I apologize in advance for what is essentially an advertisement, but I speak the truth here. So, in summary, I've found that the game is very heavily weighted against the players in almost every encounter, unless the Overlord is playing to have fun and not playing to win. Me as one of the heroes didnt let the constat loosing ruin the fun, but some people just cant have fun under that condition. Andor has been designed from the ground up for coop play whereas in Descent that game mode has been tacked on afterwards. Southernman - I'm curious what they're going to do with the current value of the expansions out there. Add to the results equal to the experience cost of the Overlord card.
Maybe it is just the fault of the people doing the run throughs but for some reason Mage Knight never came off as a grand adventure. But the next turn had him spawning the master spider again, a zombie, and then a Merriod behind us. And I've never heard someone actually use it in conversation. So far I've held off on adding any of them to my collection because I just can't justify them. It currently comes with two free campaigns and I can see them expanding this in the future. It's really a puzzle dressed up as a fantasy adventure game.
Granted, the game is modeled with an Overlord vs Players dynamic, but this was an unbalancing amount of difficulty. In the app there is only toturial and 2 campains and 1 adventure? The most exciting part about this app is the potential it has for the future of gaming in the world of Descent. The closest thing to a modern Descent is going to be Geocore. It's in some sort of weird limbo state perhaps. I really like the app but it needs more work. For example there is no basic or epic play variant.
Recurring Threads Daily Discussion and Game Recs What Did You Play This Week? Descent is an unbalanced game in favour of the Overlord. It is a bit arcane, but if anyone is interested I could upload it and try to explain how it works. Or have i been missing games that are heavily inspired on descent? Because I see that there is really a lot of stuff released for it. The more expansions a person owns, the deeper the experience but only the base game is necessary to use the app. When you play with Road to Legend, the app assumes the role of the overlord player, controlling monsters and inviting you to explore the dungeon in entirely new and unexpected ways.

When you play with Road to Legend, the app assumes the role of the overlord player, controlling monsters and inviting you to explore the dungeon in entirely new and unexpected ways. It's wise to keep moving, even if players think they need a rest. Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition is an epic board game of dungeon-delving adventure for 2-5 players. How is this game solo with the Road to legend app? It certainly saves a lot of book work. After choosing which campaign to play, gamers must decide whether to play the game in normal or hard mode.
But I remembered that there is that Descent app which basically allows game to be played like co-op vs tablet, and from what I read, it's quite good. For map setup it will tell you to set aside a bunch of tiles by number , but it will only have you put a couple down at first - it will have you place more tiles as you open doors. All quests have a definite stopping point — either the heroes succeed in their mission or the morale of the characters is forced below 0 making the characters flee the quest the morale of the heroes starts normally equal to the number of heroes and is decreased by 1 for each hero knocked out. Otherwise they may lay around doing unnecessary things let's go talk to that bartender again and even have pleasant evening cracking jokes, but with no progress in story. In between adventures in the world of Terrinoth, players can upgrade their skills and equipment. I just found out that my coworker's copy of Descent, that's sitting in our games library, is actually Descent 2.
I thought Mage Knight but that also seems more puzzle and hand management than actual crawler. The epic dungeon crawl board game Descent, Journeys in the Dark by Fantasy Flight Games is the reigning monarch in the present fantasy adventure board game market. Another entirely different co-op I can recommend is Castle Panic. At the core of the app is the board game Descent, but a few liberties were taken to make the app integrate well with the game. I created it for myself and my gamer group, so I have only tested it on phones with larger displays.
As a bonus, the app comes with a 4-mission mini-campaign called Rise of All Goblins, which only requires the core set to play! Questions or problems with flair? I also heard great things about Battlestar Galactica but it seems that this one shines with more than two people and someone playing a traitor. It feels more like a game of actually crawling dungeons and the campaign adds quite some interesting elements. To make a long story short, it was a horrible experience and it solidified my complete and utter dislike for that type of genre. Building levels in all directions that, although constantly messing with your orientation, you learn to master. Barnes - Yeah, I need to get my Warhammer Quest minis put together so I can begin experiencing that. Why on earth has this concept never been re-used in future games? Most times I thought I was moving fast enough just to be overwhelmed by peril event after peril event.
Also, setup is determined by the app and the board is only partly revealed at the start. The reveal of new tiles, placement of Search tokens, and placement of markers comes with descriptions or story text from the app. The common attack dice combinations up to 3 are across the top, with defense dice up to 2 down the left side. Some people think that is refreshing, but in my experience can wear thin after multiple plays. This supplements the usual way you play Descent and helps all the players in keeping track of the game progress. I think it was a combination of the game getting exponentially tougher and our Overlord actively trying to screw us. So what does this mean? Tomble can go through closed doors and portals with his heroic ability.
