Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is all about managing adventurers and having them enter a deeply corrupted family estate to cleanse the land from the evil that infests it. One to four players will be able to take on the role of iconic Darkest Dungeon characters such as the Crusader, the Highwayman or the Vestal! While the monsters and foes are extremely proficient at dealing damage, adventurers are no superheroes! They can die or exit the dungeon mad… And this madness will affect the next expedition, no doubt. While exploring, you are going to crawl through the dungeon and manage the light of your torch – a dark path yields stronger enemies and better rewards… During combat, you will have to choose a stance. The stance you assume will tell you what skills are eligible to use! Monsters will inflict damage and stress to the adventurers, bringing them closer to death… or madness.
The game is played in replayable eleven-mission runs: after beating the boss of a dungeon, you return to the hamlet to recover and level up. Once you have vanquished enough bosses, you move on to the Darkest Dungeon and face your ultimate foe! Should you lose too many heroes before then or succumb to that boss, players lose the game. The runs are very replayable as you can experiment with the different heroes, skill load-outs, missions, and team compositions; however, the game does not comprise legacy-like elements. We hope to see you soon on the project!
