Gloomhaven Rules, Instructions, Directions: How Do You Play Gloomhaven?

Game Summary:

Gloomhaven is a tactical combat simulator that operates under a unified thematic element. In some ways, it is a deckbuilding game because you use an attack deck that can be modified over time. Combat uses the attack deck system and operates free of dice or dice rolls. Players continually develop the abilities of their armies by capturing loot tokens that allow for the purchase of in-game items. Characters progress on personal quests that further develop the thematic thread of the game. New character choices are unlocked over time through the development of your character and their move toward advancement/retirement.



Level characters in tactical combat scenarios, complete quests, and progress through the internal story arc.
