Product Description

Load up yer' six shooter, throw on yer' hat and poncho, and gather the posse - the darkness is coming, and all hell's about to break loose in the Shadows of Brimstone! A fast-paced, cooperative, dungeon-crawl boardgame set in the Old West mixed with Unspeakable Horror, players in Shadows of Brimstone take on the role of classic Western Hero Archetypes, such as the Law Man, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl, then form an adventuring posse to venture down into the dark mines overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. No two games are ever the same as the Heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new Loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even discover portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!

When Wyatt earp, Billy the Kid and Doc Holliday meet Cthulhu!
October 19, 2017
One of the best “dungeon crawler” games, the rules are quite easy to learn even for 10 years old kids. If you like cooperative game, you will really enjoy this one. The campaign mode will give you a good idea of how you can improve the capacity of your hero. This game scales very well between 2 and 4 players, but solo game is also available. The pace is good and you never face the same enemies and encounters. You also have many add- on available (cards, enemy-packs) to enhance the game, but the core game content is really sufficient for outstanding time of mines and “other worlds” investigations. The mixture of cowboys with monster/demon and travel to other worlds through portals is a really good mixture! Multiple missions are available (12 in one core game) and with the addition of other world, the game possibilities seem limitless. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes action cooperative game! Here in City of ancient core set, you have 4 different classes of hero with their own assets and specialties. All classes enable a very interesting game and can be played without being dependent on another one. This core set includes a world that represent a city from outer space that is completely frozen and may enable you to find alien artifact like plasma gun. 3 specific missions are included for this world. The quality of the figurines are really good and you will enjoy painting them if this is one of your hobby (all mine are now painted and this really improve the game play). Another originality is the hero you play can improve with the experience you get from your adventure and becomes stronger with time, but the good point is that characteristics of the enemies evaluate also depending on the level of your hero posse! So you never become too strong and you can also get some injuries or madness that you will keep if you do not heal them between each mission. In fact the system introduces rules for sanity loss if you encounter horrors and your hero may also may suffer of mutations due to corruption damage (I will let you the surprise). A “time counter” is also introduced to keep you hero posse under stress with possible failure if you take too much time to visit and scavenge instead of focusing on your goals! The only problem you may face is that this game need a lot of space to set up an play and it is good to have a dedicated place for playing this game. All in all, this is of the greatest game I ever played.
