Watch It Played is a video series designed to take you turn by turn through a board or card game. Learn to play the game, follow along with the story, and help decide what happens next!

In this video, I teach you to play the single quest version of Descent: Journeys In The Dark (Second Edition).

Note: I'm frequently asked about the example at 18:10, and why there isn't line of sight to the spider. The LOS can't cross anything, including the target model itself (I know that's odd, but that's how it goes). So before getting to that back right corner of the spider, it would cross through the spider itself, so line of sight is considered blocked.
