Not content with having created one of the biggest board games of all time (in the figurative and literal sense), Issac Childres of Cephalofair Games has also announced that there is a new expansion/big box for Gloomhaven coming out via Kickstarter next year, Frosthaven.

Whilst there are two smaller expansions to Gloomhaven already known, this next step in the story will be to the same level of complexity and grandeur of the original game. There will be sixteen new characters, over twenty-five new enemies and 100 plus items and scenarios for you to uncover.

According to Childres, Frosthaven will be heading up to the far north to a small outpost above the capital city of White Oak. A group of mercenaries are looking to try and bring the settlement back from the brink of destruction, tackling the harsh elements but also more dangerous threats that exist out there in the snow.

One of the enemies they will be facing is the Algox which you can see in the cover art. There are also Lurkers who are drifting in from the icy seas and machines that wander around the frozen wastes of their own free will. You must do what you can to try and fight back your foes or perhaps even try and reason with some of the oddities you'll be facing.

We also got a little bit more of a peek at the game which will be shown off in more detail this weekend in PAX Unplugged.

Here you can see six of the new characters you'll be playing as in the game, most likely available as the core characters you get to pick from at the beginning of a Frosthaven campaign. I am really fascinated to see what Childres has in the works for Frosthaven as it is truly one of my favourite games of all time.

Jaws Of The Lion

As well as the announcement for Frosthaven we also now know the title of the smaller expansion and easier entry point coming out next year, Jaws Of The Lion.

In this game, you'll be playing as a mercenary company based out of the Sleeping Lion Tavern and your exploits will have you wandering around the streets of Gloomhaven and perhaps down into its depths as well.

The idea for Jaws Of The Lion is that it will be a mass-market product which will be available to everyone at a cut down price point and give folks an easier path into the excellent world of Gloomhaven on the tabletop.

What do you make of the news?
