TOP 1000 REVIEWERon December 14, 2008
I have only just started playing more complex board games but this moves the benchmark to a new level for me. You play one of a team of investigators trying to close a series of gates through which will appear all types of hideous monsters. If you get overrun you may be devoured or worse still the Ancient One may appear and you may have a chance to fight it or suffer a fate even worse....

Depending on which investigator you are you will have some special powers, weapons and some money. However you only have a finite amount of stamina and sanity and these can be lost quite easily when fighting a nightmare like the Leng Spiders. In which case off to the Asylum or Hospital you will go....

There are a lot of game pieces and cards and dice with this game. The only fault with the game is that the manufacturers do not supply enough storage containers to use during game play for the various different types that need to be laid out.

I've played the game twice now and it has taken 4 to 5 hours on average. This will undoubtably speed up as you get used to the games rules (there are lots). The chances of winning seem quite small but that is part of the fun. This is very entertaining, not to mention claustrophobic and there is a sense of impending doom!
