First Game of Descent 2nd Edition

I finally got a chance to try out the new edition of Descent: Journeys in the Dark. I purchased this game when it came out with an eye toward sparking an interest in my wife an daughter. This evening we played our first two games. 

As a veteran of the original version including a complete Road to Legend campaign, I was wondering if the streamlining in this edition would be enough to make it suitable for both my rambunctious nine-year-old and the discriminating tastes of my wife. 

I am pleased to say that the introductory game went very well. In fact, it played so quickly that we had time to go through a second time. I lost as overlord both times, but I did better the second game. 

My daughter seemed to have a ball shooting goblins each turn. My wife gave a good review following our second game. This game looks like a winner and will likely see some table time on family game nights. 

I am looking forward to seeing how the experience system works.

Bravo FFG!
