In the sleepy town of Arkham, Massachusetts, a small band of intrepid investigators seeks to uncover the nature of a sinister menace that threatens humanity. But beware! The arcane realm holds countless terrors, and the investigators must take care to maintain a tenuous grip upon their very sanity and survive.
For new players that haven’t yet experienced the cooperative investigations and gripping campaigns of Arkham Horror: The Card Game, there’s no better place to start than the Revised Core Set! With a single copy of the Revised Core Set, players have everything they need to start playing with one to four players—just by picking a pre-built investigator deck and leaping into the first scenario of the Night of the Zealot campaign included in this Core Set. Once they’ve completed those three scenarios, there are plenty of options for choosing their next campaign—the Revised Core Set is fully compatible with all previously released Arkham Horror: The Card Game products.
WHAT HAS CHANGED?
To be honest, nothing about the game itself has changed. This is still the same Arkham Horror: The Card Game that many have come to know and love over the past five years, and none of the cards included in the Revised Core Set are new to the game. The rules are the same, the campaign is the same, the experience is the same. Even the cards are mostly the same, with the only difference being the inclusion of a handful of higher-level cards from some of the game’s earlier expansions to give newer players more options when spending experience. But even then, these cards already exist as part of the game, which means if you already have all the existing Arkham Horror LCG products, then there will not be anything in the Revised Core Set that you need for yourself.
However, this is the perfect opportunity to introduce a friend or family member to the game. The Revised Core Set comes with everything a newcomer needs to get their Arkham Horror LCG collection started, including a full playset of cards and components to support up to four players for the initial campaign.
The contents of the box have received an organizational upgrade, meaning that it’s much easier to find specific cards than it was before. Each investigator is packaged right alongside all the cards in their suggested starting deck, and each scenario has all of its cards packaged separately from the others, which means all you will need to do to get started is shuffle the decks and you’re ready to go. On top of that, some additional quality-of-life improvements have been made, such as new numbered resource and clue/threat tokens and even a lead investigator token!
