Descent: Journeys in the Dark 2ed. boardgame
First Session: Saturday -- November 12th, 2011 -- 10:00 AM
Approx. Length: 1 sessionDescription:
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, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) transports heroes to a vibrant fantasy realm where they must stand together against an ancient evil.Boardgamegeek link

| Nov 14, 2011 5:34 PM || - Josh M.:|| a great way to spend a saturday. thanks again for having us over.|
joe shooting me in the leg while we were trying to run from the zombies through fire... definitely my favorite moment.
| Nov 14, 2011 3:54 PM || - ChristianHuygen:|| Yes, it was super fun, you were both great company, and the first scenario especially was really great. I think the second one would be fun with a bigger, balanced party. Thx for the hospitality!|
| Nov 13, 2011 11:31 PM || - James L:|| Both of you made it a lot of fun, thanks.|
| Nov 13, 2011 11:29 PM || - James L:|| Great games of Mansions. That game amazes me how it can make things come down to the wire like that. The stories are awesome too. I told my wife that Joe the Gangster shot the old man in the leg, while his estate burned to the ground and all the other things that happened and I couldn't stop cracking up. |
| Nov 12, 2011 10:20 AM || - Josh M.:|| Yeah, I'll just stick a couple extras into my bag. I can bring the MoM expansions too.|
| Nov 12, 2011 9:41 AM || - James L:|| Bring whatever you think we'll play. I'm still down to play.|
| Nov 11, 2011 2:44 PM || - Josh M.:|| yeah, depending on how much time people have, we could probably either play 1 game of Descent, or a couple games of something else, like Mansions of Madness or Last Night on Earth or something.|
I'm fine with whatever. Just let me know what I should bring.
| Nov 11, 2011 2:19 PM || - ChristianHuygen:|| I would be happy to have someone else DM Descent if they want to. Either way.|
| Nov 11, 2011 2:11 PM || - ChristianHuygen:|| Can we start at 11 or noon? Bk location is fine with me. I can bring and run Descent. I think Mansions is more fun. Descent can take 6 hours.|
| Nov 11, 2011 10:14 AM || - Ross H:|| Count me tentatively in. I've got a friend in town staying with me, and need to make sure I can let him into the apartment, etc. Might be easier for me to do a little later in the day, but don't plan too much around me.|
| Nov 11, 2011 9:08 AM || - Josh M.:|| that would work for me. James, you have Mansions of Madness?|
I could just bring a different game or two with me, and then we can play whatever you guys feel like.
| Nov 10, 2011 8:53 PM || - James L:|| What do you think about meeting at my place? It's very easy to get to on A,C or 1,2 or 4,5 literally 2 stops into Brooklyn. I also vote for Mansions of Madness.|
| Nov 10, 2011 5:46 PM || - Ross H:|| I could do Saturday, I think - I've got a friend visiting, but I think he's got plans during the day, so count me in! Descent would be fun, but I'm also down for trying something new|
| Nov 10, 2011 4:27 PM || - James L:|| All day Saturday is a huge boardgames meetup going on at the Tribeca Whole Foods right near the World Trade Center http://www.meetup.com/nyc-boardgames/events/37492802/|
| Nov 10, 2011 12:12 PM || - Josh M.:|| yeah, a couple of the guys I talked to have to work this saturday|
| Nov 10, 2011 11:22 AM || - James L:|| Where is everyone? busy?|
| Nov 7, 2011 11:24 PM || - Josh M.:|| Basically, I've got Saturday free and am looking to hang out and play something.|
I've also got Mansions of Madness and Last Night on Earth, and I'm flexible on start time.
