And of course it isn't Descent without a campaign, right? This was the most played Descent game in my collection, aside from the base game, but that still means it was only played over the course of one long summer. Everything is still in fantastic shape.

In my opinion, Descent V1 is strictly better than V2. Unless you want to do a campaign. Because Road to Legend is mostly broken.

Condition: Box is in good condition but somehow when it was bought it ended up with the bottom half of the Well of Darkness box, was like that when I purchased it. If you would like the above bundle and this make a combined bid and I will consider it. However, I am open to trading this for The Tomb of Ice if anyone is interested.

Campaign Play, Asymmetric Competition

Wrath of the Autarch has asymmetric competition between the Autarch player and the Stronghold players. This one vs. many is a tricky pattern to manage. In player vs. player games it’s a little easier to design mechanism that allow the players to work together to prevent one player from gaining a large advantage. That isn’t an option in asymmetric games.

Fantasy Flight has a number of hybrid role-playing / boardgames that use this pattern. Usually, the sole player in the antagonistic role has more abstract tools at their disposal to create opposition. Some form of threat currency to build opposition with.

I used such a scheme in Wrath of the Autarch. The Autarch player gets points to carry out a variety schemes against the Stronghold. There were a few hurdles to making this work well: the schemes need to be interesting and impactful to the narrative, and the decision tree shouldn’t be too overwhelming.

Oh, Descent. You rascal.

We had a campaign of Road to Legend that had been going for a reasonable amount of time. Both sides were powering up.

I was the Overlord, and my opponents were smart gamers. Smart enough to identify the feats that are totally broken in Road to Legend - Spiritwalker and Rapid Fire among them. Over time, the game became less fun for me; not in terms of 'these darn heroes are foiling my plans!' but more 'well, I guess I'm not actually playing this game anymore.'

The final straw was when we drew a dungeon level where there was a demon lord in a ritual circle, surrounded by cultists. We set up the map, I laid out my figures.

Either I moved first, or the heroes spent their first turn making some attacks and getting into position. I forget. But I remember looking at the board, running through everything I do, and realizing that there was literally nothing that I could do that would change the game state at all. I had no options that could damage a hero, and there was no chance that the heroes would fail to kill everything in the room on their next turn, even if the dice happened to turn against them.

I probably stared at the board for 15-20 minutes. I finally growled something like "this isn't fun for me" and took a break in the kitchen, just a few moments before flipping the table level.

The game had just reached a point where I was no longer playing. Games live and die based on interesting decisions, and if I no longer have decisions to make, there's no longer a game.

We talked about starting it up again someday, but we never went back to that campaign, and I never touched Descent 1st Edition again. Good riddance.

Descent 2e is pretty good.

Game is in very good condition and has been verified as complete including original instructions. The two deck of cards are still sealed in factory cellophane. Tokens are still unpunched. Box does have some storage wear but overall the box is fine and serves its purpose. The cardboard box insert is still present

Starting Bid: $110
