Arkham Horror


This is quite a release announcement from Fantasy Flight. First off, as you can tell from the Featured Image, the much-anticipated Marvel Champions card game is now available. But if you're wanting something else, there's a bit more going on. There's the new Final Hour stand-alone Arkham Horror game. Or, for you Mansions of Madness players, you can pick up Path of the Serpent. Want some Star Wars: Legion? There's that too with the BARC Speeder and Droideka kits. I told you it was quite an announcement.

Discuss

Path of the Serpent, new expansion for Mansions of Madness, is soon to hit game shelves. As always, intrepid Investigators will be trying to stop the nefarious forces of evil from bringing harm to humanity. But who are these stalwart defenders? In this preview, we get a look at exactly that, checking out the four new Investigators coming in this box set.

We've all been there before. You've got your games ready. Drinks. Snacks. Everything's set out. Then, the messages start coming in. "Sorry, can't make it." "Maybe next time." "Work called in last minute." "I got trapped in an alternate dimension." So, you're gonna be all alone for Game Night. But that doesn't mean you can't get your game on. Arkham Horror: Final Hour comes with a Solo Mode. Get a look at it in this preview.

The Investigators are doing everything they can to stop the Great Old One from coming into our world and destroying everything. Are they too late? The ritual is already finished. The Great Old One stirs. And that's just what we get a look at in this preview of Arkham Horror: Last Hour, coming from Fantasy Flight. While the Investigators are doing what they can, that doesn't mean the evils are stitting still. In this article, we get a look at the Ancient Ones phase in the game.

The Dead of Night... That's when I tend to wake up and get a lot of my work done. But it's also filled with all sorts of strange sounds, unknown phenomena, and when evil is certainly afoot. At least, it definitely is in the new expansion for Arkham Horror that's now available from Fantasy Flight.

Discuss

The cultists were successful. The great Elder God will be coming. But maybe all hope is not lost. The Investigators still have a chance to save the world, but they'll have to work together and fast. That's the story in Arkham Horror: Final Hour, the new board game coming from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at the speedy Action Phase.

Dead of Night. It's when I do much of my work. *often up at 2am* But I will freely admit that strange things often happen. Weird sounds around my apartment or at the office. Walking to the car and just feel unease. For me, it's just some animals in the woods or my own paranoia, but for the Investigators in Arkham Horror, it's much more nefarious. In this preview of the new expansion coming for the game, Fantasy Flight looks at the new scenario you'll be trying to solve.

Discuss

Dead of Night. Some people might use that term to describe when I wake up in the morning and start work (been up since 2:30am. No alarm clock required. And no caffeine consumed). But it's also the name of the next expansion coming up for Arkham Horror. As one would expect, there's some new Investigators incoming. In this preview, we get a look at them.

Discuss

The world's about to end. The evil ritual has been finished. The abomination from another dimension is here. But it might not be too late after all. That's what's happening in Arkham Horror: Final Hour, a new cooperative board game coming from Fantasy Flight.

Discuss

While the game may be called Mansions of Madness, those mansions aren't always in New England somewhere. In Path of the Serpent, the new expansion announced by Fantasy Flight, the investigators will be making their way to the Amazonian rainforest, braving biting insects, ancient curses and traps, and huge snakes (as one would expect from the expansion's name). There's new tiles, new investigators, new monsters, and just a lot of new everything for you to check out.

Discuss

I wake up at a ridiculously early hour. I know people who generally go to bed later than I wake up. So, I am often up during the "dead of the night." And yes, even just sitting in my apartment, things can get weird. Though, I've yet to have other-dimensional horrors try and show up. You're not so lucky in Dead of Night, a new expansion coming for Arkham Horror from Fantasy Flight Games.

Discuss

Fantasy Flight is squeaking out some new releases just before the holidays. If you're looking for a last-minute gift, you can head down to your LGS and pick up two new kits for Star Wars: Legion, including Chewbacca and some of his Wookie friends, get the Mother of Dragons expansion for the A Game of Thrones Board Game, or a new playmat for Arkham Horror.

You might think that the world can be strange and cruel, but it's got nothing on the things that lurk just outside of the realm of reality. And when those things try and encroach on our regular existence, stuff begins to go weird. It's up to the different investigators to figure out what's going on and put a stop to it. The Year of New Editions adds another notch to its list with the release of Arkham Horror 3rd Edition from Fantasy Flight Games.

Discuss

The town of Arkham is just filled with all manner of strange creatures, cults, relics, books, and buildings. It's into this world that you must delve in Arkham Horror, which is getting a 3rd edition as part of the Year of New Editions. In this preview, Fantasy Flight gives us a look at a couple of the scenarios that you'll have to make your way through in the game.

We're halfway through October. The temperatures are dropping along with the leaves from the trees. It's the season of scares, and Fantasy Flight is celebrating with an event entirely dedicated to their spooky games like Eldritch Horror, Mansions of Madness, End of the World, and more during Arkham Nights, coming next weekend.

Discuss

Those strange happenings and otherworldly creatures aren't just going to invesitgate themselves. And those weird cults certainly aren't going to stop themselves. It's up to the brave Investigators to do that. In this preview, we get a look at the Investigators coming for the 3rd edition of Arkham Horror.

Discuss

There's a lot of strange things going on in the town of Arkham. A bit of an understatement, I know, but you still need to go out and investigate these happenings to see if you can solve the mystery. With any luck, you'll figure it out. With even more luck, you'll save the world. With the most absurd of luck, you'll stay even partially sane in the process. In this preview of the new edition of Arkham Horror, we check out the Mythos in the game.

Discuss

The Year of New Editions continues along into its last quarter. Still plenty of time to check out how games you love have been updated. In this post, we get a look at the monsters and combat coming in the 3rd edition of Arkham Horror. What sort of digusting otherworldly creatures will you be fighting? Check it out.

Discuss

Finally... Finally, the temperature is starting to go down. Monday is supposed to be 10 degrees cooler than today. And by then, we'll have more night than day. The season of scaring will be here. And Fantasy Flight is ready to celebrate with their Arkham Nights event. It's all things horror and Lovecraft.

Discuss

The creatures on the other side of reality are coming. Via arcane artifacts and strange rituals, the fabric of creation is being torn and they're making their way to come ensure insanity and destruction upon us all. That is, unless some intrepid heroes stop them. That's the story in Arkham Horror, the 3rd edition of which is coming. In this preview, we get a look at how Actions for the Investigators will work.

Discuss
I really missed out, naming this another Year of New Editions months ago, but it's certainly seeming like it's the case. In this instance, 3rd time's the charm as Fantasy Flight has announced a 3rd edition of the classic Arkham Horror game. Hard to believe the first version came out in 1987.

And we've come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I'm sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I've picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I'm cool like that. ;)
Anyway, I know what you're all here for isn't my choice of fizzy beverage, but for reviews. So let's get to it.

Today we have: Realm-Master, Unlock, WizKids Unpainted Miniatures, Arkham Horror The Card Game, Bushi No Yume, Ronin, Element, Guns & Steel: Renaissance, Bloc by Bloc, The Oracle of Delphi, Dragoon: The Rogue and Barbarian Expansion, RPG Coasters, Kingsport Festival: The Card Game, Running With the Bulls, Magic Maze, Faith: A Garden in Hell, and Moons.

The powers of the Great Old Ones are... well... great. Those that look to undo their nefarious schemes must be strong as steel mentally, physically, and emotionally. Any less and you're left a gibbering waste or a red smear on the pavement. It takes a special kind of person to do it, and even those that are the best sometimes still end up wrecked. Best to get to know of them while you can, in case anything happens to them. And that's just what you can do with The Investigators of Arkham Horror, which is available now.

The truth is out there. In some way, all of us want to know it. What's actually happening in the world? What are the honest facts, instead of just the spin we see in the media? At least, we think we want to know. There are some things out there it's probably best that we don't know about, at least when it comes to otherworldly horrors. The investigators that research into such things are a vital part of keeping the world safe from those horrors, but the things they know are a danger to their own sanity. Sounds like fun! In this preview from Fantasy Flight Games, we get a look inside Investigators of Arkham Horror.
