Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.
Arkham Horror 3rd Edition
The year is 1926, and it is the height of the Roaring Twenties. Flappers dance till dawn in smoke-filled speakeasies, drinking alcohol supplied by rum runners and the mob. It’s a celebration to end all celebrations in the aftermath of the War to End All Wars.
Throw your old Akrham and Eldritch horror collection in the trash boys and upgrade to the all new "streamlined" version,
I'll definitely want to try it out though.
The new art looks good.

I'm thinking it sounds a bit like Arkham Horror the Card Game. You start off not knowing what's going on, but as you reach certain goals, and make different choices, more is revealed.
Not a fan of scenarios vs 2nds sandboxy nature and prefer an old-fashioned board over tiles. Not looking for another FFG money-drain either right now. At best I'd say I'm cautiously optimistic about this. Will wait for some post-release reviews.
But I'm definitely excited to find out more about it. The card game is really good, and while I love and adore Arkham Horror 2nd ed, I wouldn't mind a bit less bloat.
Agreed, the hexagonal modular puzzle piece boards are a turn-off.

This looks like one of those games aimed at the younger set, where if you're over 30 you probably aren't interested, but under 30 and you might be interested. Like, "This ain't yo dad's Arkham Horror, fam!"
