One thing which I have being doing, with great success, is seeding the Explore cards into the Loot deck. By this I mean that after X number of Loot cards, then an Explore card appears. For now, I have been playing with one Explore card after every fifth Loot card, but this can be adjusted to your tastes.

When preparing the explore cards, I take all of the Dungeon Boss specific cards (there are six per boss, if memory serves correctly) and add six more from the generic deck. I shuffle that into a pile of twelve cards and then seed my Loot deck with those.

Not only does this allow those amazing Creep models to make an appearance, but it also allows for the Explore cards to actually be meaningful, and can add a lot of flavor and theme to the dungeons.

That's a great idea! I've always looked at the explore deck and thought it under used. My group never tend to use the explore action either as they fear the creepers..
Adding this to the house rules, thankyou!

I've moved over to Arcade beta rules in my games, so no more explore cards for me.

Nice idea though, adds more use for the cards.

I am unfamiliar with these rules. do they not use Loot cards?

There's a beta called Pet Parade out now that incorporates the creeps. If thats what they were referring to.

They use Loot cards, but not explore cards.

But with this in place you COULD use explore cards.

I'm thinking it might get too crowdy with the explore cards added. There's already plenty of stuff happening with the Plot deck and Challenge deck.

But I guess it costs nothing to try the Explore deck variant too.

Oh, I did not realize that they had these things. I have long since stopped following anything to do with the beta tests.
