The Pandorica Finally Opens! – The Miskatonic Horror Review

Well we are finally here gamers! For the entirety of Arkham Horror Month I’ve been foreshadowing the effects that Miskatonic has had on the expansions like another Doctor Who series and now I can at last tell you about them in more detail.

Pride and Prejudice Had a Similar Effect on Me – The King in Yellow Review

The second small box expansion in the release schedule features the King in Yellow, an infamous play that unhinges the mind of anybody who views it. I’m sure most of us have seen a movie or ten that has a similar effect and for me, my title of this review caused me to detest every English Literature lesson at school for the whole term while we read the book and watch the 6 HOUR long movie……………ugh!

Sailors Are The Least Of Your Worries! – The Kingsport Horror Review

3 more expansions to go! Wow, remind me not to do another cliché month again! On this review we’re heading to the fictional town of Kingsport made famous in “The Terrible Old Man” by H.P. Lovecraft. A seaport with dense fog, a lighthouse, a strange house on the cliff edge, it all sounds like a quality setting for Arkham Horror. But it’s up against Dunwich and Innsmouth though, which are quality expansions so does Kingsport rank up there with them or should you float the box out to sea?

If He Turns Me Into A Mummy You’re The First One I’m Coming After! – Curse of the Dark Pharaoh Review!

Originally released in 2006, this expansion was revised in 2011 to clarify a few rules and streamline it. This review is only concerned with the revised version and no reference will be made to the old one.

As Titles Go, It Doesn’t Exactly Strike Fear! – Black Goat of the Woods Review

The second to last small box expansion to the Arkham series is one of a controversial nature. A dangerous cult has risen in Arkham set to speed up the arrival of the Ancient One. Investigators have the chance to infiltrate the cult while performing the main objective of stopping the Ancient one – problem is however, that they risk corruption by doing so. Now it’s been said on a lot of forums that this story isn’t worth the effort and it’s actually a detriment to the group to follow it. Interesting dilemma – let’s find out more!

What Is It With Farms And Horror Stories? – The Dunwich Horror Review

Well we’ve covered a small box expansion so assuming I’m going to stick to taking it in turns, it’s time to cover a big box expansion. I also reviewed the last small expansion released by FFG so instead I’m going to turn my attention to the first big expansion! See there is a structure to my madness, which is completely unrelated to Cthulhu allegedly!

With Great Power. . . . Comes A World Of Hurt! – Lurker At The Threshold Review

LATT is the second to last expansion to be released for Arkham Horror and is one of the four “little box” expansions. The little box expansions introduce a few new rules and a variety of cards and tokens, but do not include a board unlike the “big box” expansions.

Did You Learn Nothing From Evil Dead? – Arkham Horror Review

In case you don’t get the reference, basically it’s well known that the best way to survive in the Arkham Horror universe is to not read anything you find! That also includes demonic looking giant books covered in barbed wire with “Do Not Read” etched in blood on the title!

So here we are! The first stage of Arkham Horror Month! As stated before I am going to do a separate review of every part of Arkham Horror throughout the whole month. But of course I need to explain how the base game works by itself first as that’s going to be your starting point. Now there is A LOT that goes on in Arkham Horror so the rule overview is going to have to be a little generalised, so bear with me, but hopefully you’ll get a general idea of what the aim of the game is and what mechanics are in operation.
