Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition)

  • September 13, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Matt & Anna's Happy Home

Continuing an adventure started a while back, come a join in. Room for 5 players max.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a board game in which one player takes on the role of the treacherous overlord, and up to four other players take on the roles of courageous heroes. During each game, the heroes embark on quests and venture into dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests to battle monsters, earn riches, and attempt to stop the overlord from carrying out his vile plot.

With danger lurking in every shadow, combat is a necessity. For such times, 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 awaiting you beneath the surface, you'll need every advantage you can take...

Featuring double-sided modular board pieces, countless hero and skill combinations, and an immersive story-driven campaign, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) transports heroes to a vibrant fantasy realm where they must stand together against an ancient evil.

    Hey there.

    I've actually got a friend from my other gaming group staying with me that evening. Since he's available for me to hang out with for one night only I don't want to bail on him :(.

    Since we've already got a full group I don't think he'd be able to join our Descent game. Would you guys be up for playing one or more different games that evening?

    Otherwise we might have to push it once again :(.
