I'm looking for a new co-op game to play with my son. We've played plenty of Mice and Mystics, so he wanted another fantasy themed co-op game, so I thought this would be a good fit for us since we've played a lot of Imperial Assault. I know they are different, yet also similar enough where the rules should come easy. My question is, what is the best way to learn how to play Descent using just Road to Legends? As of now we are only planning on playing co-op and never with an overlord. Do I need a firm grasp of the original rules, plus the Road to Legends rules? Or will focusing mostly on the Road to Legends rules be enough?
If you've played IA, you've pretty much played descent. The game manual will cover everything for that you should already know, for the most part. Road to Legend has it's rules online with a link from the app. DL the app and go for those rules first.
