Thunderstone: Doomgate Legion

198 4 5
Thunderstone

Hiding away in secret for centuries, the order of the Doomgate Legion have guarded the Stone of Avarice from friend and foe alike. Their cult-like existence known only to a few, the Legionnaires dedicate themselves to the secrecy, protection, and worship of the stone. They are its champions. Its sentinels. Its vanguards.

It is up to you to defeat them.

The second expansion to Thunderstone adds more to the game of “deck-building with a purpose.” Doomgate Legions introduces the Cult of the Doomgate, who have guarded the Stone of Avarice for centuries. This cult, along with a sect of evil druids and other all-new monsters await your heroes as they race to secure the third Thunderstone!

Doomgate Legions features two all-new card types: Mercenaries and Treasures! Mercenaries are henchmen for hire in the village who bring all new abilities to the dungeon. Treasures are found after defeating monsters, providing powerful new benefits for your party! Mystic amulets and legendary armor will take your deck to new heights. But beware: the cultists have been at work on strange and horrifying new Diseases that will pose major hurdles for your heroes!

  • Seven new Heroes!
  • New art from Jason Engle
  • Many new village cards including Mercenaries
  • Five new Monster groups, including the Doomgate Legion.
  • Over 300 new cards total

You will need Thunderstone to play this game.

“Thunderstone Starts to Hit its Stride”

Do*ate Legion is the second expansion for Thunderstone, and essentially continues the upward pace set by Wrath of the Elements. Again, it expands the options for Hero, Monster and Village cards, but for better or worse, does not significantly change the core gameplay of Thunderstone.

As with Wrath, Do*ate adds another Thunderstone to fiddle with, and another Monster that grows progressively through the deck. It also adds Treasures, a kind of bonus card that pops up in the Dungeon from time to time. It’s nice to have something to pull people into the Dungeon, but I can’t help thinking that Traps (from Wrath) and Treasures should have been included in the same set to offset each other.

Like with Wrath, the excellent artwork from Thunderstone is carried forward, and the box comes with unrivaled packaging for sorting, storing and transporting combined sets of cards. And like Wrath, this is a good pickup if you like what the original has to offer.

“Brilliant Expansion!”

This expansion added a new depth to Thunderstone. I have all the expansions (and promo’s) and this is by far my favourite. A must have for any Thunderstone collection!

“Good expansion”

There are some great additions in this box. I would say that it is very easy to overpower your dungeon with the monsters. I’d advise sticking to the base game outlined in the book and trading out a card stack or two at a time.
