Well Christmas day is done and you’d be forgiven for thinking that the phrase Mountains of Madness refers to the large piles of torn, and discarded, wrapping paper found in living rooms across the globe… However, it does not! Moountains of Madness is the name of the second expansion for the extremely popular Fantasy Flight Games title – Eldritch Horror.
Announced at GenCon 2014, Mountains of Madness is the first big-box expansion for an already excellent game. There’s plenty to be found in the box with a new Antarctica board, mountains of card (sorry couldn’t resist), new ancient ones and a variety of new characters joining the existing investigators.
As a celebration of the festive season I decided to change the 26th of Dcember, from Boxing Day to “Unboxing” Day and I’ve done a quick seven minute video of everything you get in the Mountains of Madness box! I cant wait to get this incorporated into my base game, and I’ll be reviewing the whole expansion in the near fuure – but until then – check out the video!
For those of you who are already die-hard fans of Eldritch Horror – consider Mountains of Madness a must have item this year and if you have some Christmas money to spend, I recommend using it on this great new title!
