There are times where it feels like board game designers are competing for who can build the most absurdly oversized box with the most game pieces. They can all stop trying now, because Gloomhaven wins.

This box weighs more than 20 pounds, and there's a whole lot of content to justify all that weight. What you have here is essentially a dungeon crawling game, but with a bunch of twists to keep players on their toes that will delight anyone used to the standard formula.

There's seriously more than 100 hours of play you can get out of Gloomhaven while the campaign unfolds, with each successive game building upon the last rather than everything resetting each time you play. Just make sure you've got the room to play and the time to paint the minis!
