For those still unaware of Darkest Dungeon, Red Hook Studios is in the process of creating an incredibly slick turn-based strategy game with some play mechanics you probably haven’t seen before. On the surface, Darkest Dungeon may seem familiar with four characters delving deeper and deeper into perilous dungeons in search of plunder and glory, however this is where the similarities to every other dungeon crawler stop.

Last year we wrote up a guide for Comic-Con goers that featured some tips and hints designed to help folks have the best time possible. We’re super nice like that. Well, this year we’re expanding our list to include some more secrets that we’ve learned in our many years of attendance. It’s pretty special show and we want you to have the best time possible. Many many nerds died sweat to bring you this information. In years past I’ve traveled with folks that have gotten bloody from extreme chafing… true story. We call that the “Sizzle Crotch.”
