Eldritch Horror

470 SEK
An ancient evil is stirring. You are part of a team of unlikely heroes engaged in an international struggle to stop the gathering darkness. To do so, you’ll have to defeat foul monsters, travel to Other Worlds, and solve obscure mysteries surrounding this unspeakable horror. The effort may drain your sanity and cripple your body, but if you fail, the Ancient One will awaken and rain doom upon the known world. 

Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game for one to eight players, based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. In Eldritch Horror, investigators travel the globe in an urgent quest to save the world from a diabolical, omnipotent Ancient One.

With terror spreading across the globe, you and your fellow investigators will venture to the far corners of the world. From the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas to the bustling streets of San Francisco, you and your group of investigators will travel to the world’s major cities, its most remote wildernesses, and everywhere in-between to prevent an impending global catastrophe… the awakening of an Ancient One whose arrival will cast the world into eternal darkness.

Every element of Eldritch Horror is designed to immerse you in its narrative theme of world-spanning horror and adventure. As the game unfolds, the narrative woven throughout each and every mechanic intensifies the pressure.

With tensions running high, and the fate of the world in your hands in these last, desperate days, the choices your group makes could have devastating consequences.

Hop a train from Shanghai to Istanbul, hire a witchdoctor in Buenos Aires, or stock up on holy water in Rome… just make your preparations count. You’ll need to work efficiently to defeat the horrors that await you. After all, with each passing day, an elder being of untold power draws closer to devouring our world. Only by solving three unique mysteries, represented by the tasks on Ancient One-specific Mystery cards, can your team of investigators save humanity and win the game!

Eldritch Horror includes several features designed to ensure a unique experience each and every time you play. With over three-hundred cards, you can be assured of amazing variety in encounters, Mythos effects, and more. And since each Ancient One has dedicated decks of Mystery and Research cards, you’ll not only select an Ancient One, you’ll select an entire style of play.

Further contributing to the game’s replayability, twelve intrepid investigators stand ready to defend the world from a threat that only they truly understand. Take the role of expedition leader Leo Anderson, influential actress Lola Hayes, or any of the included heroes. Since each investigator offers his or her own unique skills, starting assets, and approaches to winning, you’re sure to find a favorite persona for saving the world.

The way will be dangerous and the stakes have never been higher. The Ancient Ones are stirring, casting a shadow across the world. You must fight back. Gather your team, research the clues scattered around the globe, and solve the mysteries surrounding the Great Old Ones.

Venture across the high seas or deep into the wild to battle monsters, uncover ancient secrets, and gather dark knowledge as you work to prevent the coming catastrophe. The horror is here. The fate of our world is in your hands.
Your journey begins now.
Are you ready?
