Battle Goals are cards drawn at the start of a scenario, representing targets needed to be achieved in a scenario by a character.

Rule summary

At the beginning of every scenario, each character receives two battle goal cards in secret and chooses one to keep, discarding the other. If the scenario is successfully completed and the character meets the criteria of the chosen card, he or she will earn a number of check-marks as specified on the bottom of the card. [...]. If the scenario resulted in failure, the character receives nothing from his or her battle goal card, regardless of whether the goal was achieved. Players can keep track of their battle goal progress using notes if necessary. Players should keep their battle goals secret from one another until the scenario is over.

FAQ

  • Allied monsters do not count towards meeting your battle goal's objective.[reference 1]
  • Being exhausted at the end of the scenario does not change the success of your battle goal's objective or not, e.g. you still had a certain number of hit points before being exhausted for lack of cards.[reference 2]
  • You select your battle goal after reading the scenario's introduction (thus knowing the objective or special rules), but before choosing what equipment you will bring.[reference 3]
  • Gloomhaven CampaignUsing an item for Professional means it has an effect in a certain round. Iron Helmet is considered used every time you would draw an (X2), for example[reference 4].
