“I recall that the people went about with pale and worried faces, and whispered warnings and prophecies which no one dared consciously repeat or acknowledge to himself that he had heard. A sense of monstrous guilt was upon the land, and out of the abysses between the stars swept chill currents that made men shiver in dark and lonely places.” – H.P. Lovecraft, “Nyarlathotep”

It is the roaring 20’s, and while there’s electricity in the air, unnatural storms are brewing as well. Strange things are happening in the small Massachusetts town of Arkham; people have gone missing, sightings of indescribable creatures grow more and more frequent. And the very air thickens with a sense of foreboding that roils like an acrid mist through the streets.

The Ancient Ones are stirring…

“Tell me, Ms. Goldberg,” the interviewer asked, “how do you come up with the fascinating and terrifying stories in your books?”

“I don’t make these things up,” Gloria urged. “They just come to me…in dreams. I don’t write about them for the money or fame. Those just came with it.” She stared into her coffee, frowning, as if her next words were being restrained by some mysterious force. “I write about these things to get them out of my mind.”

Designed for 1-8 players, Arkham Horror is a cooperative adventure game of survival, horror, and investigation. Players take on the role of an investigator, each with his own unique backstory, abilities, and equipment. On their own, it’s likely they won’t make it through the night. But together, these unlikely heroes might stand in the very presence of an Ancient One and live to tell the tale…if they can retain their sanity!
