Eldritch Horror Game Theme

eldritch horror reviewAn ancient evil (known as the Ancient One) is stirring in the world. Now, you and your trusted colleagues must travel around the world, to defend against the coming horror. You will face foul monsters, brutal encounters, and strange mysteries. You and your fellow investigators must unravel the mysteries around the globe in order to push back the mayhem that threatens to destroy humanity.

Eldritch Horror Gameplay

Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of terror and adventure where players are investigators travelling around the world to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One (an ancient enemy threatening to destroy the world). Players will choose an Ancient One for their game. Each Ancient One has its own unique decks of Mystery and Research cards and players will uncover the mystery behind them. Each Ancient One will provide players with unique game experience.

Eldritch Horror Game Objective

The investigators’ goal is to banish the Ancient One from this world by solving Mysteries.  Mysteries are solved by resolving tasks on the Mystery cards. Through the Mystery cards (along with the locations of otherworldly gates, menacing monsters, and helpful clues), investigators will decide where to travel.

In addition, investigators need to deal with many dangers facing the world. These appear in the form of Gates (spawning Monsters and awakening the Ancient One) and Rumor Mythos cards (which harm investigators and can end
the game prematurely).
