Official Co-Op Descent with no Overlord

54 posts in this topic

 

"I'm sorry," the FLGS owner replies, shaking his head, sadly, "but I can't actually sell you this.  I can sell you the normal Descent game, but it doesn't play anything like the game you just enjoyed so much."

 

Frustrated and disheartened, the customer leaves the FLGS, promising never to return since it is clear that a business who won't actually sell their product doesn't deserve his patronage.

Alternatively, the FLGS owner politely explains that the co-op expansion will be on sale later this year, and that the customer can buy the core box now if he likes, as it will be required to play with the co-op expansion later anyway.

 

Has FFG confirmed that the solo version will be available for purchase later this year?  I have asked my FLGS to order in at least one set for the organized play, but I haven't heard a response from them.  I love Descent and would really like the oportunity to try this coop version!

I bet if you talk to your FLGS they would be happy to order and sell you one of these kits...if you know you already want one.

I have a group of gamers that meets at a Condo every week (between 15-20 of us on average).  If I can't get my FLGS to come through for me, I'm guessing that there is no other way for me to order a kit for our group?

I think it's already been quoted once or twice in this thread, but here it is again, from the official announcement on this very web site:

"Even if you don’t attend a Game Night at your local retailer, the adventure included in Season One 2014 Descent Game Night Kits, Forgotten Souls, will be available to you via In-House Manufacturing after the kits are rotated out of circulation later in 2014."

It may not include the fancy plastic hearts or transparent attack dice, but there's not much point in giving us the campaign without the rules/cards needed to play it. Hence, the co-op game will be made available to all at a later date.
