Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game that takes place before the events of Gloomhaven. The game includes four new characters — Valrath Red Guard (tank, crowd control), Inox Hatchet (ranged damage), Human Voidwarden (support, mind-control), and Quatryl Demolitionist (melee damage, obstacle manipulation) — that can also be used in the original Gloomhaven game.
Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a more streamlined way to get into the game. The lengthy set-up of cardboard map tiles has been removed, and instead players will play on the scenario book itself, which features new artwork unique to each scenario.
Includes a five-scenario tutorial that will ease players into the experience.
