"Complex but worth it"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I purchased Gloomhaven after seeing so much fuss being made about it online. It's a steep learning curve but there are a tonne of resources available to assist new gamers to learn the rules.

The box is enormous weighing in at around 10kg, the number of scenarios and variations means there are 100+ hours of content (with expansions in development currently).

Game wise it relies on attack modifier cards instead of dice which makes things more interesting and a scaled difficulty level depending on numbers of players and experience.

A final note this is a ‘legacy’ game which means if you play the campaign you make permanent changes to the game (non-removable stickers, scrapping cards etc) so it can only be played through once.

"I’m in love with this game!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I’m in love with this game! The most complex game I have ever played is monopoly (which is ok until I start to loose). I’m a RPG video gamer and when I saw I could get a RPG type game in table top format which was co-op, I had to give it a go. Played our first game on Sunday, it took lots of organising, 5 hours to set up and play. Second scenario a couple of nights later (another 3 hours) and a failed attempt, we are having so much fun, this is going to keep us occupied (and the housework undone) for a very long time.

Description

Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for travelling to this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.

This is a legacy game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

Essentially, every turn a player will play two cards out of their hand. Each card has a number at the top, and the number on the first card played will determine their initiative order. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat.
