A fun Lovecraftian Horror game
Review by PureMagicka on 20/05/16
Arkham horror is a fun solo or multilayer cooperative game which pits a team of Investigators against horrific creatures and Great Old Ones from the Cthulhu Mythos created by HP Lovecraft.

Can be difficult to get to the table due to the time required to pay (at least a couple of hours for a standard game) and the horror theme. However, the game variety and storytelling that comes from the events that occur through drawing monsters and cards makes each game feel unique and exciting, making the time fly.

Can be very difficult to succeed at the game unless the Investigators are very efficient and effective at selecting appropriate tasks to take at different points in the game.

The only downside I can think of is the randomness of events that occur don't always appear to be related to the overall story and some events can repeat due to a small number of location cards that come with the base game.

Overall, a fun and challenging co-operative game that emphasises theme, teamwork and strategy.
