Initial Thoughts on Gloomhaven Jaws of the Lion and Scenario Two:
Now this feels more like playing Gloomhaven. While Jaws of the Lion scenario number one was fun, it felt rather odd due to the number of rules that were cut out. As experienced Gloomhaven players, it just felt odd.
It seems like, to me at least, one of the key things that makes Gloomhaven what it is are the monster AI and the monster action decks. That’s the biggest new addition to this scenario when compared to scenario one.
What’s interesting is that instead of getting a full monster action deck they give you a special basic deck that only has four cards. I thought this was a really smart way to slowly up the difficulty and complexity bit by bit.
This scenario also introduces a few more things like traps, push and pull abilities, cards that are lost when played and treasure that can be looted.
