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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

From the announcement:
From the preview:
Eons ago, sentient life forms stronger and more ruthless than mankind ruled the earth. These Elder Things enslaved other species and built a civilization far more advanced than our own. But as earth’s climate changed, the Elder Things lost their power and withdrew to what is now Antarctica, waiting out the millennia for a time when they might rise again. In the Mountains of Madness expansion for Eldritch Horror, that time has come. The Elder Things are awakening, and you must prevent them from retaking control of the world.
Today’s preview focuses on the Rise of the Elder Things, one of the two Ancient Ones that you can combat in Mountains of Madness. We will also look at the expansion’s Adventures, which guide your Antarctic expedition and reward you for braving the continent’s terrible conditions and terrifying horrors.
From their website:
It seemed to be a sort of monster of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.
– H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
Otherworldly horrors tear at the thin fabric of reality, seeking to intrude on our dimension for their own inscrutable purposes. To look upon their terrifying forms is to risk insanity, for these shapeless beasts have a strange, almost mesmerizing beauty. Those unfortunate individuals who lay eyes on such cosmic abominations are often drawn inexplicably toward them, and into their own merciful demise.
