Three of my gaming buddies own Gloomhaven. None have yet played it. We have just lined up a regular 4 player group night with the intention to play through legacy games we don’t get to play with our normal, drop in drop out mixed numbers gaming group.
Having watched the Rahdo Runs Through of Gloomhaven, I have not been so keen or excited to play a game in . . . . . memory! I don’t have any time or inclination to play a full on role playing game but wow, the setting reminds me of my first ever CRPG and pen and paper D&D setting - Pool of Radiance. City in the middle of hostile borderland territory, a group of heroes as the hope for the city to survive and thrive . . . .
Curses though, we cannot get started until the boss of one of our gamers returns from climbing Everest. Damn you, big mountain!
