Fantasy Flight Games has announced the Q2 2013 release of Labyrinth of Ruin, a major expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition, the semi-cooperative fantasy adventure board game that FFG issued in early 2012 (see "'Descent: Journeys in the Dark' Second Edition"), and which was one of the top board games in the hobby market according to ICv2’s survey (see "Top 10 Board Games--Summer 2012").
Labyrinth of Ruin is a major expansion to the Descent board game.  Set in a previously unexplored region of Terrinoth, Labyrinth of Ruin takes players to the evocative ruins of an ancient city and introduces an all-new epic campaign, plus new heroes, new monsters, and new classes.
The comprehensive campaign in Labyrinth of Ruin features nineteen narratively rich quests, which can be enjoyed as stand-alone adventures, but which were also designed with campaign play in mind.  The expansion also includes a new Overlord deck that provides an alternative to the core game’s fifteen basic Overlord cards.
New Game Pieces
Labyrinth of Ruin is not a stand-alone game.  It requires ownership of the base Descent board game in order to play.  The deluxe expansion includes a 48-page Rulebook and Quest Guide, 17 detailed miniatures, 2 custom dice, 119 cards, 4 hero sheets, 18 map tiles, and 91 tokens.
