Heaps of play time and fun
Gloomhaven has been recommended by friends for a long time and the price point has always put me off. Nearly 10 scenarios in and we’ve already had hours and hours of play and we’re absolutely loving it, I do not regret spending over $200 for a board game knowing how much more hours of play we have to go.
Never played a board game like this before so I have no baseline to reference but.... Now I'm completely hooked! Everything from the intricate designs, the captivating diverging plot lines to the game mechanics is so impressive. It will take years to finish the campaign which is appealing and there is a good element of replay-ability after the campaign is over. Absolute value for money!
Every scenario is different and getting to use different characters is fantastic. Many hours spent searching for artefacts or solving the issue with the town water has been fantastic.
I've been looking at co-op campaigns for a little while now and after hearing about how expansive and brilliant Gloomhaven is, I took the plunge. Whilst it is overwhelming on opening the box, it is very well organized and such a fun way to satisfy my fantasy co-op need.
