From the Manufacturer
It is the roaring 20's, and while there's electricity in the air, unnatural storms are brewing as well. Strange things are happening in the small Massachusetts town of Arkham; people have gone missing, sightings of indescribable creatures grow more and more frequent. And the very air thickens with a sense of foreboding that roils like an acrid mist through the streets.
The Ancient Ones are stirring...
Arkham Horror was originally published by Chaosium, Inc., in 1987. This new, updated edition features stunning new artwork and graphical design (including a new gameboard, counters, cards, and playing pieces) as well as revised and expanded rules from the game's original creator, Richard Launius.
Players can select from 16 unique playable investigator characters, each with unique abilities, and will square off against the diabolical servants of 8 Ancient Ones, including Ithaqua, Hastur, and the terrible Cthulhu! No fan of the Cthulhu Mythos will want to miss the opportunity to acquire this classic Call of Cthulhu board game!
Arkham Horror is a cooperative game for 1-8 players ages 12 and up, and can be played in 2-3 hours.

The only real drawback is the learning curve, as learning this without someone already familiar can be tedious and daunting. The setup time can also add up with all of the various cards and pieces. I certainly recommend it in spite of these obstacles, as neither Eldritch Horror or the Arkham Horror Card Game comes close to the depth this game has
Once you get into the game and portals start opening up the game gets harder especially if (like me) you just want to trigger location events and you go insane like 5 times and never get a weapon - I was a regular patient at the Arkham Mental Hospital which was rather amusing. My friends fared better receiving weapons early on in the game and taking down the bad guys.
The game has a whole slew of characters to play and more elder gods than I thought it would, the board, game tokens and cards are all good quality and the art is well made. (the back of the adventure cards kinda weird me out as there are like 6 images transposed on it and you can make out different things based on how you are seeing it)
All in all a fun time and a good way to spend an afternoon!
