Descent: Journeys in the Dark 2nd Edition
In this popular game of dungeon-delving adventure, one player takes on the role of the overlord, tasked with thwarting the heroes at every turn through the use of deadly monsters and cunning traps. Each of the other players controls a hero, and they team up to complete certain objectives dictated by a scenario. The scenario being played also prescribes the construction of the board, which is built of interlocking modular pieces to create a new dungeon every time!
With danger lurking in every shadow, combat is a necessity. When weapons are drawn, Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition uses a unique dice-based system. Players build their dice pools according to their character’s abilities and weapons, and each die in the pool contributes to an attack in different ways. Surges, special symbols that appear on most dice, also let you trigger special effects to make the most of your attacks. And with the horrors that wait underground, you’ll need every advantage you can take…
The dungeons below Terrinoth are crawling with horrible minions of the overlord player, all waiting to put an end your quest. However, not only does the overlord have access to the monsters on the board, but his forces are periodically reinforced. If the heroes don’t stay vigilant, they might find themselves quickly overwhelmed by their foes.
Are you prepared to brave the dungeons and crypts beneath Terrinoth? Gather your party, and stand together against the forces of evil!
