It's always darkest before the dawn....

These are the final days of the war. I never thought to see horrors so foul as have been visited on us in these past weeks, but the range of responses has been nothing short of heroic. People from all across the kingdom have contributed in every way imaginable, from food and equipment to prayers and information. Champions have risen up from all walks of life to battle the undead. Soon, this will be over, one way or another....

Complete your Darkest Night experience with The Small Hours, bringing all the new cards and gameplay features from the second edition of Darkest Night to your first edition game set. This expansion more than doubles your number of Quest, Mystery, and Darkness cards, bolsters your heroes with new "sparks" that can enhance any die roll, provides three new powers to each hero (yes, all 29!), introduces a new customizable map deck, and more.

To make full use of this expansion, you must own Darkest Night (first edition) and all of the previous expansions:

• With an Inner Light
• On Shifting Winds
• From the Abyss
• In Tales of Old
• From Distant Lands (or the four individual promos: Nymph, Enchanter, Mercenary, and Tinker)

With these expansions combined, you have all the same gameplay features as the second edition of Darkest Night (Kickstarter version).

What's In The Box?:

• One 16-page, full-color Rulebook
• Two 11" x 17" cardstock maps
• One player aid
• 88 Power cards
• 12 Event cards
• 22 Artifact cards

    Amazing that they did this.

    I'm blown away they made this. Darkest night is my favorite game and I invested so much in the 1st edition I was saddened that I couldn't afford the 2nd edition. But for a mere $35 this allows me to upgrade from 1st to 2nd edition. Right on guys, thanks for doing the right thing.
