From the website:

WizKids is excited to announce Dungeons & Dragons: Ghosts of Saltmarsh a new Adventure System Board Game Expansion for use with the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System series of board games!

Dungeons & Dragons: Ghosts of Saltmarsh Adventure System Board Game Expansion is an addition that can be played with any of the previous Adventure System games! It features new adventures, map tiles, monsters, traps and spells. Just select your favorite heroes, and get ready for an all-new campaign!

Return to the classic gameplay of the D&D Adventure System, with some exciting new changes! You’ll still take on the role of a D&D hero, with thematic skills and abilities, and either on your own or as a group of up to 5 adventurers. You’ll face multiple scenarios in an overarching campaign, evolving and leveling up your character on the way. You’ll explore treacherous caves, avoid deadly traps, and defeat terrifying monsters. You can also play your favorite scenarios on their own as a stand-alone experience!

In addition to the exploring adventures familiar to fans of Adventure System games, where tiles come out one by one, there are adventures that take place in the town of Saltmarsh itself, a set map made up of 6 double-sized tiles, where you’ll fight to keep villagers safe from monsters after their own ends. It’s an exciting and different game mode, where without exploration, the new Adventure deck provides the challenges and surprises that stand between the Heroes and success.

Ghosts of Saltmarsh includes 8 new highly-detailed Sahuagin miniatures including two powerful new villains to encounter in your adventures! You’ll add these to the miniatures from your Adventure System Games to populate the board, using included tokens to represent any monsters you may not already have.

This thrilling new release comes in two editions: Premium Edition, featuring high-quality, beautifully pre-painted miniatures, and Standard Edition, featuring high-quality unpainted miniatures.
