    Lovecraft's writtings are not about horror: more about fascination … like poetry , athmosphere ,

    The only thing that bugs me about this game is that when you lose, it makes sense to have a board full of monsters, but when you solve the mysteries and win what about these monsters, you just let them be? I know that the game gives you enough choice as to go hunt them and kill as many as you want before you win if you have the time and that rarely happens. Other then that the game is wonderfull, funny and beautifully made. I own a copy, bought it about a month ago (I was going for arkham horror card game but couldnt find it in Greece), already played 10 games, eight of them solo and had fun. If you make a startup box, which i did, it sets up pretty quickly so reducing the time you need to setup and put it all back when you finish is worth it. I do love this game and my husband also like it and I have to say that it is our first game other than monopoly/risk/reversi games. I am a gamer – mostly pc adventure – but he is not – so at first I thought that he would hate it, but he didnt. He even helped me with the box. So I am seeing myself buying the expantions and completing my collection of E.H. someday.

    WE worship Cthulhu for the same reason we worship the Alien, with an added bonus: Lovecraft stopped after the first story (OK, I would be partial to "Cthulhus", by James Cameron… :D)

    Perfectly put! Fully agree. Great game! Indiana Jones style.

    I agree with Tom.

    Never played a tabletop game, but this one seems interesting might give it a shot

    I wanted to like this game so much just like Tom does, but it was not to be. My first game quickly had a quest pop up that was impossible to complete or even try to complete. Wow, what fun, a game you can't interact with! Then instead of forming a story the game plays out like a script written by an alien. A not too bright alien. You get involved in seedy deals in back alleys of India, after surviving the danger you get… a revolver! Sure couldn't buy one of those in stores during the 20s. Meanwhile on the other side of the world another character gets a loan from the Mafia so he can buy… a shotgun! Yup, better call Lucky Luciano to finance that small purchase, because that is how life is on Earth. Subsequent games weren't any better. No story, no fun mechanisms, no actual interaction with the Lovecraftian theme beyond some poorly written card flavor text, not my kind of game.

    I live in miami and i cannot find stores near me to be able to browse and purchase. Usually have to drive to another county to purchase. These reviews help me out. I just watch then order online

    Love the Dice Tower. Not loving the random photos popping up throughout the video. Just give us some game images and I'm happy.

    I find that playing this game with two players is a little too light and not enough sense of urgency. Has anyone else found that? I was thinking of a House Rule where cultists when they come through a gate are 'hunters' and move each encounter phase towards the nearest investigator.

    Nice video! I preffer other FFG Cthulhu games exactly for the same reasons why Tom likes Eldritch: because it looks like more of an Indiana Jones game than a horror game (and I love horror!).

    About the editting "tricks" used during the video, I don't like them so much…

  • Evan Schmalz 2 months ago

    One of my favorite games. I want to play now!

    i love it too!! i can't wait to finally beat an elder god and also get some small expansions to fill up the story

    Mansions of Madness 2nd. ed. beats any Elder/Eldritch/Arkham game there is.

    Funny thing that you post this on H.P.Lovecraft's birthday. (August 20th, 1890)

    For us AH is still better than EH. Yes, it is a beast to set up, the fighting and monster managment is clunky, but it has a lot more to do: change your stats, go to the police station and sell portals/monsters. If you want to heal – go to the hospital, need a spell – to the library etc.
    EH was pitched as streamlined AH, but is's really not. It went more global and cut corners here and there, but added the hussle with tickets, expeditions and random with closing the gates.

    Who chose the tank from Blaster Master? Derek? Tom?

    I remember when once, fighting Ithaqua (ice Yeti that brings next ice age) my character died. He died while visiting antarctic, because he got bitten by snake hidden in tall grass. Word was doomed because of this.
