Designed for 1-8 players, Arkham Horror is a cooperative adventure game of survival, horror, and investigation. Players take on the role of an investigator, each with his own unique backstory, abilities, and equipment. On their own, it’s likely they won’t make it through the night. But together, these unlikely heroes might stand in the very presence of an Ancient One and live to tell the tale…if they can retain their sanity!
Arkham Horror features a unique way for players to customize their investigators. Each investigator has three groups of two skills which can be adjusted throughout the game. When you change one skill you affect the other skill in that group. So if you prefer to have extra speed, don’t expect to sneak by any enemies that turn. Balance is key. At the start every turn players will have to plan ahead when adjusting their skills so they have the right skill for the right situation.
