Absolutely the best expansion you could get for Descent 2e. 38 heroes and 25 monsters for ~$20. It's a heck of a deal, even if you don't own any 1e material—just use proxy figures or chits.

It tricks my non-RPG friends into playing a pseudo-RPG. Even my girlfriend will be jumping up and down with excitement at dice rolls.

Also, the board setups seem small at first. Once you start playing, it feels huge.

I have no first edition stuff, but figure I can proxy the figures.

The amount of stuff you get for $20 is pretty damn solid.

Wow! I knew nothing about previous Decent games and was skeptical about this purchase as I dont have any of the figs. I am so glad i got it! The heros and monsters it adds are EPIC!! And it doesnt take away from the experience to use proxy figs from the base game.

Even if you do not have any of the first edition boxes. This Conversion Kit adds so much new options for the Overlord and the Heroes. If you do not want to buy proxy minis, in the file section is a pdf with the appropriate monster tokens.

The extra hero and monster options MAKE Descent 2nd edition so much better than the base game just by adding variety AND covering the basic archtype heros (and monsters) that are lacking from the base game.

Therefore as an expansion I rate it very highly. Unfortunatly, I have mixed feelings on the game itself. See my review/comments regarding that.

If you have Descent 1st Edition, you want this. It lets you use all your heroes and monsters from 1st in 2nd.

If you don't have 1st, you should still get this. You get tons of monsters and heroes and you only need suitable minis (from Runebound, for example) or cardboards stand-ups to use them all in your game.

This is really quite a cool thing. It adds a lot of variety to both the overlord and the player choices and allows usage of the miniatures from the base set, but also can substitute in other miniatures. I have used some painted from d&d starter set as many were very similar looking. I think it is expensive for 2 packs of cards BUT on the other hand it adds such a lot of variety and as above you do not have to have the miniatures to use them. You are paying for the ideas of what the individual characters/monsters provide. Very good.

Glad to see FFG bring forward support for the heroes and monsters from first edition Descent. This product probably becomes less and less relevant as FFG slowly reintroduces the old monsters and heroes via the Hero & Monster Collections.

Best Descent 2ed expansion there is in my book.
Does not add any miniatures but expands your Hero base from 8 -> 57 (!) and your monster base from 9 -> 39 (!).

This really gives choice and variation, even though you have to use stand-ins for some monster figures. Well, we'll cope with that

Adding the 1st edition monsters and heroes is nice.
One must however, either have the 1st edition game and expansions, or rely upon proxy figurines.
In my case, I made standup proxies for the monsters - rather than ruining myself in buying proxy figurines.

Adds a lot more flexibility to the base Descent 2E game. Might not be necessary once 2E expansions come out, but for right now this is a great kit to have even if you do not have the original Descent figures (just use proxies).

The conversion kit is definitely worth getting if you have 1st edition figures lying about. It more than quadriples the available monsters and heroes. I'm pretty sure this is also worth getting even if you do not own the original figures and want to use placeholders instead. The variety is just that enormous.

Adds a lot of content and variety to the abse game. I don't have all the original miniatures but I use proxies which work well. Has many characters which can keep the gmeplay fresh for at least 14 campaigns (which each one has the estimated playing time of 20 hours). So it is probably one of the best content for value ratios for expansions.

a mandatory addition if you want some variety in your sessions. If you like the base game then you need to purchase this too. A ton more heroes and monsters. As overlord it's nice to have more options available to you.

Initial Rating: 8.0

If you like Descent 2nd Edition, this is a must buy, even if you don’t have the previous expansions of the game. For me this offers a great value as it gives you all the characters and monsters of the game for a fraction of the price (although you don’t get any miniature but they are easily proxied). As overlord it is great to have more monsters to choose in my campaigns with open group monster.

It is even more valuable if you do have the previous expansions as it gives new life to them.
