A Warhammer Underworlds anthology

Direchasm has opened, and the war for Beastgrave is fiercer than ever. Discover the hopes, fears, and greatest battles of the many warbands who fight in the darkness in this collection of all-action short stories.

READ IT BECAUSE
Discover some of the many warbands who battle endlessly in the darkness of Beastgrave in a selection of tales that pit them against one another in desperate struggles for survival.

THE STORY
Beastgrave is starving. Poisoned from the inside by the treacherous Katophrane Curse, the Ur-Mountain forever calls warriors to its bloody depths in its desperation. Myriad warbands answer from across the Mortal Realms, some seeking treasure, others power, and yet more wishing only to kill. None find what they came for, and even death is denied those who enter Beastgrave’s halls.

Now, a new area has yawned open, the Direchasm – a place of darkness where warbands fight endlessly. Some, like Myari’s Purifiers – noble scions of the Lumineth Realm-lords – have come to purge the taint from the mountain. Others, such as The Dread Pageant, seek any sign of Slaanesh, and will stop at nothing until the lost deity is found. To achieve their goals, both must battle the likes of The Wurmspat, Rippa’s Snarlfangs and The Grymwatch. Beastgrave demands blood, but those who enter its caverns soon find themselves lost to its fury, doomed to fight an endless war.

Worker placement grows up

The worker placement genre is a crowded one, and many of us were introduced to the resource gather - spend resource - get worker cycle through the classic Agricola. Many (MANY) worker placement games later, you see the creaky folds and paths to victory through the classic game, and rarely do you have a desire to return to it.

Enter Caverna.

Caverna is classic pub grub but served by a Michelin star chef. The game has much more depth, more options to victory, more opportunities to allow for additional workers (my analogy is falling apart) and it removes any random elements caused by the random job card system.

With job removal, the game introduces a more substantial caving mechanic, where the player is tasked with first digging out the necessary paths and rooms then furnishing those rooms-often generating the same job mechanics as were available in Agricola.

Also introduced is a expedition action, which allows for more ways to generate resources using an ever growing axe; but with it comes an ordering complication as those equipped must be played last in the round.

So, if you have warm fuzzy feelings of those early days of worker placement but feel like you have grown up since those days, Caverna is an absolute must.

Great for the budding indis and laras

A good fun game though be warned you need a decent sized table to play this on especially with more than 2 players.
With a couple of ways to approach the game it gives some variety and options if things just don't seem to be going your way. The components are stunning and it's a definite solid 5 star game and shows why its won so many awards.
