Co-Op Adventures

Recommended Posts

My group's really been enjoying the co-op adventures, but they seem to be treated as a poor cousin to the main line (blister packs, no printed quest guides, etc). We tend to play them to the exclusion of the campaign, these days. Our only complaint is there's not enough of them.

 

What's the community's general reaction to the co-ops? Do many others share our opinions, or is co-op mostly a side-light? Do you think there's enough support for FFG to do a big-box co-op expansion?

I don't know how much support there is for the co-op expansions (the reception of them seems to be positive, but I have no idea how that translates to sales.) In any case, there are at least 2 very fun custom co-op adventures:

I was about to start a thread with a small question, but It fits here.

 

If descent is a game for 2-5 players, and in the co-ops, of course, there is no OL, I wonder if can be played by 5 people, or the 4 hero limit persists. Just curious.

I've just ordered the core game off Amazon and it should be getting here later today. I only just found out about these co-op adventures and now I'm wondering if it would be possible to make the whole game co-op. I assume it wouldn't just naturally integrate but could you do it somehow? For the most part, it'd just be me and one friend playing and I'd prefer all our adventures to be 2 hero co-ops rather than OL vs 1 hero.

It would have to be 1 OL vs at least 2 heroes (even if controlled by the same person,) but that's just a technicality.

 

If you're interested in making the whole game cooperative but still want to play the campaign, you should check out Redjak's automated OL variant.

Thanks, that's absolutely perfect. After my last post I found out that the co-op expansions are sold out all over the UK and postage from mainland EU is too high, so this is extra good news.

My general "reaction" to the co-op adventures is that they are a nice alternative way to play Descent, but are vastly inferior to other co-op games in the genra. If you like to play solo then you would find additional interest in getting them to the table, though.
