Saturday Morning Gaming: Gloomhaven (Steam Edition)


Jaybird is Birdmojo on Xbox Live and Jaybirdmojo on Playstation's network. He's been playing consoles since the Atari 2600 and it was Zork that taught him how to touch-type.

    Jaybird is being very kind here. The reason we stopped playing is because the board game is an absolute CHORE to set up and after a handful of sessions I couldn’t stand setting up/tearing down. It really wrecked my enjoyment of the game–and it is a very, very, very, very good game.

    But I 100% agree here–the computer implementation is exactly the board game. I watched a couple of “Let’s Play” videos on the youtubes before buying (I happily paid full price) and the multiplayer looks like a lot of fun as well. And I was the “table talk” enforcer when we played and Jaybird is right–the inevitable self-tabletalk when controlling all four characters yourself in no way breaks the game. In fact, the AI is smart enough that table talk is a damn requirement to have any success at all (I tilted at the “Normal” windmill for nine hours before finally giving up and switching to “Easy”).

    Overall, the game is a blast and I’d like to experiment with playing online eventually.Report

    I played through Gloomhaven with my D&D group a few years back. I actually tried to re-run it solo during last years’ lockdown, I didn’t get far because managing all the but by yourself is just too much work.

    Needless to say, I picked the electronic version up as soon as it left Early Access.Report
