Based on the H.P. Lovecraft mythos, Arkham Horror is set in the roaring 20's in a small Massachusetts town, Arkham. People have started disappearing and there has been reported sightings of strange creatures. The Ancient Ones are stirring...
Players explore the town of Arkham which features Streets, buildings, various outdoor locations and otherworldly locations from which the beasts dwell. Each player has an investigator, represented by a character card, several attributes, and cards representing items and spells. As game play progresses, gates to these other worlds open and are represented by tokens placed on the board. Monsters from the other worlds enter through the gates and wander the city. As the monsters enter, the "Doom Track" advances; it is the players goal to defeat the monsters before it reaches the end. If it reaches the end however, one of the Ancient Ones will enter Arkham beginning the end game where players will only have a small chance of defeating the ancient one and wining the game.
Arkham Horror is a cooperative game for 1-8 players and includes 16 unique playable investigators each with unique abilities and 8 Ancient Ones including Ithaqua, Hastur and Cthulhu. Various expansion packs are also available.
