Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of terror and adventure in which one to eight players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One – that is, an elder being intent on destroying our world. Each Ancient One comes with its own unique decks of Mystery and Research cards, which draw you deeper into the lore surrounding each loathsome creature. Discover the true name of Azathoth or battle Cthulhu on the high seas.
With terror spreading across the globe, you and your fellow investigators will venture to the far corners of the world. From the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas to the bustling streets of San Francisco, you and your group of investigators will travel to the world’s major cities, its most remote wildernesses, and everywhere in-between to prevent an impending global catastrophe… the awakening of an Ancient One whose arrival will cast the world into eternal darkness.
Every element of Eldritch Horror is designed to immerse you in its narrative theme of world-spanning horror and adventure. As the game unfolds, the narrative woven throughout each and every mechanic intensifies the pressure.
Even the components of Eldritch Horror add to the story and are designed to further immerse you in this epic, world-spanning adventure. From character sheets that resemble well-worn passports, tokens made to look like train and ocean liner tickets, and a board that displays a yellowed map of the world, Eldritch Horror weaves an engaging tale of a global odyssey to save civilization.
Eldritch Horror includes several features designed to ensure a unique experience each and every time you play. With over three-hundred cards, you can be assured of amazing variety in encounters, Mythos effects, and more. And since each Ancient One has dedicated decks of Mystery and Research cards, you’ll not only select an Ancient One, you’ll select an entire style of play.
Further contributing to the game’s replayability, twelve intrepid investigators stand ready to defend the world from a threat that only they truly understand. Take the role of expedition leader Leo Anderson, influential actress Lola Hayes, or any of the included heroes. Since each investigator offers his or her own unique skills, starting assets, and approaches to winning, you’re sure to find a favorite persona for saving the world.
Venture across the high seas or deep into the wild to battle monsters, uncover ancient secrets, and gather dark knowledge as you work to prevent the coming catastrophe. The eldritch horror is here. The fate of our world is in your hands. Your journey begins now. Are you ready?
