Descent : Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) may have a famous video game namesake, but the board game is in no way associated to it, in fact the 2005 release of Descent owes more to Doom : The Boardgame than that. It's a dungeon crawl epic, which can be played as stand-alone games or as part of a campaign. One player will take the role of Overloard, the evil being trying to stop the adventurers gaining their treasure, while the others will cooporate in an attempt to gain as much as they can and escape from their current position. In the campaign style of play, the characters can level up, making them stronger, wiser and tougher, which is essential if they are to proceed into the lower reaches of any dungeon.

Descent is a 2 to 5 player game, and the  time scale will depend on if you are playing a one off game, or a campaign, each campaign has several stopping points, so you don't have to tackle everything in one sitting.

Fantasy Flight have also released, "Heroes and Monster" packs, which contain exactly that, a new selection of Heroes and monsters. There are also Campaign Expansions where players can take on more campaigns, and stand-alone plays, with different senarios to battle and conquer. Also there are Lieutenant packs, which have a sculpted figure and all the tokens needed to play in a senario or stand-alone game.

How far can you travel into the depths? Not only how far can you go, but can you also get back to the surface?
