A Weekend of Lovecraftian Horror

Announcing Arkham Nights 2011, October 14-16 in Roseville, MN

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.
