Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world
of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer
with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for travelling to
this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to
clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process they will
enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to
explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions
This is a legacy game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally
played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on
what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a
“Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a
cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an
innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on
Essentially, every turn a player will play two cards out of their hand. Each
card has a number at the top, and the number on the first card played will
determine their initiative order. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and
when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to
use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa.
Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose
cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end
up exhausted and be forced to retreat.
