Something evil stirs in Arkham, and only you can stop it. Blurring the traditional lines between roleplaying and card game experiences, Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a Living Card Game of Lovecraftian mystery, monsters, and madness! In the game, you and your friend (or up to three friends with two Core Sets) become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. You have your talents, sure, but you also have your flaws. Perhaps you've dabbled a little too much in the writings of the Necronomicon, and its words continue to haunt you. Perhaps you feel compelled to cover up any signs of otherworldly evils, hampering your own investigations in order to protect the quiet confidence of the greater population. Perhaps you'll be scarred by your encounters with a ghoulish cult. No matter what compels you, no matter what haunts you, you'll find both your strengths and weaknesses reflected in your custom deck of cards, and these cards will be your resources as you work with your friends to unravel the world's most terrifying mysteries. Each of your adventures in Arkham Horror LCG carries you deeper into mystery. You'll find cultists and foul rituals. You'll find haunted houses and strange creatures. And you may find signs of the Ancient Ones straining against the barriers to our world... The basic mode of play in Arkham LCG is not the adventure, but the campaign. You might be scarred by your adventures, your sanity may be strained, and you may alter Arkham's landscape, burning buildings to the ground. All your choices and actions have consequences that reach far beyond the immediate resolution of the scenario at hand — and your actions may earn you valuable experience with which you can better prepare yourself for the adventures that still lie before you.

After playing Eldritch Horror and feeling some randomness in the events, I walked away from the games in the collection. Until I found the Arkham Horror LCG - what a brilliant game. The player feels effectively within the story, with events making sense thematically and among themselves. The simplicity of the actions coupled with the depth of the deckbuilding and the evolution of the characters throughout the campaign makes this game something unique. Looking forward to play it more.
Theme is gripping and comes out well when playing the game. They could have added a second copy of some player cards to make it possible for deck building (right now you are pretty much only able to deck build when playing solo). I recommend to study the rules thoroughly before starting the game with a friend, otherwise it could slow down a lot. After getting the rules, the game play is smooth and involves interesting choices and risks. The mechanics are great as is the storytelling. I recommend trying it out.
Hands down, the best Living Card Game there is! Great mechanism, nice campaign with a lot of story and good solo play as well. You will need to go through the rules couple of times and maybe check a video online as it is not that easy to get used to it but you will be very satisfied once you start playing!
After seeing the Arkham horror and Eldrich horror boardgames,i really liked the premise and setting for it,but wasnt sure on the long set up times for these games.Well this is where Arkham horror LCG comes in.Because its all played within cards,the set up time is kept down but the enjoyment and tense feel of the series is still there.The gameplay is smooth once you familiarize yourself with the rules and play thru a couple of acts and the card detail and artwork is beautiful.Add into the mix all the expansions which add new investigators,player cards and new scenarios along with more terror and its a winner for sure.The options for this game are brilliant from creating your own player decks to experiencing different objectives and challenges with each new mission you face.This is my first purchase of a LCG style game and has certainly been the right choice.
