Stop me if you've heard this before, but Fantasy Flight Games has done it again. "Eldritch Horror" takes all the things you loved about "Arkham Horror," streamlines them, adds some cool, intuitive new rules, widens the scope, and significantly condenses playing time. This game also reminds me quite a bit of Flying Frog Production's "Fortune & Glory." I don't know if I'll play F&G ever again.

At its heart, "Eldritch Horror" is a story telling game. Players search the globe for clues in order to solve mysteries that will prevent an Elder God from coming back to Earth to destroy humanity. In each location they visit they encounter ghouls or smaller mysteries, usually requiring them to roll dice equal to their specific skill set. Characters also are given the ability to enhance their skills by visiting certain locations. One of my favorite aspects of the game is how when your character dies, you are not eliminated, you simply select a new character to play. Your original character does not just disappear however- he becomes an encounter and your new character or someone else may attempt to gain their fallen comrade's clues and assets. It's really a cool mechanic that I haven't seen before, and adds to the thrilling, grand narrative.

If you like grand adventure games and enjoy a fun, horror theme, you really need to get your hands on "Eldritch Horror." I'm already jazzed thinking about what future expansions will bring to this wonderful game!

My husband and I had purchased Arkham Horror on a whim, (not a good idea, in general always do your research first) because after we began to learn the game, we became extremely frustrated with trying to play AH. Little did we know that our first attempt at getting into RPG board games, we had purchased the most difficult game in existence. We loved the story and the general play of AH, but we could barely finish the game because spent more time learning and reading the rules for the game than actually playing. After multiple attempts and fights, we shelved the game. Then after some months had passed, we came across Eldritch Horror.
Before we even came close to considering purchasing the game, we did some research, (our big mistake with AH). After seeing that it was faster and got rid of the heaviness of AH, we decided to enter the battle against the Ancient Ones again. Am I glad we did!
We love playing this game! It has everything that you want from an HP Lovecraft themed game, without all the heaviness and clumsy mechanics. If you loved the idea of what AH was but hated actually playing it, this game will scratch that itch and more!!! But do your own research! Lots of great play through videos on youtube to demonstrate the play. They are long but well worth the watch to make a good decision and learning the play.

I'll keep this short. If you are a fan of Arkham, get this. If you've never played Arkham, get this. It's stream lined Arkham. The instructions (compared to Arkham) are fantastic. You get a quick (16 pages) rule book and also a reference book to bring to the table. During our first play through the reference book was a great asset (especially when rolling for assets:).
Overall the game is great fun. It is Arkham on a global scale yet more manageable and easier to jump into. Also, the theme still holds up. And as always, Fantasy Flight components are top notch.
Only word of warning: it comes with only four Ancient Ones. I'm assuming, like Arkham, there are many expansions forthcoming.

I purchased Eldritch Horror on my lunch break at work one day. I had arrived at work earlier that morning but couldn't let go of the feeling that I was missing something--I almost saw dark creatures lurking beyond every corner--and I had stumbled upon a hidden clue to some unimaginable mystery in the front page of the morning paper. I checked the Amazon page for the game compulsively--were there new reviews? Had creatures from beyond the veil plundered Amazon's warehouses and it was out of stock? Or--gasp--had I imagined this game entirely, held thrall by the whim of the being so vast my mind could barely comprehend it's existence, let alone hope to escape?

Ordering the game soothed my compulsion for a time, but then I made the mistake of checking the tracking information--and it hadn't even shipped yet! How could it reach me from the depths of the pyramids, across the heavy storms and choppy seas that had so plagued the Atlantic to reach my 2nd story flat in San Francisco in the mere two days promised delivery date. I checked the tracking info again fifteen minutes later, then ten minutes after that, and found myself caught in the grip of paranoia, unable to leave my phone for more than seconds at a time.

Forty eight hours and no sleep later I finally laid my hands on the box. I ripped the plastic shrink wrap away with one swipe of my gnarled, clawed fingers and slid the lid off the box to find--a serious product review:

1) Components

Overall component quality is top notch--but number/storage of components is abysmal. You've got pretty standard punch out cardboard fiddly bits (though perhaps more of them then you are used to), and several (literally over a dozen) decks of cards.
