Great dungeon crawler with many expansions!
Pros: Great dungeon crawler, who plays rpg will like, has evolution, beautiful miniatures, various classes, equipment store to spend your gold acquired between adventures, and many expansions!

Cons: Game with setup time-consuming and I think I already said that there are many expansions! The bosses are tokens, the miniatures that represent them are sold as mini expansions, prepare to empty your pockets because I think I already told you that this game has many expansions !!!

Descend into this 5 Star Journey
After playing Star Wars: Imperial Assault I tried this game. Descent has a better structure in terms of playability & Character growth (Heroes in SWIA are limited to specific Hero Class cards where in DJitD each Hero has multiple ways to play). One thing to point however is that you need to read the rules throughly if you've already played SWIA, as Descent has some rules are different.

I bought this after one of the D&D games (Wrath) specifically for my 6 year old son and i to enjoy. I was concerned that I wouldn't be a part of his adventure party, and had to play an overlord, but HE LOVED THIS! It is easy enough to run and smooth over the rules to keep it interesting. This is also a great game to jump in with because of all the expansions. This one will be enjoyed for years and years!

Great Miniature Game
Descent is one of the best miniature games I've ever played .
My group does not like cooperative games , but like Descent one player assumes the role of overloard , then the situation changes and they love the idea of ​​defeat it.

The mechanics of the game Assault Imperial, was based on this game!

If you like miniatures and like medievel theme or RPG I recommend this game !

Great Game... better with Houserules
Tons of high quality plastic boardgame heroes and monsters.
Lots of double sided, thick, tiles.
The rules are starting to show their age... I would download the rules for Imperial Assault and use those instead of the rules included in this box.

One of the best dungeon crawlers
If your gaming group likes dungeon crawlers they will like this game. I owned all of the 1st ed expansions and base game so I had plenty of toys to play with once the conversion kit was made available. This version is much more streamlined and doesn't take 5-6 hours per play session, which is greatly appreciated.

Epic fantasy adventure game
I was only able to play a few scenarios before I sold it so I could buy Imperial Assault. The short time I had playing with it was really fun. Epic adventures with RPG elements. Excellent quality models with lots of detail and the plastic is really hard. The game mechanics are really neat and streamlined.

Super Fun Game
I have never played the first edition, but I am in love with this game. Great heroes that you can earn XP to level up with awesome skills. The artwork and flavor really add to the game. The monster and Overlord lieutenants make for a well balanced and challenging game. Plays well with 2-5 players.

Excellent Update of One of the Best Dungeon Crawls
Fantasy Flight Games delivers another great game in Descent 2nd edition. The dungeon delving theme is strong, the mechanics are interesting, and the game choices are engaging. Also the miniatures and game board are top notch! To those that have played the previous edition, FFG has streamlined the rules and cut the size of quests to where game play is much quicker and free-flowing. Though the price may seem a bit steep, this game is definitely worth it!
