Now that you’ve been briefed on the upcoming case - the mystery, your team, your options, your adversary, the puzzles, the imminent violence - and previewed the horrors that await, the time has come to open the doors...
Mansions of Madness, the macabre board game of investigation and storytelling for 2-5 players, is now on sale! If you are brave enough to investigate the troubling occurrences plaguing Arkham, head to your local retailer to grab your copy today.
In Mansions of Madness, one to four players control daring investigators while one player takes on the role of the keeper, whose objective is to carry out a heinous plot. The investigators must search for clues throughout mansions, cemeteries, and schools in an effort to thwart the keeper’s goals. However, their task will not be easy. Puzzles, monsters, and sanity-draining events await around every corner, and only the most cunning of investigators will survive the night.
Featuring a unique, story-driven setup mechanic to allow the keeper to customize the five included scenarios, and with countless unpredictable ways for the tale to unfold, Mansions of Madness is an immersive board game that lets players experience its shocking stories again and again.
Mansions of Madness is a macabre game of horror, insanity, and mystery for two to five players. Based on the beloved fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, Mansions of Madness tells a story in which one player takes on the role of the keeper, a malevolent force working to complete a sinister plot, and all other players take on the roles of investigators, the unlikely heroes who gather to oppose him.
Awesome game. However, it does need a deck of Generic cards for Exploration clues and events that are not tied to any story so players can make up their own stories whithout having to make up cards to go along with them and worry about balance issues. Also an expansion with a giant Cthulhu mini would be awesome.
Video won't play (used to play a week or two ago)
[ADMIN: Are you certain? I just checked and the link is still valid, and loads the movie as expected. You can also try viewing the video on FFG's You Tube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ5mZStU5zI ]
I live in Belgium too. Where did you get your copy? I would love to buy MoM immediately, right now, I have the cash in my hand. But I don't know any shop where I can buy it at the moment.
(Btw, I live in Ghent)
I need a job stat, so I can buy this. Who needs a game designer? Actually I have plenty of interviews, it just takes forever to get through the process. =(
Hope my copy is in the store today.

If all goes well I should be spitting acid and barking at the moon by Sunday evening...more so than usual, anyway. ;)
