An artifact of untold power lies in your hands. To claim it, you must escape the caverns alive. No less than nine horrific beasts stand in your way – that, and the greed of the other players. In this game of kill-stealing, you decide whether to swing for a whopping 50 points of damage – or hold back, awaiting a more opportune time to strike.
Only the final blow matters if you are to score the kill. Hold back or sabotage others plans too much – and the entire party will die, without a winner.
The adventurers jockey for position during combat with their lives and their own selfish desire for power in the balance.
So things get very funny & very deadly - very quickly. Enhanced Encounters, Epic Finish rules, scaling play times, enhanced components, updated cards, rules and keywords to streamline play and a ground up reenvisioning of the illustrations and graphics are all among the updates you can look forward to in this Anniversary Edition of the game.
The first expansion to cutthroat caverns, deeper & darker adds fifteen new monsters to hinder your quest to escape alive with the Sacred item of unimaginable Marvel...Which means fifteen new monsters to use against your "friends" That are trying to escape with your artifact. It also adds some impact to character choice-eachh now has a unique ability, usable once per game, that might give you that special push that you need to make sure that you're the one left standing with the most prestige when the dust settles.
