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.
From the post:
Arkham is home to a host of strange, otherworldly occurrences, from bizarre astronomical events to a sense of déjà vu that permeates the whole city. Few know the terrible truth, the source of these anomalies, the nightmares beyond imagination. But it is an investigator's job to get to the putrid heart of these mysteries, to follow horrifying threads and discover this unknowable truth. Can they survive with their sanity intact?
There are four distinct scenarios inviting you to journey into Arkham, and these scenarios provide a new way to play the game with every playthrough. Not only do they provide different goals, monsters, board layouts, and narrative stories, these narratives even have branching paths based on your performance and choices. Regardless of the scenario, your investigators will be pushed to the edge of sanity in their search for answers better left unearthed.
Join us today as we preview two of the four scenarios found in Arkham Horror Third Edition, the newest edition of the classic board game of cooperation and cosmic horror, and pre-order the game today at your local retailer or online through our webstore!
