Fantasy Flight Games Releases The Investigators of Arkham Horror

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Investigators of Arkham Horror

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.

Review Roundup

Well, my previous plans for the day sort of fell through. No worries, though. The day will not be ruined.
I might just see if my N64, that I brought back from my parent's place last time I visited, still works or not.
If so, hello Ocarina of Time!
But in the meantime, let's get you some reviews, shall we?

Today we have: Tides of Madness, Smiths of Winterforge, 3 Wishes, Garden Adventures, Top That, Happy Salmon, Kenjin, The Oracle of Delphi, Retreat to Darkmoor, Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Escape From Colditz, and Onitama.

Grave Consequences Expansion Now Available For Elder Sign

Arkham Horror already is great at making you go insane (inside the game, that is. It, hopefully, doesn't make you go insane outside of the game. I mean, it's a good game. I wouldn't expect playing it to actually cause you to lose sanity). With the new Grave Consequences expansion, though, insanity is almost guaranteed (once again, inside the game. Not outside). It's available now.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Strange Remnants a New Expansion for Eldritch Horror

Fantasy Flight Games brings more insanity into the Eldritch Horror world with the announcement of Strange Remnants, a new expansion they've been working on. What sort of monster are you fighting in this expansion? Why, it's the Syzygy. What is a Syzygy? It's a deadly alignment of the planets. That should be a pretty easy thing to stop, right? Well, to help you out, ancient civilizations left places of power, such as Stone Henge, Easter Island, and others. Only through harnessing such sites can you keep the deadly and insanity-inducing powers of the Elder Gods at bay.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews an Ancient One and the Adventures of Mountains of Madness

Fantasy Flight Games gives us a look inside their upcoming Mountains of Madness set with a look at an Ancient One and one of the adventures.


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.

Fantasy Flight Games announces pre-painted Arkham Horror Monsters

Fantasy Flight Games announces their premium painted Arkham Horror Monster Figures are now available.

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.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that the first wave of premium Arkham Horror Monster Figures is now available for sale through our webstore ! Joining the already complete lineup of Arkham Horror Investigators, these stunning hand-painted figures will further enhance the visual impact of your favorite Lovecraftian board game. What's more, each monster's base is designed with a slot to accommodate its monster token from Arkham Horror or Mansions of Madness!
