The Gate Has Closed

Arkham Nights 2016 Is Sold Out

“Out of what crypt they crawl, I cannot tell,
But every night I see the rubbery things,
Black, horned, and slender, with membranous wings,
They come in legions on the north wind’s swell.”
–H.P. Lovecraft, Night-Gaunts

The ghoulish month of October has nearly arrived, and Arkham Nights 2016, our annual celebration of Lovecraftian horror and gaming, has sold out! You can be sure that this October 14-15 will be an Arkham Nights like no other, whether you’re walking the streets in Arkham Horror: The Card Game, entering a cursed house in Mansions of Madness Second Edition, or experiencing the mythos in any other way!

Prepare for the Worst

The veils between dimensions have drawn thin as the portentous time approaches. Creatures from other worlds have slipped into Earth, and their mere existence is enough to drive sanity from your mind. At Arkham Nights 2016, you’ll have the chance to come face to face with these monstrosities.

A pantheon of Lovecraftian games await anyone who passes beyond the threshold of the Fantasy Flight Games Center this October. You may test your skills as an investigator in the brand-new Arkham Horror: The Card Game, or you may go back to the origin of the madness: playing the board game Arkham Horror with its original designer, Richard Launius. You can pass beneath stooping gables and sinister architecture in the newly released second edition of Mansions of Madness. Or, you can fight evil across the world and in the Miskatonic University Museum with Eldritch Horror and Elder Sign

Everyone who preregistered for Arkham Nights 2016 will receive an exclusive gift bag!

There are countless options of games to play, but there are also special events, unique scenarios, and opportunities to play with the game designers throughout the weekend. You can learn what went into the creation of Arkham Horror: The Card Game during a presentation by designers Nate French and Matt Newman. You can take part in massive, eighteen-player scenarios for Eldritch Horror and Arkham Horror. You’ll even be able to play in an all-day Invocation Event for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, challenging you and dozens of other players to play through the entire Night of the Zealot campaign and the exclusive Curse of the Rougarou scenario, tracking your results for us to post later! And of course, there's an exclusive prize bag available for everyone who preregistered, as you can see above!

The Nightmare Begins
