About this deal

Players get three actions, these are your typical move, attack, interact; after which the monsters go with two actions.

UNIQUE SCENARIOS: Massive Darkness 2 Hellscape takes the original Massive Darkness and rebuilds it from the ground up, giving players more replayability and smoother gameplay with every session. We reviewed it, and the new mechanics it offered, in our January 2018 issue of Tabletop Gaming Magazine, but you can have a read of it online. Ten years have passed since the Lightbringers drove back the hordes of the Darkness and sealed the Portal from whence they came.

inch (38 mm) thick tray with 6x 1 x 1 inch (26 x 26 mm) cut outs, 6x 2 7/10 x 1 3/5 inch (69 x 41 mm) cut outs. Combat, which is the core of Massive Darkness 2, is fun and intuitive, and there’s some interesting decisions on when to use mana (the game’s currency) to boost attacks, and add special bonuses like fire or ice damage.

NUMBER OF PLAYERS AND AVERAGE PLAYTIME: This cooperative strategy game is designed for 1 to 6 players and is suitable for ages 14 and older. Unlike say some of the more popular dungeon crawlers out there there might be ‘different’ classes in theory, they all largely play exactly the same with some slightly different stats; here they have wildly different play styles. The equipment system gives a fun simulation of loot from video games, and the class system is pretty impressive in how different each character feels. This is where players find themselves in Massive Darkness 2, a new edition of the hit dungeon-crawler game. p>Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape puts players in the role of Lightbringers looking to defeat the Darkness in this fully-cooperative dungeon-crawl game.After punching out all of the cardboard bits, you'll have to find your own organizer or use lots of baggies.

The wizard uses a wheel spell-casting system that can lead to some awesome combos and reminds me of the spell breaches from Aeon’s End; the paladin can set down auras that boost certain skills for himself or other heroes; the ranger has a fun push-your-luck mechanic for all his ranged shots; the rogue pulls specific turn-bonuses from a bag and must puzzle together the maximization of each turn; the berserker, perhaps the most basic, deals bonus damage as he takes more wounds; and the shaman manipulates the 4 elements to provide boosts and can summon flame and frost spirits, who act as additional heroes.To be fair, there are only 2 scenarios that feature a boss, and the boss fight does not last very long, so we’re talking about 10% or so of total gameplay, but that doesn’t stop boss fights from feeling like a missed opportunity. Our friends over at CMON are no stranger to an epic teaser trailer, and today brings no exception, as a trailer has been dropped for Massive Darkness 2.

cm – Important: Due to manufacturing, printing, and edition differences, box sizes can vary and may not be compatible with the version our products were designed for. The original Massive Darkness is a dungeon crawler game, where you’ll be working cooperatively to jump between shadows and night, levelling up as you progress and offering different scenarios and ways to play. Heavenfall Foam Tray - 2 inch (50 mm) thick tray with 6x 2 x 1 inch (50 x 26 mm) cut outs and 2x 3 1/4 x 1 7/10 inch (83 x 43 mm) cut outs.

This isn’t a deal-breaker, but it’s head-scratching for me to think about how easy Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion made its rather involved set-up with token trays and character boxes 2 years ago.

Massive Darkness 2’s designers Alex Olteanu and Marco Portugal did a great job with diversifying the 6 heroes in the game and making them asymmetric. Each player takes on the role of a different hero class featuring unique components and asymmetric gameplay. Please measure the bottom inside of your game box to confirm fit for the organizer dimensions listed above. When a character goes into a new room, a deck of ‘door’ cards appears that can do anything from spawning additional monsters, turning it into a treasure room, or adding traps.
