Darkest Night: Second Edition is a fully cooperative board game for up to five players. Set in a broken kingdom under a Necromancer's shadow, each player takes on the role of one of the kingdom's last defending heroes.
Searching the kingdom provides new powers and equipment to strengthen you and your party. You can also acquire additional abilities that can help you elude the Necromancer's forces, accelerate your searches for items and artifacts, and more. As the Necromancer gains power, more and more ravenous undead infest the land, eventually invading the hallowed sanctuary of the Monastery. And if the Monastery falls, the Necromancer wins and the kingdom is swallowed in darkness!
Also available for purchase is the Darkest Night Miniatures Set, with 30 unique minis, bringing a new level of immersion to your game.

NOTE: This is a beta version of the book. The rules themselves are final, but we are wrapping up layout and final corrections.

Darkest Night: Second Edition will be receiving substantial component upgrades:
There are also 40 new cards that feature new content that are not in the first edition of the game.
Variant rules for playing with 2 or 3 heroes have also been added. There is now a customizable map deck! You can choose from 6 different setups with different combinations of blights, or mix everything together for maximum variety (making 7 options total including "everything"). The distribution of search results has also been tweaked from first edition; for example, the Mountains now contains more artifacts and forgotten shrines.
Due to the fluctuation of shipping costs, we will be charging for shipping through Pledge Manager once Darkest Night: Second Edition is ready to ship. In previous Kickstarters, we charged for shipping in the campaigns, but by the time the games were ready to ship, the shipping prices had risen dramatically from what we originally charged and ended up hurting us financially. Using this method, we can charge an accurate amount for shipping.
Here are the estimated shipping rates for Darkest Night: Second Edition. Please note that these are subject to change as the cost of shipping fluctuates. As the cost of shipping changes with the market, we will do what we can to keep this information up to date. We will also be doing everything in our power to get you the best shipping rate possible.
