Frosthaven is a 2022 story-driven adventure board game, that takes place in a harsh, northern outpost where a group of mercenaries must help bring back a settlement from the edge of destruction while facing various threats such as Algox, Lurkers and machines wandering the frozen waste. It is a standalone game from the designer and publisher of Gloomhaven and features new characters, races, enemies, items and a 100-scenario campaign.

The game mechanics are similar to Gloomhaven, with combat being a prominent feature, but also includes various other activities outside of combat such as solving mysteries, and player control over the expansion of the village through the building of new structures.

The game has a crafting system where players have to gather resources and build items, as opposed to buying them in a store, as resources are much more valuable in this remote location. Items from Gloomhaven can also be used in Frosthaven, and vice versa.
