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. Made in China.

"Gloomhaven is not just a game. It is both a life AND a strength training regimen in one. With that said, this RPG in a box has a lot to offer with a solid campaign and some very fun and intriguing classes. Excellent game for RPG players wanting to try something more board gamey."

"Game Kastle were great to deal with. Fast and a great price.
This is a fantastic game. Especially as an old school retired D&D player from 35 years ago, who is now a father of 3 boys who were wanting to try a tabletop RPG game."
