Board Game Review: Elder Sign
|Where the action Occurs|
|Tokens & Clock|
Now for the Mythos Card.... The mythos card in Elder Sign are very straightforward. A monster appear, a doom token is added, the clock moves faster or slower or something like that. That clock on that picture turns with each investigator. With four players, if everyone plays the clock chimes for midnight and a new mythos card is drawn.
So, what do I think??
Well, if you want a fast game that takes 30 minutes of your time, then go for it. If you want to roll some dice without any story or fluff get in your away, then go for it. As I said, this is a good game for playing with your 8 year old son or daughter. Yeah son, roll those dice if they match Yeee.. if not welll something bad happens. It's fast and quick to learn with only a couple of rules. But if you are used to Arkham or Eldritch you will find it boring. Truly boring. It's just roll some dice. This game is 8/10 of Luck based. The rest 2/10 is choosing the investigator to have some benefit and the choosing of the encounter or gate card.
|In that back is the expansion Gates of Arkham|
I have bought this game and the expansion in amazon and played 2 or 3 times. Never got around to play the expansion but I will and make a review... But as I said. This game will stay put in my house hoping my baby boy grows so we can play a easy game.
If you enjoy Arkham or Eldritch stay away from it, unless you are a Cthulhu Mythos freak like myself....
