Fantasy Flight has announced that their cooperative horror, Arkham Horror: The Card Game, has been revised!
If you are unfamiliar with Arkham Horror: The Card Game then there are a few things to know going in: Its a campaign style game set in the early 1900’s where Lovecraftian horrors are conspiring to enter our reality. Each player takes on the role of an investigator looking to thwart these terrible horrors from beyond. Each turn you’ll be moving your investigator to different locations, searching for clues, and fighting monsters. If you manage to fulfill a scenario’s goal you win, but if you take too long the cosmic horrors will have their way, which is never good.
The core set now has a new revamped system plus a number of quality-of-life improvements. Careful to preserve the essence of the beloved card game, Fantasy Flight has not added new cards or changed the campaign, but instead has tweaked some of the cards and added a selection of higher-level cards from earlier expansions to expand your options. What this all means is that fans who already own the core set will not need to buy the new version, but new players looking to get into the game can now start their collection off on the right foot.
The Revised Core Set comes with everything you need to start playing including enough cards and components for up to three other players. You can pre-order your own copy of the Arkham Horror: The Card Game Revised Core Set (AHC60) at your local retailer or online through the Fantasy Flight webstore today!
