It’s that time again. Less than 6 months after the previous release, Dark Rages, we’ve got a new Nightfall expansion, Crimson Siege. As with the previous release, this is an expansion only and requires a copy of one of the base games to be played. If you have not played the base game yet then I recommend that you read our review for the base Nightfall game first as this review is only going to cover the new things from the expansion.

Super Dungeon Explore is a hack and slash board game that can be played with anywhere from 2-6 players. One player plays the Consul, the evil overlord who spawns and controls the monsters, while the other plays are the Heroes (a player can control 1 or multiple heroes depending on the game size and number of players). The entire game is played on a set of modular tiles and uses a whole lot of miniatures. Read more »
