Jaws of the Lion-like Scenario Books Will be Developed for Gloomhaven and Frosthaven


Designer Isaac Childres just announced on #Frosthaven's Kickstarter page that with the high demand for scenario books in lieu of map tiles, they will be making the following decision:

  • To respect those who backed Frosthaven having been promised map tiles (and for those who prefer this over a scenario book), map tiles will still be included in the box.
  • To accommodate those who want a scenario book instead, they will be developing the books for Gloomhaven and Frosthaven that can be purchased separately.

Here's the link to the update where Isaac also runs through the pros and cons of a scenario book.

Now here's a question: For those who have been hesitant to get Gloomhaven or Frosthaven, will this push you over the edge?

Would there be a benefit to having both options?

Personally, I don't think so. Based on the reactions from the community, it seems like people who like tiles will stick with tiles but many prefer the book. Keeping the tiles in the fulfillment and making the books available for separate purchase seems like a great compromise.

Very cool!  I gotta say, one of the big appeals to me of #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion (ok, there are a lot), but I really like the look and idea of the story book maps.

As someone who backed #Frosthaven without ever having played Gloomhaven but has now jumped into #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion I am very excited about ordering a scenario book for Frosthaven and enjoying it that way.  I wonder if the scenario book has any chance of release alongside the game?  Either way, cool news!

Push me over the edge? No. Is this a great move to give the people what they want? YES.

That's pretty exciting. After using both systems I'd vastly prefer the book version over the tile pieces.
