Fantasy Flight Games, which has created some buzz with its Cthulhu CCG (see 'Call of Cthulhu Collectible Card Game'), is planning to release a revised and updated edition of the Call of Cthulhu: Arkham Horror Board Game. The game's original creator, Richard Launius, has provided revised and updated rules for the game he originally published through Chaosium almost twenty years ago. The new edition of the game will also benefit from stunning new artwork.
Unlike many board games, which are competitive in nature, the Arkham Horror board game is cooperative, with up to eight players working together to put an end to an outbreak of cataclysmic horror as the Great Old Ones menace the town of Arkham, Massachusetts. Rated for players 12 years old and up, the Call of Cthulhu: Arkham Horror Board Game will retail for $49.95 when it is released in December.
