There is a new expansion coming for those adventurers who like to access Dungeons & Dragons via board game journey! The Ghosts of Saltmarsh expansion is now available to order, containing multiple different adventures, new map tiles, a ton more monsters and much, much more to delve deeper into the new sea-ridden content.

The new expansion takes players out to sea, sparking new opportunities for some close encounters from those who lurk in the deep:

"The King of Keoland, after unsuccessful expansion to the north, has turned his eyes southward, to Saltmarsh, with the intention of turning this village into an important port to increase the stature of his kingdom — but not everyone in the village is happy about the new developments, and old enemies fight for control, unaware of a new enemy about to rear its ugly head."

As the expansion begins, players will thrust their way into the town - fuelled by fear and deep-bellowed screaming and it is time to step up to the plate and get stuck into some gruesome new adventures.

Not sure how to dive into the board game version? Heading into this adventure is as easy as a simple ship taking a high-five from the Kraken. All players have to do is choose their established character from a previous campaign - whether it be another expansion or the base game itself, and immerse themselves in the fresh new salty-sea-air storyline.

This is sure to make Gerry feel a little uncomfortable being a board game-RPG hybrid - but wait, there is more! The box contains eight different miniatures to align with the campaign and add detail to the board. However, if players were keen on adapting the game even further, they can even take out the monster tokens for their own miniatures to further encapsulate the adventure.

The game is set to release Q3 of this year, so if you can't get your gaming team together for a regular campaign of Dungeons & Dragons, or struggle to find a DM and want to still try out the newest storylines, it might be worth picking up the board game. There are two different versions set to be released, the regular release and the premium edition which will contain fully-painted miniatures.

What do you think of Dungeons & Dragons adapted as a board game?
