Second Look - Boardgame reviews in depth. Check out that cat.It’s been almost a year since I took a look at Shadows over Malice by Devious Weasel Games, a great cooperative fantasy game of epic proportions. When I was offered the chance to take a look at its expansion, Seekers of a Hidden Light, I jumped at the opportunity. Once again finding the time to get the game to the table was a challenge, but my oldest son and I finally did over the course of a couple of nights. Seekers adds one major thing. Quests. Glorious quests. It also adds Lux potions and rules making combat more interesting.

SoHL+Box+TopOne of the best parts of the new expansion? The rules are pretty clear, and concise. It took no time at all to incorporate them into the base game. While we had a great time playing, the added layer of depth the expansion adds was pushing it a bit for my 10-year-old, and I think reference sheets are going to be in order for future plays.

Seekers of a Hidden Light only adds to an already great game, making it feel more complete. There’s really no reason not to pick this up if you already of Shadows of Malice, and no reason to leave it out of your game whenever you play. The only thing I’d really like to see if a new, comprehensive rulebook with Seeker’s rules included, and the clarity of the expansion’s rules carried out throughout.

You can snag Seekers from the publisher’s site for $27.95.
