Initial Thoughts on Gloomhaven Jaws of the Lion and Scenario One:
My wife and I really enjoyed our initial experiences with Gloomhaven Jaws of the Lion. I was extremely impressed by just how much better this game is at onboarding new players when compared to the original Gloomhaven game.
While this scenario was short, simple and very easy to complete, it did a great job of teaching you how to play the game. Even as experienced Gloomhaven players this was still quite fun. It was also good for discovering a few of the differences between Jaws of the Lion and Gloomhaven.
