Eldritch Horror is a good challenging game with great replay value that can last you a good while, not to mention the many expansions that this game has. The game comes with 8 characters (theoretically you can play with 8), but playing solo (due to current conditions) so far has been great. Big bonus if you're into Lovecraft. The game does have a learning curve, but after 2-3 games you should be considerably fluent.
I've enjoyed playing this game for years with my cousin. Purchased it recently for myself and have to say it plays brilliantly as a solo experience too. I use an eldritch playlist to set the mood with a pair of headphones and away I go. Perfect night in. I recommend getting atleast the strange remnants expansion which gives you the focus mechanic. Plus the pyramids expansion for some added gameplay. It's a long game so be prepared.
This game is a cult classic. The core game itself is a blast, but gets even better with expansions. Probably my favorite Arkham files game from FFG.
On the surface, it seems like a really complex game (especially with all the phases) but once you get the hang of it, its a great exploration game. The game really shines if your group gets into the theme (playing the character and also reading out the thematic text rather than the action).
While it is a co-op game and some of the elements are similar to pandemic (travelling and doing things at location), I haven't experienced alpha player issues with this game - probably because there is so much to do for your own character on its own.
The different Lovecraft bosses definitely need different playing style to win, a lot of games I have played have been very close in just losing or just winning. Its always edge of your seat fun.
If you like little tokens this is the game for you as there are tonnes of it.
Very fun game with great replay value. Hours of entertainment with a very creepy horror vibe. Love the intricacies of the gameplay. Would definately recommend, especially if you're a fan of H.P. Lovecraft.
