Have you been looking for a new horror board game to try during this year’s spooky season? Well, the good news is that Arkham Horror is now available for 29% less on Amazon. Now you can enjoy some spine-tingling delights with your family and friends for just $49.99 this Halloween.

Based on the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, Arkham Horror puts you into the shoes of an ‘Arkham Investigator’ who must wander the dark, creepy streets as you work to defeat unfathomable alien beings (known as the Ancient Ones) and their evil cultist followers. One of the biggest strengths of Lovecraft’s writing was always the scary and mysterious world he created, full of eldritch abominations which drive people mad if they see them. Arkham Horror beautifully captures the atmosphere of his world and lets you explore it through an engaging board game.

Even though the gameplay isn’t too hard to grasp, the subject can be pretty scary for younger players so it’s recommended for anyone upwards of the age of 14. You can play with up to six players, and games can last for around three hours, giving you a good reason not to answer the door to any unexpected trick-or-treaters on October 31.

Even if you’re not familiar with the world of H. P. Lovecraft, the game is designed to be accessible to all and is a great first step into the world of his iconic world of occult horror. With multiple characters to choose from in the game, each playthrough follows a different narrative path, meaning you get a lot of variety each time you play. Could this be a Halloween tradition in the making?
