Lovcraftian Thing a Day No.217: Mansions of Madness
Today's item I picked up scant hours ago: the 2nd edition of Mansions of Madness by Fantasy Flight Games - a kind of miniatures-based investigative dungeoncrawl set in 1920s Lovecraft country, where players seek to solve various Cthulhu Mythos-related mysteries by exploring the kind of gambrel-roofed architecture one imagines as typical of the Lovecraftian milieu. Helpfully, this edition also comes with a convesrion kit that allows me to use most of the key components that appeared in the first edition; unlike that edition, this one is playable solitaire. Nice.
