Love it or hate it? Do you still play it?
Arkham Horror is now so popular that Hot Topicas sells a whole line of Arkham Horror T-shirts.
The first edition of Arkham Horror, designed by Richard Launius, was published in 1987 by Chaosium. It was based on the Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu role-playing game, and Larnius originaly proposed that it be titled Call of Cthulhu: The Board Game. Arkham Horror won the Origin's Award for "Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Boardgame of 1987."
In 2005, Arkahm Horror 2nd edition was published by Fantasy Flight Games. Richard Larnius and Kevin Wilson completely revamped the game, removing the roll-and-move mechanic, adding clue tokens, and replacing results tables with encounter cards.Arkham Horror 2nd edition proved popular, and even made an appearenc in the television show "South Park." Fantasy Flight went on to release 8 expansions for the game with the final expansion, Miskatonic Horror (the expansion for the expansions), being released in 2011.
In 2018, Fantasy Flight released a 3rd edition of Arkham Horror, with significantly different game play from the second edition.
Arkham Horror 2nd edition has many loyal and passionate fans. However, many people strongly dislike it, calling it long, bloated and clunky.
What do you think? Love it or hate it? If you were a fan, has the 3rd edition or Eldridge Horror replace Arkham Horror for you? Or do you still play it? And which is your favorite T-shirt? I like the King in Yellow one the best myself.
