Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion Gloomhaven is a phenomenon in the truest meaning of the word. A huge kickstarter, followed by 5 printing runs and counting. Quickly topping the chart for number 1 ranked board game on Board Game Geek and then it’s sequel Friosthaven eclipsing the originals Kickstarter performance. Gloomhaven has cemented itself in board gaming culture as one of the best games. If it has one problem, one tiny thing that stops it being an essential purchase, it is the sheer size of the game. From box size to the scope of the gameplay Gloomhaven is a beast. The intimidation factor might put some off. Enter Jaws of the Lion. Jaws of the Lion aims to be the accessible quick playing introduction to the Gloomhaven world. Set as a standalone prequel the game offers a new glimpse into the world, with new characters and monster types for veterans of the series. To cater for new players map tiles have been banished in favour of a scenario book. The book contains the map itself, and you will play directly on it. This also allows rule reminders to be printed next to the area you are playing. This idea has proven so popular that fans are asking for a similar book to be released for the original Gloomhaven too! Learning the game now takes place over a five scenario tutorial and with simplified rule sets. If you haven’t yet tested the waters of Gloomhaven this is a great place to start. It’s a smaller package but perhaps a more elegant one, and if you find yourself enjoying your time with Jaws of the Lion, you have the massive Gloomhaven available, and by the time you have finished that Frosthaven should be hitting retail… Player count: 1-4 Time: 30-120 minutes Age rating: 14+
