Gloomhaven: Does it live up to the hype? (Review by RJ Garrison)
Brandon: I was one of the original backers of Gloomhaven when it launched the first time on Kickstarter, I got it, I sorted it, bought a good organizer, which it absolutely needs, and still ended up trading it away after 3 plays due to that dense rulebook that managed to make the game even more of a fiddly, convoluted mess than it already was.

I almost finished gloomhaven and I loved the aspects of having character progression. Leveling up the character, getting new items and new skills is so much fun. It never gets boring.

Gloomhaven’s digital adaptation is a marvelous turn-based dungeon crawler
Image: Asmodee Digital. Gloomhaven digital is impressive for how it facilitates solo play, however, it’s also capable of providing a satisfying experience for a group of friends. It’s an enticing counter to the physical version, as it’s much easier to schedule an hour for everyone to hop on the PC, particularly with COVID still causing concern

Gloomhaven test - A more than solid adaptation @VGR - VideoGamesRepublic.com
Just know that Gloomhaven takes a long time to tame. The gameplay is ultra complete, precise, and offers enormous strategic possibilities that only experience, patience and your own thinking will be able to make you benefit from. The thing, is that the game is not really accessible and will still require a lot of investment to see the end of it, especially when you know that the campaign has no less than 95 missions, that the Guild Master mode generates more than a hundred and that it is also possible to play in cooperation with friends
I want to play Gloomhaven, but the box seems daunting to me
It almost needs to become the only game you play for a while if you want the most out of it, or at least a regular game group for a year or more. I'm not going to lie, I regret getting Gloomhaven. The game is definitely as good as everyone says, it's amazing. But I don't have the lifestyle to be able to get out of it what it can offer.
Everyone I know likes it. 6. Gloomhaven/Gloomhaven JOTL.

Gloomhaven Review: Is This Big Board Game Really the Best?
Our preference goes to an iOS app called Gloomhaven Scenario Viewer but there are valid alternatives available online, like Gloom.

I actually own the board game. How does it stack up? It's pretty much as faithful as a digital version of a physical game can be. They really didn't cut any corners here. If you're into complex games, Gloomhaven is a great one.
That said, I'd warn you away if you aren't into complex rules and repea...

What are your top 10 games according to BGG rankings? And how would you rank them?
**5 Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion (2020)** - It's a better version of Gloomhaven just with less stuff and a welcome streamlining of setup. **39 The 7th Continent (2017)** - The sense of discovery is so wonderful and it's a very light game mechanically. We play to see whats over the next hill.
