Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game that takes place before the events of Gloomhaven.


Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game that takes place before the events of Gloomhaven. The game includes four new characters — Valrath Red Guard (tank, crowd control), Inox Hatchet (ranged damage), Human Voidwarden (support, mind-control), and Quatryl Demolitionist (melee damage, obstacle manipulation) — that can also be used in the original Gloomhaven game.

The game also includes 16 monster types (including seven new standard monsters and three new bosses) and a new campaign with 25 scenarios that invites the heroes to investigate a case of mysterious disappearances within the city. Is it the work of Vermlings, or is something far more sinister going on?

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is aimed at a more casual audience to get people into the gameplay more quickly. All of the hard-to-organize cardboard map tiles have been removed, and instead players will play on the scenario book itself, which features new artwork unique to each scenario. The last barrier to entry — i.e., learning the game — has also been lowered through a simplified rule set and a five-scenario tutorial that will ease new players into the experience.

Awesome game

Reviewed by on

If you haven't played Gloomhaven in a while this is a much easier way to wrap your head around some of the rules before you head back to the big box. I find that the monster movement description in Jaws is clearer to understand. It also has a nice campaign on its own which I'm enjoying quite a lot. Theres a couple elements of the big box not in the game, but if you don't have a lot of campaign time this will still take a long time to play and give you the same feeling of progression.
