Game Overview

Eldritch Horror is a cooperative game of investigation and horror inspired by the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. In each game, one of the Ancient Ones, a being of unimaginable power that predates time itself, is awakening.

Players take on the roles of investigators who are attempting to solve mysteries, defend humanity from unimaginable horrors, and ultimately banish the Ancient One from this world. If investigators fail at their task, the Ancient One awakens, and mankind is doomed.
