- Dare to incur the wrath of the Ancient Ones...
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.It is the roaring 20s, 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....
– H.P. Lovecraft, "Nyarlathotep"
Celebrate 30 years of trying to hold back the tide of Ancient Ones creeping into our reality by grabbing new, updated copy of the classic Lovecraftian adventure. Designed for one to eight players, Arkham Horror is a cooperative adventure game of survival, horror, and investigation. Players can select from 16 unique playable investigator characters, each with unique abilities, and will square off against the diabolical servants of 8 Ancient Ones, including Ithaqua, Hastur, and the terrible Cthulhu! Joining forces, the investigators must secure the city, encountering its haunted and mysterious locations before the Ancient One awakens. If the Ancient One awakens and defeats the players in the final battle, all of Arkham is doomed.
