  • Great strategic dungeon adventure for an ongoing game!

    Excellent game for someone who consistently wants to get play an ongoing campaign of a game, either solo (you can play alone) or with a group of friends (up to four can play). The primary mechanic of the game produces very strategic gameplay- basically on your turn you can play two cards, which have an action on the top half and an action on the bottom half (movement, attacks, disabling traps, healing, etc)... and you are only allowed to use the top of one card, and the bottom of the other card, which means you are always having to pick carefully since every choice means you're not getting to choose something else. Careful choices will yield success as you battle your different hero character types through a variety of dungeons, built out of a pile of interlocking map parts. The bigger draw about what makes Gloomhaven special is the campaign. Each game you play is only one battle in the ongoing, overarching game, as you gain money and level up your characters over the course of multiple sessions of gameplay, and eventually achieve character goals that allow you to retire your current character and unlock new material for the game. Aside from sealed envelopes with mystery content, there are six starter classes to choose from but another TEN that are sealed in boxes. I do not know what they all are, as we have not played enough yet to unlock more than one, but we found it exciting to experience having a game where I don't know all the surprises it has to unveil yet. So if you enjoy dungeon crawl or strategy games, and want to play it with a group for a long time, enjoy some light story elements stringing together your dungeon adventures, and slowly but surely unlock secret boxes and envelopes with more content, this is a solid recommendation. Caveats- I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who is looking for a casual party game with pals that they might pull out every couple of months, due to the learning curve of the game and the ongoing campaign nature. I found it best to run a solo session myself to get at least somewhat familiar with the rules before I played with my friends, rather than get stressed out trying to play the game straight out of the box with the rulebook. This is the internet, so if you want more information use google, but try to avoid spoiling yourself. I find the Gloomhaven community is pretty good overall about keeping things vague (ie referring to unlockable classes by their symbol rather than their names, ie "three spears", "sun", or "two-minis" class, to avoid spoiling).

    This game has a steep learning curve, but is well worth the time. Think of it as a D&D lite without most of the role play elements. Very well thought out and will provide hundreds/thousands of hours of fun for our friends. P.s. Try not to drink too much when learning the rules, lots to remember lol
