The town of Arkham, Massachusetts, is in a panic. Horrific and bizarre events have begun to occur with increasing frequency all seeming to point towards some cataclysmic event in the near future that may spell disaster for everyone. Only one small band of investigators can save Arkham from the Great Old Ones and destruction!
Players can select from 16 unique playable investigator characters, each with unique abilities, and will square off against the diabolical servants of 8 Ancient Ones, including Ithaqua, Hastur, and the terrible Cthulhu!
Arkham Horror was originally published by Chaosium, Inc., almost two decades ago. This new, updated edition features stunning new artwork and graphical design as well as revised and expanded rules from the games original creator, Richard Launius! No fan of the Cthulhu mythos will want to miss this opportunity to acquire this classic Call of Cthulhu boardgame!
With a wonderful theme (Cthulhu, Roaring 20's) this game is a blast as one of the few cooperative games out there. As a band of investigators, trying to stop and Ancient Evil from awakening in the town of Arkham, you really can sense the oncoming dread as monsters appear all over the board and the evil slowly devours up what remains of a once peaceful town. Other that the shear size of the game and setup times, this game is a solid 9 out of 10 and should be tried by Adventurer, Roleplayer and Strategy Lovers alike.
