Talkin' about havin' gloom: let's all play Gloomhaven!

Sorry, JP, I spaced on who was going to be joining this session before you showed up.

The bandit commander/necromancer is dead, and the next group has the option of investigating the mysterious Gloom he spoke of (scenario 4) or dealing with a group of bandits who have been attacking caravans (scenario 3). My retirement goal involves missions in crypts, if anybody is interested in running those.

The new save is uploaded to the google drive as TS_Save_10.json. I added a bag above curses/blesses/etc to toss removed event and treasure cards into, in case we ever need to reference them. The board to keep track of unlockables is underneath the map. Both event decks are set up below the shop (remember, you'll only shuffle them when you add new cards).

We grabbed the treasure in scenario 2. Don't know if the mod will keep track of that if anybody decides to replay it.

No worries I was running late anyway. Gave me plenty of time to play Spelunky for... 4 hours?! I need to go to bed.

The Gloomhaven early access app is on sale on Steam and they recently added coop, if anyone’s interested in playing that way. Only some classes available and it doesn’t recreate the tabletop campaign yet.

I was considering picking it up. Does anyone know if it's any good? Seems well-reviewed.

It was my introduction to the game! I like it a lot. I had been a little nervous about my KS game buy-in and a few rounds in the app set my mind at ease as to whether I'd enjoy it once it arrived. It plays very well, it's pretty. It's just not done. Only the base classes and one or two others, the campaign isn't exactly a campaign (you open up more maps but you're not actually identifiably in Gloomhaven itself, ever, just chasing jobs in the hinterlands). But they seem to add stuff pretty frequently.

The digital version of Gloomhaven seems like it'll be one of the better board game ports once it's out of early access.



Anybody interested in venturing into the Crypt of the Damned with me sometime this week? I can't do it on Tuesday, but am otherwise free any day after 4:30PM Pacific (or whenever on Wed).

I'm up for Wednesday, though I'll happily leave my spot to anyone else if enough people want to join, since I've been in both maps so far.

I mean, I could just start later or, y'know, actually remember who signed up this time, if you have things you need to do.

OK so for 5 p.m. PST Wednesday (9/23) we have:

1. Sarc

It'd normally be a good time and day, but this week doesn't work for me. I'm still looking forward to joining in a future session.

I still think it was funny that I got poison-trapped just as I was passing out. I could probably give it another go sometime this weekend.
