|Mansions of Madness | Published 19 November 2010|
Man rules now where They ruled once; They shall soon rule where man rules now. After summer is winter, and after winter summer. They wait patient and potent, for here shall They reign again.
- H.P. Lovecraft, Quoting from the Necronomicon in "The Dunwich Horror"
With over fifteen years of creating the most immersive and thematic gaming experiences available, Fantasy Flight Games has built a reputation for components of the highest quality. Whether exploring a dungeon’s depths in a world of high fantasy, maneuvering a massive fleet through a hostile galaxy, or battling otherworldly horrors in the streets of Arkham, players have learned to expect a level of aesthetic detail that captures the imagination.
It’s with these high standards in mind that we announce an updated estimate for the release of Mansions of Madness, the board game of occult horror and mystery. Some of the initial monster molds resulted in figures that did not meet our expectations of excellence, and consequently had to be redone. While this decision will ensure a product of the highest quality, it will also result in a delay.
Mansions of Madness will be available during the first quarter of 2011. We realize that this is beyond the range of dates we originally announced. However, we’re confident that once you see the final product, you’ll agree it was well worth the wait.
For more on this exciting narrative board game, check out our description page and our past previews: The Origins of Evil, Brought Together By Strange Forces, Follow the Clues, and Your Host for this Evening’s Horror. Keep watching for more in the coming weeks, and prepare to play your part in a sanity-bending story of mystery and terror!
Mansions of Madness is a macabre game of horror, insanity, and mystery for two to five players. Based on the beloved fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, Mansions of Madness tells a story in which one player takes on the role of the keeper, a malevolent force working to complete a sinister plot, and all other players take on the roles of investigators, the unlikely heroes who gather to oppose him.
well, uh, this is plain ridiculous. some of us players are waiting for the newest tide of iron expansion "fury of the bear" for more than seven months now. only one "preview" has been released so far. mansions of madness was announced months later with app. 3-4 "previews" already being published.
this game company is not the same i appreciated years ago. sad but true :-(
Hmmm... there goes my one item on my Christmas list, but hopefully we'll be getting some REALLY awesome figures.
I'd rather see a delayed release than see shoddy miniatures in a game like this.
Not quite the update I've been looking for, but I guess it's nice to know I won't be getting this for Christmas this year.
