Absolutely not. What better time to moisten the old loins?

How come MY loins are dry? What does a guy have to do to get his loins worked on around here?

Well if you have a billion dollars apparently you can go and recruit illegal loin moistening with impunity

Nice.

I still have yet to finish sleeving the cards, and painting some of the minis, in the massive tabletop game sitting on my shelf gathering dust.

At least having a digital version will save a lot of time.  The setup and tear-down time looks maddening on the real thing.  Even with all the components sorted into marked bins.  :o

Is the digital version going to be a true adaptation of the board game?

I have been running a Gloomhaven campaign since last September. Setup takes about 20 minutes. The family is due over this Sunday at 2 pm, and I will start setting up at 1:30 pm.

I'm getting better. All the cards are in alphabetical order, as are all the game boards. Everything each player needs is in one small plastic bag, placed on the table in front of them. City events, road events, and marketplace options are all readily available, as are the daily quests. From arrival time to the actual gameplay is under ten minutes. We do one scenario per gameplay session..takes between 90 minutes and three hours.

My group is good, and getting better. I am cranking up the difficulty, which gets them MORE experience, MORE town prosperity, and MORE money to buy cool sh!t for their characters. I believe we have done 16 missions. No one has completed their lifetime achievements..although two of them are close.

Each time a character completes their lifetime achievement, this will change the game dramatically, based on the new character they choose. They do have the ability to keep their old one..but where's the fun in that!

 BBmike plays this with his wife most every week.

I'm interested, but unless I got a review copy I'll probably wait a year after release

Only four characters available at release. If this isn't the group you want to run for a 400 hour long campaign, then tough.

Also..I don't believe that the campaign is available. I THINK that there are semi-random missions, only. Not sure on that one.

Either way, this is not a day one purchase. If each of the new character types is a DLC, then that will be 12-20 DLC's...and that just ain't gonna happen, not when I have already dropped $100 on the board game.
