Arkham Horror - Game Guide - Chapter 1: Introduction

Hello there,

First of all, thanks for browsing the Arda Games website. You’ve probably landed on this page, because you’re curious about Arkham Horror: The Card Game. If so… fantastic! You’re exactly where you need to be.

However, if you’re already familiar with the game, please know up-front that the following guide may not be of great service to you, as it has been written for people with little to no prior experience with the game. If you do decide to keep on reading any way, please feel free to send us any feedback you might have, as we’re always interested in improving this guide any way we can.

Still with us? Great!

As just mentioned, this guide has been written for potentially new players, and is therefore our attempt to introducing more people to this fantastic game. The following guide will take you through several chapters, each focusing on the various aspects of the game, so you can familiarize yourself with Arkham Horror: The Card Game.

Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a campaign game for one to four people, blurring the lines between roleplaying games and traditional card games or board games. Each player will don the role of character, known as an investigator, through which players will explore supernatural occurrences, defeat enemies (humans as well as… well, not humans), all in the attempt to save the world from an impending doom. The game is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cuthulu Mythis; a world of mystery, where the players will start out in the titular town of Arkham in New England, USA. Most campaigns will take you beyond the town borders, and have you explore the world from the frozen tundras in the north to the lustrous jungle near the equator (more on that later).

For now, click on to the next chapter, and we’ll take our first steps into Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
