Get the improved version of Gloomhaven, a cooperative card-driven game of combat in an expansive campaign. 1-4 players, 30 min/player.
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 traveling 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.

I love this game and its my second copy. I needed another copy to keep track of the different parties and for $99 it was great! Shipping was just a little slower but $50 dollars was worth it. There was only a two day difference from Amazon.
You don't have to hear about it from me to know that this game is amazing. It is everything I wanted in a game (basically D&D without the DM) and even though I have only played it a few times, it is amazing. The best thing about this game is that I got it from Game Nerdz. It was cheaper than anywhere else, included free shipping (with a 20lb box) and it arrived on time in excellent condition. I was worried at first about ordering from a website I was unfamiliar with, but now I am only going to order my games from this website. Seriously, great job guys. Also, thanks for responding to my concerns over email so quickly. I hope you get a ton more orders.
Brilliant!! Deserves all of the praise given. Beautifully designed. Massive!!
Perfectly shipped by Gamenerdz. Highly recommended.
Great game does take a lot of time to play though.
Shipping was fast and on time. Thanks.
If I could give one game in my life 6 stars this would be it. I doubt I will ever play a better game suited to my tastes in my lifetime.
Gamenerdz shipped the game to me pretty quickly once it was available and it arrived in great condition.
Now, about the game. If you like RPG's with a lot (and I mean a LOT) to do, then you'll like Gloomhaven. Yes, there are a lot of rules, but they're simple and make sense. They're not that hard to understand at all. The combat system is something that I've never seen before, but it's loads of fun and really makes you think. The game is colorful, the components are fantastic for what the game is (player characters are miniatures, NPC's are standees), and the art is fantastic. Highly recommend.
Best board game to come out in a long time! If you like RPGs, you will love this game.
