I am a huge Lovecraft fan.
Bought Many games covering his universe, card And boargames but ...sold them all. Some thing was not right, too long, too obvious, too Bad (cthulhu dice anyone?).

But i think i might have found one That might actually stay in my game collection And thats elder sign.

First it Plays solo, And i do play solo sometimes when no friends are available to play.

The art work And components are good.

It has a push your luck feel to it, some might dislike this but it makes for a great co op fun gaming night i think. So i have to rate this one a light game but not a no brainer as Many options are available.

The story line is good.

Very Happy

Ps: i have kept the RPG.

I bought the expansion for elder sign And find it great.

It adds two new dice, a cursed And a blessed Die, And tons of new cards.

Very Nice! Very Happy

Missed this - shame on me, big HPL fan here.

Our semi regular boardgame/rpg Saturday night group like Elder Sign.

It's co-op so you're not competing each other - means that players who aren't experienced 'gamers' can still enjoy the game and feel they are adding value to the team.

It's fairly tough, as any Cthulhu Mythos game should be.

And it's for up to 8 players - great!

Haven't played the expansion yet. Had it for months now but we just enjoy the base game so much. I think the issue is that out of 7 f us, 2 aren't experienced gamers so we tread slowly when adding expansions and additional rules etc.

I am allowed to say it now.
I was part of the bta team for the upcoming "streets of arkham" expansion coming out this Winter.

The game is getting better And harder to win. Laughing

I have had the chance to play the original game again tonight and it still a lot of fun.

Very Happy

Playtesting the forthcoming expansion made me forget how nice it is.
