About This Content

Only the host needs to own this DLC.

1-4 Players | Ages 13 & Up

Approximately 2.5 hours

This DLC includes Darkest Night and the first expansion, With An Inner Light.

Darkest Night, by designer Jeremy Lennert, is a fully-cooperative board game for up to four players, set in a kingdom broken under a Necromancer's shadow. Each player takes on the role of one of the kingdom's last heroes, each with a unique set of special abilities, just as they hatch a plan to save the realm.

Searching the kingdom provides new powers and equipment to strengthen you and your party, as well as the keys that can unlock the holy relics and defeat the Necromancer. You can acquire many powerful abilities—unique to each hero—that can help to fight the undead, elude the Necromancer's forces, accelerate your searches for items and artifacts, and more. The knight is a brave and powerful warrior; the prince can rally and inspire the people; the scholar excels at locating and restoring the treasures of the past.

But ravenous undead roam the realm, and as the Necromancer continues to build his power base, he blights the land and his army steadily grows. As the game wears on, the Necromancer becomes more and more powerful, creating blights more quickly and effectively. If an area becomes too blighted, it gets overrun—and the monastery receives the spillover. And if the monastery is ever overrun, the Necromancer wins and the kingdom is swallowed in darkness!

Before the monastery falls, it's up to you and your party to defeat the Necromancer in one of two ways: If you can gather three holy relics and bring them all back to the monastery, you can perform a powerful ritual to break the Necromancer's power and scour the land of the undead. Alternatively, you can try to defeat the Necromancer in direct combat—but be warned, he will readily sacrifice his minions to save himself.

Can you save the kingdom from darkness? Do you have the courage, the cunning, and the will to withstand the Necromancer and his forces? Strategize, plan and bring out the best of your abilities to end our Darkest Night!

With an Inner Light - Expansion #1

Darkest Night: With an Inner Light, introduces a quest system that requires the heroes to respond to crises throughout the kingdom and offers new ways to acquire items and powers. The expansion also adds four new playable heroes (the Crusader, Monk, Paragon, and Shaman) as well as new event and artifact cards.

It's a fine co-op boardgame - your game experience can be changed each time you play via your team's choice of characters and strategy - the assets are of reasonable quality - the theming is colorful - and the challenge level of the game is high.

I only wish that more of the expansions for the board game would be added - at present we have the first expansion on TTS - we need more!

Enjoyable game, but it can be quite difficult if you don't have the right strategy. Not so good for people who tend not to plan ahead (like me, sadly).

There's a lot of variety with the classes, especially now with the first expansion included in the game. Personally I really like the Monk.

The first expansion adds quests to the game, which overall made it more fun. They add depth and give you more to do.

Difficult to start with, but fun.

I think it's pretty good. It was well worth a play through, but it was hard to learn at first.

The first dlc was added for free. Can't beat that!

So happy to see this game on Tabletop Simulator. I've seen complaints about the rulebook, but as someone that owns and plays the physical game, this adaptation is very good and saves a lot on a game that normally has a massive setup/takedown time. I am VERY MUCH looking forward to seeing the expansions, as I own them all physically.

Hopefully they will add the multiple expansions soon.. Until then, I'd say don't buy. This game has quite a bit of content once you get all the packs and additional heroes, for a total of 29 characters to choose from (this version only has the 9 from base game). Give it some time...

EDIT 22:01 - First expansion has been added, very good! But there's much more to come if they add them all. Keep it up TableTop.

The aesthetic of this game, especially in TTS, is wonderful. Being pretty new to tabletop games, I've never played this game or so much as heard of it before. The artwork alone sold me on the game.

Everything is already set up when you load the DLC, as much as it can be. All the player(s) need to do is choose heroes, choose their power cards, and place a few things on the board.

I've spotted some room for improvement. The "standing character" tokens look kind of cheap, and although true to their forms from the physical version of the game, I feel the developer could have made some effort to create 3D models for each of the heroes and the Necromancer.

And then there's the 16-page manual that's provided with a pdf link. (it's easy to find on Victory Point's website) It's not good. The manual itself is the worst part of the game. For what's supposed to be a fairly simple game, this manual is one of the wordiest, most confusing things I've ever tried to comprehend.
If you can find a good youtube video that teaches the game better than the manual can, be sure to let me know. After reading sections 4.0 and 4.1 of the manual numerous times just to try to understand how to begin the game, I think a video made by a guy who knows the game inside & out would be the way to go.

If you ever do figure out how to play this gorgeous game, it looks like it will take around 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. To me, that seems a bit long.

This DLC is awful not really worth the price and almost no replay value. It's difficult and the manual has not been changed at all from the actual board game so alot of parts dont make much sense. It can be beat in about an hour or two and after a 30 minute setup and looking back after 20 seconds to see the rulebook it really takes away from the experience. The combat is pretty boring and most of the game is spent reading the rules or searching and area. Overall a 3/10 not worth the money.

EDIT: After the first time through it does get alot easier and faster but because the rulebook has not been changed at all from the boardgame (Due to laziness) it becomes confusing. I had to follow a video tutorial to get the first game done after that it did get alot better but i could not bring myself to do a third game. Their is very little change in what happens every game feels the same after the first. Once they add the expansions and addition heroes i will probably change my review but until then its a pretty bad DLC.
