This is the first expansion for Gloomhaven featuring twenty new scenarios that take place after the events of the original Gloomhaven campaign which involve one new character class the Aesther Diviner and her attempts to prevent an approaching calamity. The accompanying scenario book breaks these scenarios up across multiple pages to create more dynamic and surprising encounters. The expansion also features seven new monster types (including three new bosses) and fourteen new items.
Board Geeks Review: Welcome to the choo-choo hype train - grab your snacks - leave your husbands/wives/whatever identifies - and hop on the 2017 boardwagon because it is time to TALK ABOUT GLOOMHAVEN. This legacy game drags you and your friends into a world beautifully painted by designer Isaac Childres, jam-packed with features such as a thematically rich story, compelling art-work and mechanics crisper than if you had to masticate the remaining quarter of the Pringles carton in one go... Whew. With roughly 100 hours worth of game-play for the whole campaign, you and your friends will constantly be sent into grueling dungeons, slaying un-dead, bears, dragons, elementals, and __spoiler__. Not to mention that there is a strong community revolving around the game where users take great lengths of care in giving spoiler warnings regarding the content they are going to discuss. And, in times like these where the broader collective residing on the internet come together and treat the game experience for others with such care and respect... well that should say something. Board Geeks would only recommend the game to you if you are responsible playing it, because it is highly-addictive, drawing your friends together for that weekly session with a fierce, relentless socio-dynamic gravitational pull coupled with a voice in your head screaming "play me, unlock my secrets, bicep curl me I'm 10kg!"
