Arkham Horror is a cooperative adventure and horror board game. The game is set in the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts, made famous by H.P. Lovecraft in his writings about the Cthulhu Mythos.
Players take the role of investigators exploring the city, encountering places, people, and creatures both normal and mundane.
Through these adventures, the investigators hope to gain the clues and resources needed to confront and ultimately thwart the Mythos threat.
Early in the game, investigators seek to avoid more powerful monsters while moving around the city to gather weapons, spells, clues, and other items they will need. Later, the investigators attempt to close a few gates and seal some of the most active gates.
Finally, once several gates have been sealed and the investigators have acquired valuable weapons, spells, clues, and allies, they make one last, desperate assault on the Mythos, attempting to close or seal the final gates.
