Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of terror and adventure where players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One – that is, 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.
For those who may not know, this game is a modernization of Arkham Horror. The complexity is a touch lower, but the conditions and spells are much more satisfying than the prior game. The card flipping and dice rolls keep things interesting and different, which really help with replayability. However, this randomness does not lower the importance of using strategy to win. When it comes to theme, this game is simply one of the best. Board Game Geek has it just outside the Top 20 of all ranked thematic games, which is pretty incredible. That theme permeates everything, and the story is really something that must be experienced to be properly enjoyed. Eldritch Horror is also a solo player's delight, and using one to multiple characters is not that much of a stretch. Most solo players have reported that using 4 investigators is the best mix. Like many thematic games, it's best to mitigate the luck factor as much as possible, make wise decisions, and plan ahead. We also carry the expansions if you're looking to tackle more Ancient One's in different locales with new investigators.
