The Investigators of Arkham Horror

“There are horrors beyond life’s edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man’s evil prying calls them just within our range.”
–H.P. Lovecraft, The Thing on the Doorstep

It is the roaring 1920s, and strange things have been happening in the sleepy New England town of Arkham, Massachusetts. People have gone missing. Others have reported sightings of indescribable creatures. The very air thickens with a sense of foreboding like an evil mist in the streets. The Ancient Ones are stirring…

The alternate history of the Arkham Horror Files universe is one of terrors so unthinkable that merely catching sight of one can cause you to lose your grip on reality. The greatest of these are the Ancient Ones, terrifying beings from beyond time and space that threaten to wake from their eons-long slumber and return to the world. Even in their slumber, these Ancient Ones reach across the barriers between worlds to affect our reality. They touch the dreams of troubled mortals, many of whom become cultists, and they unleash spine-chilling monsters and eldritch horrors.

Over the course of its beautifully illustrated 264 full-color pages, The Investigators of Arkham Horror immerses you in the action, terror, and mythos of the Arkham Horror Files setting. You’ll find your favorite investigators thrust into action in a series of fifty-two short stories that serve as the backstory to your next Arkham Horror Files game.

History says the expedition failed, but history is rapidly changing, and if you don’t repair this temporal rift, history—and your reality—may fall apart completely.

In the Expedition: Endurance expansion for T.I.M.E Stories, when Bob gives you the mission, he appears as stressed as he’s ever been. “Alright kiddos,” he begins, “I won’t hide that the situation is dire.” He goes on to label the anomaly as one of “the worst sort.”

Meanwhile, Sam and Laura are conspicuously absent. It’s clear that tensions are running high. The office isn’t functioning at one-hundred percent. And to top it off, Bob suspects the intervention of supernatural forces…

  2. Is everyone ready? Then a transformation card is turned up. It will show which sections of each artwork are to be exchanged.

Troyes and The Ladies of Troyes – Back in Print!

In Troyes, recreate four centuries of history of this famous city of the Champagne region of France. Each player manages their segment of the population (represented by a horde of dice) and their hand of cards, which represent the three primary domains of the city: religious, military, and civil. Players can also offer cash to their opponents’ populace in order to get a little moonlighting out of them—anything for more fame!

Make your underlings:

  • work on the cathedral
  • combat misfortune
  • bustle about the city
  • and other such tasks that are below your family’s stature

In The Ladies of Troyes, the women make an appearance in the form of three new Character cards that you can include in your games. A new action allows players to move their guard along the ramparts in order to access one of 16 new activities outside the city. Each player is represented by a new purple die (representing the head of the family), which cannot be bought by other players. The head of the family can carry out civil, military, or religious actions — your choice! The Ladies of Troyes also includes 27 new Activity cards and six Event cards to add still more variety to the game!

Carcassonne – Back in Print!

Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland or some combination thereof, and it must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera. Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.

During a game of Carcassonne, players are faced with decisions like: “Is it really worth putting my last meeple there?” or “Should I use this tile to expand my city, or should I place it near my opponent instead, giving him a hard time to complete his project and score points?” Since players place only one tile and have the option to place one meeple on it, turns proceed quickly even if it is a game full of options and possibilities.
