Have played about 15 hours so far and it has been excellent! I very much enjoy the game play - it is streamlined without losing the fun and flavor of the first edition! I can't wait to see Descent get back on the table again! We really enjoy getting through a full quest in 2 hours! Everything just plays so much quicker.

One of my favourite board games of all time. Few other games in my collection have had the staying power of Descent. I still want to play it just as much as I did when I bought it on the day it was released. It's that good.

It's the game I was waiting for to scratch my dungeon crawler itch, which I've had ever since I was a kid playing HeroQuest. It is so much fun and it plays relatively quickly. There is so much awesome stuff in the box and the Quest Guide is huge. The minis are AMAZING. You can't go wrong with this game.

I sat on the fence for a long time on this one thinking things like, "i already have a dungeon crawler i never have time to play", and "it looks too complicated". Well, i am happy to report that i feel this game needs to be in every home of a dungeon crawler. It has the easiest setup compared to any of my other dungeon crawlers (except dungeon run). And it is simple to play and teach to friends.

I own the first 2 expansion for this game.

Always interested in finding like minded players, around Ottawa/Gatineau, to play this game with. I can play as either a Hero, or the Overloard. Feel free to toss me a PM anytime.

The sixty-four-thousand-dollar question: Descent - first or second edition? Although the first edition is fun, the second edition improves this game in many ways: The rules have been purged. You now can explain this game in about 15 minutes. The playing time has roughly been halved. And best: The Overlord now is "allowed" to win a game without destroying the played scenario by a sudden end for all players.
Play the campaign to experience all advantages of this game.

A tense and tight game, that involves a party of heros battling against the evil overlord. A fantastic dungeon crawler, which is a game of tactical miniatures rather than a light adventure. Important to take every advantage against your opponent, and make every move count (as the overlord can draw more power cards each turn).

Lots of rules and very unforgiving for new players, but definitely worth the investment. The scenarios vary in length, and given how important each move can be, this game does lend itself to analysis paralysis (which can result in a scenario taking 4+ hours).

Overall it is an excellent game and has a great theme.

Important to play close attention to the victory conditions. Most scenarios are a race to the finish.

Quicker to play than its predecessor, and really deep. One of the best dungeon crawlers around. The campaign mode is very interesting and offers a lot of replayability.

A quicker more streamlined version of Descent. Just what this game needed! Love the dice pool mechanic and the overall theme. The game was easy to learn and teach. Set up takes a little while, but after labeling and sorting with a proper storage solution, set up should take much less time.
