Description

Something evil stirs in Arkham, and only you can stop it. Blurring the traditional lines between roleplaying and card game experiences, Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a Living Card Game of Lovecraftian mystery, monsters, and madness!

In the game, you and your friend (or up to three friends with two Core Sets) become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. You have your talents, sure, but you also have your flaws. Perhaps you've dabbled a little too much in the writings of the Necronomicon, and its words continue to haunt you. Perhaps you feel compelled to cover up any signs of otherworldly evils, hampering your own investigations in order to protect the quiet confidence of the greater population. Perhaps you'll be scarred by your encounters with a ghoulish cult.

No matter what compels you, no matter what haunts you, you'll find both your strengths and weaknesses reflected in your custom deck of cards, and these cards will be your resources as you work with your friends to unravel the world's most terrifying mysteries.

Each of your adventures in Arkham Horror LCG carries you deeper into mystery. You'll find cultists and foul rituals. You'll find haunted houses and strange creatures. And you may find signs of the Ancient Ones straining against the barriers to our world...

The basic mode of play in Arkham LCG is not the adventure, but the campaign. You might be scarred by your adventures, your sanity may be strained, and you may alter Arkham's landscape, burning buildings to the ground. All your choices and actions have consequences that reach far beyond the immediate resolution of the scenario at hand , and your actions may earn you valuable experience with which you can better prepare yourself for the adventures that still lie before you.

    Probably now my go-to for AH:TCG

    Waited for the sale price. Not disappointed with the delivery time frame. Ordered Thursday, received Tuesday (with the long weekend). Appeared to have a lot of stock of nearly everything.

    Still getting my head around the game, but having a lot of fun. I’m pretty sure when I want new stuff, Gameology will be my first port of call and it shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Will have to remember to buy multiple mythos packs and/or sleeves though. The $10 flat postage rate in that regard is a bit steep for the one-off purchase (but well worth it for what I received in this purchase).

    Fun for everyone

    I introduced this game to my family over the weekend and they all had a blast. It can look a little complicated, but once everyone gets a handle on the basic mechanic of compare skill number to target number, add bonuses from cards, subtract/add number from chaos token, it's actually pretty easy to get to grips with. And the feeling of pulling off an amazing card combo is very hard to beat.

    That and the fact that we made Lego minifigures of all the investigators made this a really enjoyable game.

    Good game successfully delivered

    After ordering Gameology gave me updates on order progress including link to Australia Post tracking - thumbs up guys!

    About the game itself - The first time I played it (solo) I was on the fence but subsequent plays (and specially 2-player) has made me really appreciate it. I love the athmosphere it creates and the constant sense of urgency. The different scenarios are also well made I feel. Each scenario gives different characters a chance to shine. There is obvious crossover between this, Lord of the Rings LCG & Marvel Chamions which I have also played (they are all crearted by the same designer) but they are different enough that they are all worth a go.

    I've been playing Arkham Horror with my 6 year old son (like the bad dad I am), I simply don't read out all the details to him. He does love it, he says it's a bit spooky but very exciting.

    What I particularly like about Arkham Horror is that you don't have to fight every enemy and it can be ok to simply give up and surrender. That is a nice touch!
