Across the globe, ancient evil is stirring. Now, you and your trusted circle of colleagues must travel around the world, working against all odds to hold back the approaching horror. Foul monsters, obscure mysteries, and brutal challenges will take you to your limit and beyond. All the while, you and your fellow investigators must unravel the otherworldy mysteries scattered around the globe in order to push back the gathering mayhem that threatens to overwhelm humanity. The end draws near! Do you have the courage to prevent global destruction?
We’ll be hosting an Eldritch Horror Preview Event on Saturday, November 16th 1-5pm, which is a great opportunity to have a hands-on look at the upcoming Eldritch Horror board game before its global release. Fantasy Flight has sent us a preview copy, and we’re setting the day aside to show it off. You’ll be able to play the game, check out its rules and components, and place a pre-order if you’re so inclined. From Fantasy Flight’s product page:
Eldritch Horror is a cooperative adventure game in which one to eight players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to gather clues, solve mysteries, battle terrifying monsters, and protect the world from otherworldly threats. With twelve unique investigators, two hundred-fifty tokens, and over three hundred cards, Eldritch Horrorpresents an epic, world-spanning adventure with each and every game. Inspired by the bestselling board game Arkham Horror, and set in the same eerie mythos,Eldritch Horror presents a unique, globe-spanning adventure for those intrepid souls brave enough to embark on the journey.
While fans of Arkham Horror may recognize some shared mechanics between these two sister games, these familiar mechanics take on new twists. Eldritch Horror is not an expansion, nor does it replace Arkham Horror. It is a brand new game, which stands alongside Arkham Horror and the rest of FFG’s library of Lovecraftian games, filling its own distinct niche.
