Arkham Horror: The Card Game Core Set
Something evil stirs in Arkham, and only you can stop it. Blurring the traditional lines between roleplaying and card game experiences, Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a game of cooperative investigations for one to two players (or up to four players with two Core Sets).
You and your friends become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. No matter what compels you, no matter what haunts you, you'll find both your strengths and weaknesses reflected in your custom deck of cards, and these cards will be your resources as you work with your friends to unravel the world's most terrifying mysteries.
Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a blend of the traditional customizable card game and roleplaying experiences. Explore locations, battle monsters, search for the right equipment, or race across the city—you're free to pursue whatever course of action seems best to you at the moment. Your actions aren't determined by the cards in your hand; instead, you'll find opportunities to make use of your cards, according to the actions you wish to take. You have three actions each round, and it's what you do when it's your turn to act that determines whether you will escape from a ravenous pack of ghouls, unmask a cult devoted to the Ancient Ones, or go mad. Your choices determine the shape of your adventures!
Each of your adventures carries you deeper into the mysteries that previously haunted only those unfortunate souls touched by madness or otherwise tuned to the senses that few of us often employ. You'll find cultists and foul rituals. You'll find haunted houses and strange creatures. And you may find signs of the Ancient Ones straining against the barriers to our world…
You might be scarred by your adventures, your sanity strained, and the onset of madness creeping in at the corners of your mind. You will make choices that determine whether or not your allies will continue working with you. You may alter Arkham's landscape, burning buildings to the ground. And you may gain valuable experience with which you can better prepare yourself for the adventures that still lie before you.
The Core Set comes with three adventures that link together in the Night of the Zealot campaign. Your successes or failures in the first of these adventures, The Gathering, will determine not only how you'll set up the future adventures, but they'll determine how much experience you'll be able to spend upgrading your deck.
