Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion
Looked at gloomhaven and thought "Cool! but I am not ready for that commitment..." well this was specifically made for you and those who already bought Gloomhaven. Dive in and taste the world that we are all talking about for half the price and double the fun.
This offers a standalone and/or a expansion to the base game.
Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game that takes place before the events of Gloomhaven.
The game includes four new characters
- Valrath Red Guard (tank, crowd control)
- Inox Hatchet (ranged damage)
- Human Voidwarden (support, mind-control)
- Quatryl Demolitionist (melee damage, obstacle manipulation)
that can all be used in the original Gloomhaven game.
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.
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?
Game time: 60 minutes (session)
