Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death Revised Core Set
This new edition of the classic Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death features a full set of all new, re-designed miniatures for all of the Heroes and Enemies. In fewer pieces, and with better proportions and greater detail, these are some of the best Shadows of Brimstone miniatures produced to date!
This set also features a full balance and polish pass on every component of the game. This includes all of the FAQ and corrections since the original release, as well as some revised mechanics, card abilities, Hero Starting Upgrades, Enemy Elite Charts, Town Locations, set icons on the cards, new tokens, and a few brand new cards. The revised and updated Rulebook and Adventure Book are both now unique to this Core Set, and feature painting guides for all of the Heroes and Enemies in the set as well as revised and re-balanced Skill Trees and Upgrade charts for all of the Hero Classes.
For veteran Brimstone players, these revised Core Sets are more than beautiful new miniatures, they are a culmination of polish, balance, and feedback from years of adventures all in one place. For new players, there has never been a better time to saddle up and dive into exploring the rich world and unspeakable horrors of Shadows of Brimstone!
Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death is a fast-paced, fully cooperative, dungeon-crawl board game set in the Old West, with a heavy dose of unspeakable horror! Players create characters, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as the Law Man, Preacher, or Rancher. Forming an adventuring posse, the Heroes venture down into the dark mines, overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. With tactical gameplay, lots of dice, and a robust card-driven exploration system, no two games are ever the same as the heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!
An exciting campaign system allows the players to visit local frontier towns between adventures, spending their hard-earned loot and building their characters from game to game! As players find fantastic gear and artifacts to equip their heroes, they also gain experience from their adventures. This experience is used to level up, guiding the hero's path through an expansive, class-specific upgrade tree of new skills and abilities, allowing each player to develop their hero to fit their own play style.
In Swamps of Death, players will encounter portals to the otherworld Jargono, a humid swampland inhabited by sentient reptiles, vicious dinosaurs and a tribe of humanoids, cut off from return to their homeworld untold years after their own portal closed.
So load up yer' six shooter, throw on yer' hat and poncho, and gather the posse as the darkness is coming, and all hell's about to break loose...in the Shadows of Brimstone!
Can be used together with Shadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients to raise the maximum players to 6.

Trying to replace Warhammer Quest took 20 years - SoB finally filled that role. I cannot get enough. You print it - I'll buy it.

I love Shadows of Brimstone, and when the revised editions were announced, I was pretty excited. I already love the game, and bringing the rules up to date with the Forbidden Forest set's version made this a must have. And the miniatures are better (they were good before), but the level of skill required to put them together is much reduced, making this great title even more accessible.
I'm looking forward to playing with the updated rules and miniatures!

Great update, to an already amazing game! New core set has fantastic, new sculptures of it's models. Cardboard pieces and cards are all excellent quality.
I originally started playing Shadows of Brimstone with the first Kickstarter, and is one of my favorite, cooperative dungeon crawler games.
I highly recommend this getting this game!

The value I have gotten out of this purchase is insane.

This is an excellent revision to the original core sets. These base sets are the place to start and a great option to expand your early collection with new heroes, plenty of new monsters, and a good selection of missions. If you're wondering where to start, this is the place. If you're looking to expand, the other base sets are a good start (Swamps of Death, City of the Ancients, Forbidden Fortress). If you have the old sets I would recommend the upgrade kit and miniatures for cost optimization, but you likely still won't regret this purchase as an option.
