Cephalofair Games is adding the first expansion to its popular fantasy adventure game Gloomhaven. Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles is planned for release at Essen 2018, with trade release to follow.

Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles is designed by Marcel Cwertetschka, who worked with designer Isaac Childres on the original game. The expansion picks up after the events of the original Gloomhaven campaign, where a new character class – the Aesther Diviner – is introduced, as she attempts to halt a new disaster. It includes a scenario book which breaks up encounters across multiple pages, and introduces seven new monster types (three new bosses) and 14 new items.  MSRP is $30.00.

Cephalofair will also be releasing a new stand-alone game set in the same universe, Founders of Gloomhaven,  in early 2018 (see “'Founders of Gloomhaven'”).
