A Critique of Descent Shadow of Nerekhall

Descent Journeys in the Dark, 2nd Edition is easily one of the best games on the market for anyone looking for a dungeon delving, role playing type experience out of their board games.  It's complete, concise and exacting in it's adventures and is one of the few games I can easily see almost anyone who likes the genre, devoting all their time to.


Since it's "reinvention" in 2nd edition, there have been a few expansions for Descent, but none have done what Shadow of Nerekhall does.  With a giant compendium of user created material online, making an expansion worth the $59.95 USD retail can be a challenge, but I'm happy to say, once again, Fantasy Flight and their team of Descent Designers have risen to the challenge!


Come with us as we explore the dark once more, and delve deeper into the world of Descent, while adventuring in the Shadow of Nerekhall!
