Everyone needs to eat, so become a mercenary adventurer in Round Table Games’ Gloomhaven Joust League

What is it? Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for traveling to this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process, they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.  

This is a game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

Each turn, a player chooses two cards to play out of their hand. The number on the top card determines their initiative for the round. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat.

How does our Gloomhaven Joust League work?  We teach you how to play (it’s not difficult but it is involved) and join in if your party has space and you need more adventurers.  You’ll choose a fledgling adventuring class and, with the other players in your party, start a campaign.  You can be in more than 1 campaign at a time but each adventurer will be unique to that campaign.  New players can join an existing party if there is space (a party cannot have more than 4 adventurers) or start a new campaign.  The choice is yours!

Online play requires the download of a free app from http://esotericsoftware.com/gloomhaven-helper.

We will be using a game board and chat/ video on Roll20 (no download required - it runs right in your browser).  A game link invitation will be sent out when you sign up.  

How do I join? First email us at roundtablegamesma@gmail.com with your day(s) and time(s) availability. Once we have enough interested players all available at the same time we'll set up the sessions.
