A Gate Opens in Roseville

Pre-registration for Arkham Nights 2011 will begin soon

Behind everything crouched the brooding, festering horror of the ancient town [of Arkham], and of the mouldy, unhallowed garret gable where he wrote and studied and wrestled with figures and formulae when he was not tossing on the meagre iron bed. His ears were growing sensitive to a preternatural and intolerable degree, and he had long ago stopped the cheap mantel clock whose ticking had come to seem like a thunder of artillery. At night the subtle stirring of the black city outside, the sinister scurrying of rats in the wormy partitions, and the creaking of hidden timbers in the centuried house, were enough to give him a sense of strident pandemonium.      - H.P. Lovecraft, Dreams in the Witch-House

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.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890 - 1937) is considered by many to be the definitive author of twentieth century weird fiction and horror, penning such classic works as The Call of Cthulhu, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, At the Mountains of Madness, and many more. His tales of supernatural horror and cosmic dread have inspired generations of writers and artists, as well as Fantasy Flight Games' own Cthulhu Mythos-themed games.

Arkham Horror is a game of mystery and madness set in Arkham, Massachusetts in the 1920's. In this wildly popular board game, one to eight players cooperate to investigate the strange happenings about the town, and race to prevent ancient evil from surfacing. In Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, two players 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.

Arkham Nights offers an experience well beyond gaming, however. You’ll be immersed in the occult horror of Lovecraft’s chilling universe, and unless you keep your wits about you, the price may be your very sanity...

This October 14th-16th, come to Roseville, Minnesota, and experience the terror and mystery of Arkham Nights!
