of strength. As a warrior, you have a unique skill that you can deploy sporadically against these creatures. Additionally, you occasionally survey the battlefield to determine if a friendly warrior could benefit from your assistance. When I input a single space character and press return, provide me with a decision on which monster to target. Also, 50% of the time, recommend either using a special skill or executing a healing action. Note: You are responsible for selecting the attack or assist action for me. However, you should not determine the outcome of these actions. Do exercise randomness in deciding whether to use a special power or a healing action in addition to the attack.

Press space and return/Enter once per character per turn.

Sample ChatGPT4 output:

ChatGPT: Attack the closest monster! Use your special skill: "Blade Fury". 

ChatGPT: Attack the strongest monster! No special skill this turn. 

ChatGPT: Attack the weakest monster! Use your healing potion on a friendly warrior.

“He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”

Caline Sandstorm is not a Crunch Box

Dang, I was going to convert my Caline Sand Storm (a "Crunch Box Clone" according to the Internets) into an MI Eliminator pedal. But the 2 clipping diodes are attached a capacitor at one end (D4/D2 => C3 in the photo), rather than 2 resistors in the schematic. So it can't be the same circuit. And it uses a JRC4588 instead of an LM833, although that's a reasonable substitution. There is very little on the other side of the PCB,

On Amazon it says "

  • Update version of classic crunch with higher operability,which brings you a almighty crunch distortion"

But a Crunch Box it is not. I didn't like the sound anyway.

I ordered the Mosky Crazy Tone, I'll see what that is.

Deck Box Dungeons to Warhammer Quest

A spreadsheet to convert WHQ characters into DBD characters.

Some people would like more enemies, more treasure items, traps and so on.
If you print out snivmaster's Warhammer Quest expansion using https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/220352/md2whq Massive Darkness/Warhammer Quest cards, you can adapt them to Deck Box Dungeons. Some flexibility is required. You could just use the store cards, for example. The card size doesn't need to match DBD.

The Massive Darkness/Warhammer Quest treasure cards can be used to set up an extra merchant, 1 DBD treasure = 50 gold (you don't get change). You deal 3 cards at a time, in addition to the 3 DBD cards, Heroes may shop at both stores, so it is easier to get a health potion when you need it.

Between Quests
There are End of Quest Bandages, Provisions, Waybread, stonebread, Firebomb, Temple, each hero gets a random 1 or 2 tokens between quests to support a "Campaign".

The Massive Darkness/Warhammer Quest enemy cards can be used, there are separate cards with enemy special abilities such as "Ambush". They use a different system of attributes which need to be translated into DBD stats. You can play existing quests by using a band of new enemies you consider equivalent to the old enemies.

Optional new enemy system
You can use the DBD system (see "Health" below), or get some extra dice off Aliexpress 30PCS 12mm D6 Acrylic Resin Dice.
I bought 25 coloured D6, allowing 1-6 hitpoints for each enemy. This gives me an enemy type for each color, I place one die on the enemy card as a reference, the other 4 can go into the dungeon as enemies. Since you have 25 enemies, you can use a party of four heroes, using D10s for treasure/health/energy.

The first person to explore a room rolls a D6, a 1 or a 2 indicates a Trap, if a Dexterity test fails, draw a trap card which takes effect.
