Yep, I got it in a bargain, expansion included!

I also ordered artscow's coop mode.

Is there anything I need to know before playing (besides the rules )?

I maintain that Doom is in many ways superior to this day to it's offspring.

I imagine you either chase chickens to lock up or it's co-op mode. Or cooperative.

I think Doom might be superior than Descent 1.0 with no expansions depending on your flavor choice. But once the expansions got added Descent 1.0 is much better overall.
Descent 2.0 should have been left in a dumpster like it's prom night.
Imperial Assault however redeemed the family chain with flying colors. Plus it's star wars...so....

Check out the optional rules in the Expansion before your first play. It's like "choose a fix to the base game rules" section.

Also download the campaigns uploaded here. The Boot Camp one is really cool!

If you can figure out how to play coop/solo scenarios from this thread, let us know.

As far as I have read I didn't have any troubles in understanding the mode.

Do you have any specific point regarding rules?

The expansion seems really good to me. If you can, why not?

Only that the thread talks of scenarios, but they never get listed. There are maps, and rules, but no plot, or mission, or goal to make the map have a sense. A map with a simple "find the blue key and exit", maybe one with a timer ... Did I miss that?

Hiya,

Doom is a cracking game! If you can get an expansion then do so. Use a timer, 2 minutes for all of the marines and 2 minutes for the overloard. It really adds to the excitement and panic!

Have fun,

All the best,

Chris
