An Explosive New Expansion
features monsters that don't merely sit waiting to be slain; if you leave them alone, they will rip Haven Town asunder. They'll kill people, break walls, and kick your heroes in the face. The monsters won't stop coming until the last Shadowrift is sealed; the town has been built into a mighty fortress or laid to waste!
"Shadowrift is a great game for people that want to have a little more complexity in their cooperative deckbuilder. I really enjoy how the monsters work and how each faction is very different from one another. I also appreciate that although there is no way to destroy cards in your deck, this is mitigated by the Heroism you earn during the game. I cannot describe to you how cool I think the villager cards are, as it adds a different facet to the game. 8.25/10."
The battle against the relentless hordes continues in Boomtown, an expansion for Shadowrift. Two new monster factions join the assault. The Goblins bring evil magics, crude weaponry, and an excessive amount of explosive bombs with them. In contrast to the Goblins, the gargantuan Colossus assails heroes and villagers alike with powerful claws and horrendous weapons embedded throughout its giant horrific body. To combat these new threats, two new Heroes join the fray. The skilled Fencer strikes with precision while avoiding enemy blows with ease while the Chronomancer uses their powers of illusion and alteration of time to manipulate the odds to their favor.

"I’ve played with all of the different monsters again, and I love the way that they feel so different from each other because of the way that their powers work. The strategy that worked with one of them may not work with another. But, most importantly: it’s fun. When you play, you can feel a story playing out, though you don’t know whether it’ll have a happy ending until you finish. Or a gruesome ending... Win or lose, I always have a good time playing Shadowrift."
"Shadowrift is one of the better deck building games that we’ve played... You’ll want to buy Shadowrift 2nd Edition if you like fantasy games, co-op deck builders, and/or want to try out a cooperative game that introduces a couple unique mechanisms. In our collective opinion, Shadowrift is a keeper!"
