Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a board game in which one player takes on the role of the treacherous overlord, and up to four other players take on the roles of courageous heroes. During each game, the heroes embark on quests and venture into dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests to battle monsters, earn riches, and attempt to stop the overlord from carrying out his vile plot. With danger lurking in every shadow, combat is a necessity. For such times, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) uses a unique dice-based system. Players build their dice pools according to their character's abilities and weapons, and each die in the pool contributes to an attack in different ways. Surges, special symbols that appear on most dice, also let you trigger special effects to make the most of your attacks. And with the horrors awaiting you beneath the surface, you'll need every advantage you can take...Featuring double-sided modular board pieces, countless hero and skill combinations, and an immersive story-driven campaign.

I enjoy this dungeon crawl. The miniatures are well constructed. I'm not a huge fan of fantasy themes. But I do like that you can choose a character and then customise that character a little. For me, though, Level 7: Omega Protocol beats this game hands down. Level 7 has some more interesting mechanics such that the number of actions taken by one team affects the number of actions by the other. Plus the theme of Level 7 is certainly more interesting to me
This game is now on its 2nd edition and what an improvement it is ! The original version came in a bigger box and had a lot more miniatures BUT the game is inferior to this revamed version. The battles are a lot more fun and the campaign is in bite sized chunks which allows a more organic flow to the game. It is much easier to say, invite a couple of friends to plunder the depths when you know that each section will only take about 45 minutes. You can grab some snacks have a beer and know that the quest you are doing will be done fairly quickly, which is a good thing. The quality of the board tiles, miniatures and dice are all premium level. If you are into dungeon games but don't want all the heaviness of a true RPG then look no further. Buy it now !!!
