Mansions of Madness Sold Out

Fight for your life in Mansions of Madness Second Edition, the app-assisted horror game inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. From the makers of Eldritch Horror, this fully cooperative game takes you and up to four other players on a harrowing adventure through the dark and desolate halls and alleyways of Arkham. Much like the original Mansions of Madness game, the second edition offers a number of thrilling and confounding scenarios, each with a unique and unpredictable map, intricate puzzles, and bloodthirsty monsters.

 

The scenario being run is yet to be determined. Prizes and extra raffle tickets will be awarded to players.

Return to Dark Tower Sold Out

For an age, the tower lay in ruins. Unbeknownst to the people of the realm, a great evil stirred in its bowels. It started with strange sightings: a flock of crows flying in circles until they dropped from the sky, the lake frozen solid in the height of summer. In time, they could not deny that which they most feared.

 

The evil had not been vanquished. The darkness would soon fall again. The tower will rise.

A "sequel" to the 1981 grail game, Return to Dark Tower is a game for 1-4 players who take the role of heroes. Together, they gather resources, cleanse buildings, defeat monsters, and undertake quests to build up their strength and discern what foe ultimately awaits them. When the heroes face the tower, the game shifts into its dramatic second act, where the players have one chance to defeat the enemy once and for all.

Prizes and extra raffle tickets will be awarded to players.

It is 1895... Paris... you are American art students living a life of decadence in The City of Lights! The world seems to be getting stranger. There are rumors of a fascinating new play called "The King in Yellow." You haven't seen it yet, but yet you feel like... somehow... you had a hand in its creation.

ALIEN - Hope's Last Day Sold Out

You and your team were dispatched to Air Processor #6 three days ago. While on your way back to the colony, Hadley's Hope, your vehicle broke down and cannot be repaired in the field. For reasons unknown, you've been unable to raise anyone on the com-system so a second vehicle could be sent out to pick you up. After waiting several hours, you have finally decided to walk the four kilometers to the colony. Hopefully you'll get some answers on why no one was able to answer your distress call.
