Searchers after horror haunt strange, far
places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea
of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined
Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the
scattered stones of forgotten cities in Asia. The haunted wood and the
desolate mountain are their shrines, and they linger around the sinister
monoliths on uninhabited islands.
–H.P. Lovecraft, The Picture in the House
An ancient evil is stirring. You are part of a team of unlikely heroes engaged in an international struggle to stop the gathering darkness. To do so, you’ll have to defeat foul monsters, travel to Other Worlds, and solve obscure mysteries surrounding this unspeakable horror. The effort may drain your sanity and cripple your body, but if you fail, the Ancient One will awaken and rain doom upon the known world.
Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game for one to eight players, based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and inspired by the classic board game Arkham Horror. In Eldritch Horror,
investigators travel the globe in an urgent quest to save the world
from a diabolical, omnipotent Ancient One. With four different Ancient
Ones, twelve investigators, numerous monsters, and hundreds of possible
encounters, every game provides an unique and epic adventure.
