Pretty standard Cthulhu/Lovecraft Mythos game - great minis

OK so I bought this game mainly to paint up the minis. and they are great, and plentiful. Worth the price of the game alone, to be honest. The game box is PACKED. 4 stars if you are into minis and painting, probably -1 star if not. Also maybe -1 star if you're not into Cthulhu games and like to win lots...!

The game itself is enjoyable, but difficult. Expect to lose! Great fun solo or 2-player. I've not tried at higher counts. It can quickly turn into a bit of a monster-swarm affair, which becomes very negative and soul-destroying very fast.

The unique aspect of this game compared to other Lovecraft mythos games is that the more insanity you have, the more powerful you get. So there is an excellent push-your-luck aspect there, to get the insanity high enough to get powerful, but not go right to the top and be out of the game.

The room tiles are very nice, great art and offer a variety of maps that always feel different. It can get a bit crowded at times (with investigators, enemies, tokens etc all crowding into a small room), which takes away from the immersiveness a bit. The replayability is solid, with multiple scenarios and two bosses in the box to mix and match. Plus expansions if you want.

Fantastic box insert design, with everything stored away nicely and quick to set up. (Fantasy Flight Games, I'm looking at YOU!)
