Gloomhaven, Cephalofair and Isaac Childres’ epic legacy game, created a huge buzz when it was released. Snatching the throne of BGG’s Top 100, this rich and absorbing game has dominated so many tabletops since it landed.
But what happens when the 90+ hours of campaigning comes to an end, and every tomb, dungeon and region has been explored? Fear not, brave and insatiable ones, for the rumours are true. A new adventure beckons, following on from the events of the original story.
Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles serves up a new 20 scenario campaign, introducing a new character class – the Aesther Diviner. There are seven new monsters and three bosses to fight. Also, 14 new items to aid characters in their quest to avert ‘an approaching calamity.’ There will be surprises and twists to each encounter, hinted by Childres, so brace yourselves.
There will be no Kickstarter campaign this time. Instead the expansion will go straight to retail and will be launched at Essen Spiel 2018 in October. There’s still a little time to plough through the original campaign or rest your weary sword arm.
