Mansions of Madness Second Edition is a co-operative game, suitable for 1-5 players that transports players into the mystical world of H.P. Lovecraft, taking on the role of investigators, tasked with investigating harrowing cases of murder and dark magic, that will see them dragged to the depths of hell, led through dark and desolate halls and streets and faced with unspeakably foul monsters and creatures that will make even the strongest investigators quake.
The much loved first edition from Fantasy Flight Games returns with a major additions to allow players to have a more enjoyable and streamlined experience throughout their investigations. The main addition to Mansions of Madness Second Edition is that of a companion app that will take over as the “dungeon master” – letting all players fully absorb this Lovecraftian atmosphere that the game conjures up!
The app will guide the players through the dark and dangerous streets of Arkham, the dimly buildings of Innsmouth and the cursed halls of grand mansions, while offering the investigators with little respite! It is up to you, as a team, to decide where to explore, what to investigate and ultimately decide how to successfully complete each investigation.
Be warned however, as if you stray too far in the wrong direction, you may find yourself at the mercy of one of Lovecraft’s most evil creatures, an interaction that may just cost you your life! With each turn, you risk obtaining damage and horror, all of which can hamper your efforts and lead to your demise! Keep vigilant, as if you gain too much of either effect, you may find yourself wounded, with little left to help you, or you may just go insane, and your world will be flipped upside down, along with your investigation!
Items, spells and actions can all assist you in your journey, from bandages and weapons, to ancient spells designed to send evil forces back to their unsavoury worlds! The game also includes highly-detailed miniatures to allow players to transport themselves into said worlds, while the artwork adds theme and feeling to this fantastic game.
Mansions of Madness draws players in with its immersive gameplay and beautifully themed investigations, so much so that this game will have you begging for more and is sure to have every hair on your back raised throughout! Enjoy at your own risk!
