Gloomhaven & Jaws Of The Lion PC Review

So you want to know about Gloomhaven eh? Well, if you got to that city it’s yer funeral, but I’ll tell yous what I know. A few years back, this fella by the name of Isaac Childres designed a board game. Gloomhaven he called it. Bloody fun that thing was. In any case, it got real popular, and suddenly the folks over at Flaming Fowl Studios have an idea. “Hey,” they says, “what if we made that Gloomhaven into a video game?”

Blam! That was it!

Now here we are! The game mixes tactical-RPG gameplay with dungeon crawling and it’s bloody marvellous. What? You don’t believe me? Well, all right then I’ll explain a little more. But remember, when all of yer free time is pulled in by this gem, that you asked for this. Don’t come bawling to me when you don’t got enough hours in yer day no more.

There’s Doom, and Gloom, and Things Go Boom! In Gloomhaven!

I ‘specially don’t want to hear about all yer awesome experiences with Gloomhaven in that comment section down below. No sir, keep yer problems to yerself. In fact, if you have to bother someone, why not yer bloomin’ friends. Share the misery around.


As true as those things may be, my last word on Gloomhaven is that it was an utterly difficult bastard. Despite that, the bloomin’ thing kept pulling me in anyway, and I loved every blasted second of it. All of which is why I’m giving Gloomhaven the Thumb Culture Golden Award, one bastard to another.
