Saturday Morning Gaming: The Gloomhaven Stream
Okay. I figured that I continue to be tickled pink by Gloomhaven and think that it’s a game that any aficionado of board games should sit down and try.
*BUT*, I also know that the mechanics of the game can be a little opaque. Pick two cards? Take the top of one and the bottom of the other? Some of them get discarded, some of them get burned? There are modifiers for each and every attack?
So I thought that I’d do a little stream and try to show, instead of tell, how the game worked. I apologize in advance for the sheer number of filler words that I use. (“Uh” is the one I noticed even as I said it… I’m sure that there are more. I’m sorry. In my defense, the very first “uh” was me deciding to *NOT* open with “yo, yo, yo it’s ya boi Jaybird”.)
In this game, I walk you through how to pick your first three heroes and go into your first dungeon and clear out the first two rooms of your first dungeon (leaving the third room unopened, if you want to see the game played but not, you know, *SPOILED*). It’s my first one of these and, hey, it might be the last but if you want to see this game played before investing your hard-earned cash/time into it…
Well, check it out:
So what are you playing?
