Ever thought about wanting to play Gloomhaven without having to find the space to lay out the dungeon, cards, accessories and more? Well, Joe Klipfel has designed Gloomholdin'. This fan game takes the essence of Gloomhaven and distils it down into eighteen cards and can be played in one hand.

Gloomholdin' does require a pretty deep understanding of the terminology and gameplay of the original Gloomhaven but Joe Klipfel has put together a couple of videos and Rulebook which introduces you to the game.

How To Play Gloomholdin'

Gloomholdin' Game Set-Up

Whilst you can play the game in one hand, which is a dexterity game if anything, you can also play the game on the tabletop. So, don't worry if (like me) you're very bad when it comes to holding a lot of things at once!

A lot of the elements of Gloomhaven have been abstracted but there is a really neat game sitting at the heart of this. Gloomholdin' has also been designed to play in a campaign format, following the Scenario Book and its own original story. There may be spoilers in there for normal Gloomhaven so beware if you're not deep into the original board game campaign.

Gloomholdin' Scenario Book

This is certainly an ingenious little endeavour. It is well worth watching the videos to see how the game plays. It is also entirely free to print and play and Cephalofair Games were onboard with them creating this fan project. So, worth a pop at the very least!
