With the Jaws of the lion coming out.... This means we can potentially have three gloomhavens in the top 5 of BGG.

Would that be so bad?

I don't know. I haven't played any yet. I think I might prefer the Frosthaven setting when it comes out.

The Gloomhaven-verse is dark fantasy right? That's not really my thing. Boy do I wish someone made GloomStation and made a game like this with a sci-fi theme.

Amen

It would have to be called something like Starhaven. Clearly the “-haven” suffix is the important part of the name.

That would be fun.  I still like Dark Fantasy a lot.  However, I think a lot of RPG games and Dungeon Crawling Games stick too much to Fantasy.  It'd be awesome to see it transition to space/scifi.  Even with multiple styles within it.  A campaign consisting of space missions and planet missions would be so cool. (@skurvy5 - I've wondered about creating a campaign incorporating both Star Wars Armada Game and IA to accomplish this desire.)

This would be very cool. When’s the Kickstarter?

Very cool art and theme, I actually like it more than the original

It’s like the Icewind Dale to Baldurs Gate!

Now I just need to figure out how to play Gloomhaven in time. Although Gloomhaven Lite might fit the bill better for my group.

sdirrane Supporter7 months ago | 2 points[-]

Oh wait.  Is this Gloomhaven Lite?

trentellingsen Supporter7 months ago | 2 points[-]

I dont think so. I feel like it'll be closer to a sequel to Gloomhaven. The Gloomhaven lite is Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion

Whoops!  Then that’s what I’m really interested in as well.  Gloomhaven looks really cool, but too much for the gaming I can get in given everything else I’ve got going on in my life.

They call it Gloomhaven 2.0 in the press release.

This is going to be crazy good. I’m hoping this will make Gloomhaven drop in price and maybe I’ll be able to pick up a copy.

Oooh, nice!  I may end up backing this.

I backed the first Gloomhaven KS way back when, and I was so excited when I saw the size of the box in the prototype photos. Now, it's still on my Kallax unplayed.. I definitely will jump into it some day!

I know I am. It's so exciting to see all the content Cephalofair Games is putting out recently.

I'm not familiar with them as a publisher, what else have they done besides Gloomhaven?

trentellingsen Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

It's basically just the expansion and the up and coming Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion that I'm excited for, haha.

Skurvy5 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

Should we take bets on what the expansion will be called for Jaws of the Lion? I’m going with “Teeth of the Tiger”.

Skurvy5 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

I’m not sure how they can call it an expansion, at least by my definition of what an expansion is. Do you still need the base game to play it?
