Shadowrift: Boomtown is the explosive new expansion to the heroic adventure game Shadowrift (also available through this campaign). Boomtown unleashes two new Monster Factions to provide new challenges to even the most veteran heroes and introduces two new sets of Hero cards with the Chronomancer and the Fencer joining the fray.
Backers of this campaign will be the first to receive this new expansion and will get it at a great price.
Shadowrift is a cooperative deckbuilding adventure game where players battle to save the besieged town of New Haven from horrible monsters that have started spilling out of unstable dimensional portals known as Shadowrift. You're trying to fight your way past them and seal the rifts shut, or hold them at bay long enough to build your town into an impregnable fortress.
Each player builds their own deck while at the same time working together to build up and protect a communal Town deck that benefits all players. Monsters are also always building up their power by attacking the town, trying to kill your villagers, and generally causing trouble. If the heroes can weather the enemy's relentless assault, they can then strike back using deadly attacks, powerful spells, and learning new skills.
With six different Monster factions to battle in the core game and endless combinations of Hero powers and Town cards, Shadowrift provides a new challenge every time you play.

Polish review with English subtitles:
"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." — GeekDad
"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!" — Co-Op Board Games
"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." — One Stop Co-Op Shop
