Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a board game created by Fantasy Flight Games.

In the darkest depths of Terrinoth, an ambitious overlord gathers his minions to lay siege on the world above. Only a small band of heroes, gifted with courage and power, will be able to save the land from the cold grip of domination. Now is the time to venture into the dark and unravel the overlord's plot before it's too late...

Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is an epic board game of dungeon-delving adventure for 2-5 players. Packed with valorous heroes, dangerous monsters, magical relics, and exciting quests, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) delivers heroic adventure in a world of high fantasy.

Building on the successful legacy of the first edition, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) re-imagines the classic experience with an epic campaign system and accessible rules for dynamic tactical combat. Through a series of engaging, story-driven adventures, our heroes must gather power and experience in preparation for a climactic final showdown with a cunning overlord.
