The first time we played Eldritch Horror with friends, we came across the card with this text and we were all like: “What the?”. And that’s what I personally love about Eldritch Horror. The game is loaded with unexpected story elements and your investigators go through the weirdest and most terrible of things. That’s if they manage to stay alive, of course. We probably lost the game more often than we defeated the Ancient One.
It’s not a game we play too often, it’s one of games we want to plan a day around. To take our time and read aloud all the cards and use (silly) voices and use heavy accents to set an atmosphere. You just want to end up with that character that has taken on a dark pact, has hallucinations and has been lost in space and time and in a ‘friggin forest on the moon. It’s just good story. Until you flip over that Dark Pact card of course, because that means something terrible will probably happen to you.
Hah, now I feel like playing the game again!
