It is the mid-1880s in the Southwest United States. The small mining town of Brimstone has struck it rich when they discovered large deposits of a new precious mineral called Dark Stone up in the hills. It has magical properties, is rarer than gold, and is incredibly dangerous! In a flash, the town of Brimstone is consumed, the epicenter of a cataclysmic supernatural explosion, ripping open portals to other worlds down in the mines, and unleashing a great Darkness to spread across the land! Now hordes of demons pour form the mines to ravage the countryside, and the sky grows black with swarms of nightmarish creatures. A few brave souls step forward and form a posse of Heroes to hold back the Darkness!

Swamps of Death is a fast-paced, fully cooperative, dungeon-crawl board game set in the Old West, with a heavy dose of unspeakable horror! Players create characters, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as the Law Man, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl. Forming an adventuring posse, the Heroes venture down into the dark mines, overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. With tactical gameplay, lots of dice, and a robust card-driven exploration system, no two games are ever the same as the heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!

An exciting campaign system allows the players to visit local frontier towns between adventures, spending their hard-earned loot and building their characters from game to game! As players find fantastic gear and artifacts to equip their heroes, they also gain experience from their adventures. This experience is used to level up, guiding the hero's path through an expansive, class-specific upgrade tree of new skills and abilities, allowing each player to develop their hero to fit their own play style.

In Swamps of Death, players will encounter portals to the otherworld Jargono, a humid swampland inhabited by sentient reptiles, vicious dinosaurs and a tribe of humanoids, cut off from return to their homeworld untold years after their own portal closed. So load up yer' six shooter, throw on yer' hat and poncho, and gather the posse as the darkness is coming, and all hell's about to break loose!

This Revised Edition Core Set features all new plastic miniatures that are easy to assemble, with fantastic detail. With updated Rulebooks and cards; fully compatible with all existing expansions. This game includes a full set of interlocking, double-sided Map Tiles, featuring the Old West Mines on one side and the overgrown, murky Swamps of Jargono on the other. As the Heroes step through a gateway to another world, they find themselves in the savage and unforgiving Swamps of Death!
