|Arkham Nights 2011 | Published 25 August 2011|
You see them? You see them? You see the things that float and flop about you and through you every moment of your life? You see the creatures that form what men call the pure air and the blue sky? Have I not succeeded in breaking down the barrier; have I not shewn you worlds that no other living men have seen?
–H.P. Lovecraft, “From Beyond”
October 14th-16th, 2011, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present Arkham Nights, an exciting weekend special event filled with countless hours of gaming, mystery and gothic horror! Join us at the magnificent Fantasy Flight Games Event Center in Roseville, Minnesota and share in this celebration of the venerable setting created by master storyteller H.P. Lovecraft. We will have tables filled with sets of Arkham Horror, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, Mansions of Madness, and Elder Sign for players of all levels. And a few lucky attendees will win the chance to help design a future Mansions of Madness expansion!
Games filled with supernatural terror
Arkham Horror is a wildly popular board game of mystery and madness set in the 1920’s of Arkham, Massachusetts. In it, players cooperate to investigate the strange happenings about the town, and race to prevent ancient evil from surfacing. Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game pits two players against each other as they venture deep into the Cthulhu Mythos where investigators clash with the Ancient Ones and Elder Gods for the fate of the world!
Meanwhile, 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. And in Elder Sign, one to eight players cooperate in a fast-paced dice game of supernatural intrigue by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror.
Break down the barriers
Arkham Nights offers a full weekend of gaming… and an experience that goes well beyond gaming.
All weekend long, players can join any of the scheduled, open, or Learn to Play tables of their favorite Arkham games, including tables hosted by Fantasy Flight Games employees and game developers. Fans of Arkham Horror can participate in one of the exciting scenarios unique to Arkham Nights while Call of Cthulhu players can attend a tournament to support or prevent the rise of the Ancient Ones.
Attendees have the opportunity to meet and converse with developers, including a talk on Elder Sign with Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson. You’ll also discover unrevealed secrets as we preview upcoming releases for the Lovecraft mythos.
Mementos from a weekend of madness
Attendees all receive exclusive gift bags that include velveteen Hastur bags, lanyards, new Ancient Ones, and 24-page booklets, featuring a new Arkham Horror scenario, Call of Cthulhu decklists, and an excerpt of the second novel from The Lord of Nightmares Trilogy.
In addition, early registrants each receive a custom, commemorative pin and custom nametag for the weekend. Moreover, early registrants all have their names entered into a special drawing, and three lucky winners can help develop more material for Mansions of Madness (see our Terms and Conditions).

Do we get hotel deals like last year?
[ADMIN: Information about hotel accommodations can be found on the Arkham Nights Support Page.]
I've never been to Arkham nights before. Do they release a schedule ahead of time?
If it was in my area than I think that I would attend just to be able to ask questions about certain games, especially game rules issues. It would be helpful to have a Fantasy Flight employees who are specifically trained to run some tutorials, and that way a person can learn from the masters, but what they really should have is some kind of talking or discussion at the event. A person can acquire these games elsewhere, you know what I mean.
Nice Arkham Horror gifts but how can people who don't live in the USA get them? Still waiting for the GOOS from the last Arkham Nights to be made more widely available.
Is there a certain hotel i shoud go to?
I'd be nice if they could do a Call of Cthulhu LCG expansions reprinting the old CCG cards that have not been reprinted yet, in several deluxe expansions, independent of the monthly packs.
A Mansions boxed expansion has been confirmed, so that would be my guess.
Other than the books, what upcoming mythos releases are possible? Assuming they don't plan on expanding Arkham Horror anymore (which I hope is NOT the case), maybe a Mansions of Madness boxed expansion or maybe even something for Elder Sign?
So. Wish. I. Could. Be. There.

Somebody had better do a report of this. Please!
Same thing that NJROBIN: Atlantic ocean is too expensive to travel through for european who wish to come at that convention.
Please may the additional Ancient ones and scenarios be made available online for extrangers ?
Please can i request the additional Ancient ones and scenarios be made available to those of us unable to make it to the event at a later date either by a pdf or POD option. Unfortunately a large sea (the atlantic) seperates me from the event preventing me attending :-(
Thanks and good luck have fun those attending.
I hope I can make it again this year, even though last year I only made Friday night. I would love to win the opportunity to help design a MoM scenario!
