- FYI, according to Game designer Dave Kosak, “the Kobolds & Catacombs Dungeon Run will stay as it is, with the current bosses and loot. But remember, the plan going forward is to include unique mission content with every expansion, so Other Cool Stuff (™) is in the works. Response to the Dungeon Run has been very positive, so it’s likely we’ll revisit that style of gameplay again in future sets.”
