Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion Is Out

If you are a fan of Gloomhaven, or tabletop games then you should be excited that Cephalofair Games has released Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, and it is available at Target!

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone adventure campaign that takes place before the events of the #1 rated board game* Gloomhaven. The game includes four new characters — Valrath Red Guard, Inox Hatchet, Human Voidwarden, and Quatryl Demolitionist — that can also be used in the original Gloomhaven game.

The game also includes 16 monster types (including seven new standard monsters and three new bosses) and a new campaign with 25 scenarios that invites the heroes to investigate a case of mysterious disappearances within the city. Is it the work of Vermlings, or is something far more sinister going on?

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is aimed at a more casual audience to get people into the gameplay more quickly. All of the hard-to-organize cardboard map tiles have been removed, and instead players will play on the scenario book itself, which features new artwork unique to each scenario. The last barrier to entry — i.e., learning the game — has also been lowered through a simplified rule set and a five-scenario tutorial that will ease new players into the experience.

Now for those of you who know anything about Blacklist Games, the publisher, you will know that the Sadler brothers are known for their co-op card driven miniatures games. That has become Blacklist's bread and butter, so I was a bit surprised to learn that the master of skirmish games David Thompson was designing for them...I simply could not wrap my brain around how that was possibly going to work.
