To be clear. I drew a card for each card of the dungeon at its completion minus the Big Bad room.
I only acted if it was a black card from 2 to 10.
I then resolved a possible PEF. This meant I would have had four PEFs to resolve but I died on the first. I was curious so I traced my way out of the Dungeon and just kept all the PEF cards so I knew what I was potentially up against. Are you saying I have it wrong?
I thought you had reached the end of the dungeon, no more cards. When you run out of cards that's it (3 x ER unless you found another level, then that level gets it's own cards). So I have 9 cards, I draw the 9th, that's the end. I just leave, no more cards are drawn.
I don't know if I did it right or not, to be honest I was tired and confused when I got to the end.
The first bullet tells me I must move back through the cards back to the surface. This means my character retraces her route.
Then in italics it says that as I move back through the dungeon you draw a card from the unused pile - I had six cards left in the pile, so I drew one & it was a red card, so I thought, "great, it's over I made it, I got lucky with the rat ogre, but it's over."
But the last bullet confused me when it talked about leaving the cards leading out of the dungeon & re-shuffling the rest. I thought, "why?"
Then when I read Crinklechips post, I thought maybe I didn't play it right, but then I realized I used an awful lot of red cards to get to the treasure from & there were a lot of black cards in that unused deck & my party was already down to 50%.
So I can see playing either way. In the first instance which I played, you give the dungeon one last chance to throw its denizens against you, but if you are into a grim dark mindset, going back testing each room again would be an extreme survival test for your hero & might be fun to play. Kind of like, "yeah, you killed the big bad & got the treasure, now let's see if you can get out of here.
As tired as I was (I seem to tire easily these days), I'm kind of glad I chose the way I did.
Amado mio, love me forever and let forever begin tonight.

Building the Dungeon, page 84 refers to the cards used to build the dungeon as the Dungeon Deck. That's the pile of cards you drew to make the Dungeon.
First bullet point (Getting Out)says to draw a card from the unused pile, that refers to the Dungeon Deck.If you cut out before the Dungoen Deck has been used, then draw from it as you leave - the unused pile.
You build the Dungeon, then when you draw the last card, that's it.
“ First bullet point (Getting Out)says to draw a card from the unused pile, that refers to the Dungeon Deck”
I assumed the unused pile was referring to the cards that are left which are not in play i.e. not the Dungeon Deck. If you only refer to the Dungeon Deck as the Dungeon Deck in the text then it should be clear I reckon.
