Eldritch Horror Core Game
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, brutal encounters, and obscure mysteries will take you to your limit and beyond. All the while, you and your fellow investigators must unravel the otherworldly 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?
Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of terror and adventure in which one to eight players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One - an elder being intent on destroying our world. Each Ancient One comes with its own unique decks of Mystery and Research cards, which draw you deeper into the lore surrounding each loathsome creature.
Discover the true name of Azathoth or battle Cthulhu on the high seas. With twelve unique investigators, two hundred-fifty tokens, and over three hundred cards, Eldritch Horror presents an epic, world-spanning adventure with each and every game.

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.
I'm still relatively new at this whole board game thing, and am loving exploring new titles and new ways of playing, but since buying Eldritch Horror it has skyrocketed to my favourite board games that I own. The permutations in game play are endlessly fascinating for someone of my level of experience and has me truly addicted. Fun to play solo, with two or a bigger group, I highly recommend it!
Postage was super quick, and this game is amazing! I cannot wait to get the expansions!
