If you’re a board game enthusiast, all we have to say is “the sequel to Gloomhaven is now on Kickstarter,” and you’ll click the link faster than you can say Euro game. For everyone else: there’s a sequel to a smash hit fantasy game just in the beginning of its crowdfunding campaign, and it’s already raised over $5 million from fans who can’t wait to get their hands on it! Welcome to Frosthaven.
Gloomhaven is a cooperative European-style inspired game of tactical combat. To say the 2017 tabletop game was a huge success is an understatement in more ways than one; not only did it also blow away its first funding goal, it made millions in its second printing Kickstarter campaign. Gloomhaven lived up to the hype with innovative gameplay and an immersive campaign players wanted to return to time and time again. (Our friends at Geek & Sundry played it for hours on end.)
Also, the box itself is literally huge.
Frosthaven is the highly anticipated companion game played in the same world. The stand-alone campaign takes players to a brand new region in the Gloomhaven settting, a frigid land with biting winds and roaming monsters. A desperate outpost on the northern coast needs formidable mercenaries to protect it from its lurking horrors. That’s where you and your brave friends come in.
Like its predecessor, the game box is filled with a staggering amount of components. With hundreds of markers, maps, tiles, card decks, miniatures, and more, the massive fantasy game promises hours of storytelling and adventure. In the Kickstarter campaign you’ll also find Forgotten Circles, an expansion pack, along with additional campaigns and components as add-ons.
If you’re a fan of open worlds and dungeon crawls, tactics and fantasy, this board game could be the tabletop experience of your dreams. Frosthaven is a game for 1-4 players ages 14 and up; shipment is planned to begin in March 2021.
