The Elder Sign, and Other Games

The people at Fantasy Flight Games are turning out more Lovecraftian goodies for gamers this month. Aside from the usual stream of new expansions for their Call of Cthulhu LCG, Arkham Horror novels, and Mansions of Madness, they have put out a new game: Elder Sign.

Ostensibly it's a rewrite of Arkham Horror of a sort, in that it's more a card/dice game than a board game. AH fans will recognize many aspects of play, and will take to the rules readily, but it's different enough to require them to learn the new rules set. It's also somewhat less complex will make it easier to teach the little one, and costs less than Arkham Horror. It's for 1-8 players too, so you can do it solitaire.

You may also wish to take a peek on Kickstarter for the Miskatonic School for Girls deck-building game. They're making decent headway on their goal, and the card game looks to be a hilarious take on all things Mythos set in (obviously) a girls school.

And finally on a side note, for those of you whose fandom extends into Kaiju territory, in a month or two you should be able to get Destroy All Monsters and Godzilla vs Megalon on DVD and Blu Ray from Tokyo Shock.
