Eldritch Review

Across the globe, ancient evil is stirring. Now, you and your trusted circle of colleagues must travel around the world, working against all odds to hold back the approaching horror. Foul monsters, brutal encounters, and obscure mysteries will take you to your limit and beyond. All the while, you and your fellow investigators must unravel the otherworldy mysteries scattered around the globe in order to push back the gathering mayhem that threatens to overwhelm humanity. The end draws near! Do you have the courage to prevent global destruction? Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of terror and adventure in which one to eight players take the roles of globetrotting investigators working to solve mysteries, gather clues, and protect the world from an Ancient One – that is, an elder being intent on destroying our world. Each Ancient One comes with its own unique decks of Mystery and Research cards, which draw you deeper into the lore surrounding each loathsome creature. Discover the true name of Azathoth or battle Cthulhu on the high seas.

Shadowrift: Archfiends
In this follow up expansion to the original Shadowrift, Archfiends pits the heroes of legend directly against the master of each faction bent on destroying the city of Haven. In addition to the monsters faced during the course of a regular game, the heroes must now contend with the Archfiend's scheming and personal onslaught, and once the Shadowrifts are sealed the heroes must defeat this terrifying villain in mortal combat. Archfiends expands the cooperative deckbuilding game Shadowrift. The Archfiend will have its own special deck that allows it to wade into the middle of the heroes and wreck all their plans for saving the town. There are six Archfiend decks - one keyed to each of the six monster factions from the Shadowrift base game. Will you emerge from the battle victorious? Or will the Archfiend see you bloody, battered and beaten? Checkout Shadowrift Archfields here.
