  • I did like this game, especially the coop play and the 1 player option. However none of my friends liked it, too complex/games were too long, so I got rid of it. Good if you have people to play with.Devin3279January 13th, 2015 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I love the theme and gameplay. Meaty games are my bread and butter. Everyone needs to be able to commit the time. Even after many playthroughs (and expansions), a few bad rolls and unlucky draws canstrerdFebruary 3rd, 2014 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Enjoyable but very long. Have to have a group of people who are focused and willing to see it through to the end.tkjuddJanuary 18th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A great game with a great theme: fighting the elder horrors of the Cthulhu mythos. Arkham Horror is quite complex (and as an FFG game, has a ton of pieces), but it's great fun to play for a few hoursLoccloJanuary 17th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I think this is a great game for many people. However, it doesn't work for me. It's too long and too cumbersome for me to really want to play often. That said, I love the theme!LaboratoryFestivalNovember 19th, 2012 5 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The first play through is rough, as you try traverse through the monster rulebook. But everything sinks in on subsequent plays. A good group of friends is a must. One of my favorites.luckyhotdogsJuly 27th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A great co-op with a great theme, Arkham Horror pits investigators against Ancient Ones and their sinister plot against humankind. Dice-rolling, item-collecting, character-tweaking fun!ormmarineJuly 24th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Worst game I have ever played, IMHO. Long downtime between different players' turn, extremely luck-based, and boring after a couple of games. I game I absolutely do not recommend.MishuloJuly 24th, 2012 2 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A game with great theme. However, can get very long sometimes. Overall, still very fun, especially if everyone gets into the theme of the game.rfernandez0July 24th, 2012 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Beautiful game with rich theme, but is too long with too much fiddly bookkeeping and not enough fiero or challenge to make it worth it. The expansions add challenge, but it shouldn't take $100+.CunningAllusionmentJuly 24th, 2012 5 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Great game. It is a cooperative game. The group plays against an enemy that is controlled by cards. Lots of dice are rolled. There still is a lot of strategy as well. The rules take a while to learn.jackspeedApril 17th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Although I have only played this game solo, it is truly awesome. Lots of luck involved from dice throws to cards turned over. But enjoyable as a adventure.badger the braveSeptember 14th, 2011 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
