Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.138: Eldritch Horror
In yesterday's post I indicated that, whilst Arkham Horror remains a favourite Lovecraftian game, it rarely hits my table. The reason for this is due in part to its successor, Eldritch Horror. Retaining many of the key features and mechanics of Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror also produces a more streamlined and story-driven experience, managing to fit the equivalent of an entire Call of Cthulhu rpg campaign in the space of about 2 hours. Finally, with its first big box expansion, Eldritch Horror has produced what for me is the Holy Grail of gaming: being able to boardgame At The Mountains of Madness. Nice.
