ARKHAM HORROR : THE CARD GAME
The boundaries between worlds have drawn perilously thin…
Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a cooperative Living Card Game® set amid a backdrop of Lovecraftian horror. As the Ancient Ones seek entry to our world, one to two investigators (or up to four with two Core Sets) work to unravel arcane mysteries and conspiracies.
Their efforts determine not only the course of your game, but carry forward throughout whole campaigns, challenging them to overcome their personal demons even as Arkham Horror: The Card Game blurs the distinction between the card game and roleplaying experiences.
"The oldest and strongest emotion of
mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is the unknown."
- H.P. Lovecraft
Great Western Trail
You are rival cattlemen in 19th century America, herding cattle in a circular trail from Texas to Kansas City. Your cattle are then shipped by train, earning you money and victory points. Needless to say, each time you arrive in Kansas City, you want to have your most valuable cattle in tow. However, mastering the Great Western Trail not only requires that you keep your herd in good shape, but also that you wisely use the various buildings along the trail. It might also be a good idea to hire capable staff: cowboys to improve your herd, craftsmen to build your very own buildings, or engineers for the important railroad line.
Great Western Trail is designed by the renowned game designer, Alexander Pfister, and has been designated in the Stronghold Games The Great Designer Series - #7. Mr. Pfister has won several game awards for his recent designs of Mombassa and Isle of Skye.
