About this deal
The #1 Reddit source for news, information, and discussion about modern board games and board game culture. The Card Art – The card art is FANTASTIC. We do not play the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, so I will be the first to admit these could be copied directly from other D&D source materials. That being said, I know what the Drow are and I thought the card art really brought to life the Drow and what they represent. This also applies to the illustrations of the other denizens of the Underdark. Except the Insane Outcasts; their eyes are just…wrong. John Houlihan (2016-12-15). Expanding the Underdark (Web).

Take the simple card structure. Most cards let you accumulate points to either place your own troops, remove opponent’s, or buy new cards. Another sub-set lets you place or remove spies – neat little bag snatchers that allow you to deploy outside your normal restrictions. Combine these abilities with promote and that’s basically the entirety of the game’s scope. Business Team: Nathan Stewart, Liz Schuh, Greg Bilsland, John Feil, Hilary Ross, Greg Tito, Trevor Kidd, Shauna Narciso, Kate Irwin, Emi Tanji, Shelly Mazzanoble, Chris Dupuis We REALLY enjoyed Tyrants of the Underdark. We played it again immediately after completing our first game. That rarely happens in our household!There are a variable number of rounds in the game and the game ends when one of two end-game conditions are met (see below). The rules in Tyrants of the Underdark are easy to learn. T: “Because I was saving it for you, my favorite reviewer and, more importantly, favorite Brian! Besides, I think this evening is over.” The components for Tyrants were a mixed bag. The troop pieces are neat; however the board left me unenthused. Tyrants of the Underdark scales exceptionally well within its 2-4 player count, as sections of the board are cut off depending on how many players you have. This helps keep the board tight and the battles exciting no matter how many opponents there are. The troop and spy plastic pieces – they are very functional, easy to differentiate, and work well on the board.

We LOVED Tyrants of the Underdark. To be honest, this is our type of game, especially because it plays well for two and in under an hour. That combined with the interesting decisions, made Tyrants of the Underdark a winner for us! Note: the round is still completed when the end game condition is triggered so that every player has the same number of turns.The remainder of the changes are minor. The material for the board and playmats is different (no better or worse). The inner circle boards have been removed. Players now place promoted cards to the left of their player board. Finally, the rulebook has been shortened. Some art was removed and unfortunately, the lore section explaining the locations was eliminated. You can grasp control of such non-pronounceable places such as "Ss'zuraass'nee" and "Menzoberranzan". However, as you slowly expand your web of influence across the board, you're increasingly likely to find yourself clashing with the other players over pieces of territory.
