I can hardly believe nobody's mentioned Elder Sign yet. Sincerely? I always thought it was the coolest-looking dice-and-cards game. Unfortunately nobody I knew ever had it so I never had the chance to give it a try. I've heard nothing but good things about it. And you've played it quite a bit so it's evidently well worth playing.

I remember a BGG user making these really cool-looking hand made dice trays with the logos and all; very snazzy stuff. I know my spouse would love to give it a roll (gee, did I actually say that? how corny) since he's a huge fan of dice-rolling games. He's been super great about getting into boardgaming with me. I think we could give your copy of Elder Sign a home where it will actually get played and enjoyed.

Lastly, it's pretty awesome of you to part with some of your obviously-well-loved collection. I hope your generosity comes back to you a hundredfold.

I've been a lifelong tabletop fan, but growing up in a very rural area, I never had any friends or family who were interested in playing with me. As such, I did not get to play games that much, unless it was a one player game. Thankfully, I recently convinced my wife to finally start playing games with me over the course of the past few months. She's been hesitant for many years, but games like King of Tokyo and Munchkin Quest showed her that board games could be interesting and enjoyable. We visit a local gaming cafe once a week to cut loose and try out something new. It's become something we both greatly look forward to. We've tried a few Cthulhu Mythos games and she likes them a great deal, much to my delight. As such, I would be humbled to share your copy of Elder Sign with her. You'd be helping to bring a new player further into the world of tabletop gaming and I would be in your debt. Thank you for this opportunity.

Wow, thank you for the generosity!

You have a lot of great games on your list, but I chose Elder Sign because I think it would be a great game to play with my son (9), and maybe my daughter(11) and wife(?). We definitely like cooperative games and my son has played elder sign with me on my ipad, but I think having the analog version of it would be so fun to play with him/them.

He and I love dice games and I think this game has a nice little twist and the theme is great, too.

Thank you for your consideration!

I'm pretty new to boardgames. If you check my collection on BGG, you'll see that I've only just started making my way into this madness in the last couple months. I am trying to be very careful as to which games I buy, making sure that it is something that my friends or family would be willing and excited to play. So I have to balance my preferences with theirs. I fall in love with heavily thematic games and just had to have Zombicide, but it only got played one night, years ago.

Elder Sign is thematic and cooperative, making it perfect for me, aaaaaaand one of my closest friends is a huge Lovecraft fan, who got me into his books a few years back, and we've read and discussed plenty of them together since then.

Elder Sign sits at the top of my must-buy list (along with Pandemic), so I'll be picking up a copy soon enough if I don't get selected. But if I am chosen, that will free me up to get an expansion, or get Pandemic sooner. I'm excited to build my collection and this would be the perfect next step.

This is the inspiration for this list. My kids discovered I have this on my phone, and started playing.

Now they ask me if they can play "Elderly Sign."

Clearly a game involving street signs near retirement homes!

I started a little solo campaign here, I eventually want to fight against all the GOOs in the game (with all expansions). I've got some ways to go, with just five games in the campaign so far and 19 non-promo GOOs total (and because I played against Azathoth twice, and want to play both Summer and Winter for Omens of Ice the first time I try it, that'll be at least 16 more games). Loving the game, and I just started playing with Streets of Arkham again, which makes the game a bunch more strategic.

Originally, I didn't plan to include this game in the challenge because I've already played this relatively often on my own. But because Erasmus bought 2 of the expansions for his birthday and it actually was the first game I played after about a week of ignoring board games and the BGG in general it just felt right and good to include this. In the long run I'd like to make sure I have played this with every investigator, against each Ancient One and with each variant possible.

d10-1 25.06.2016 [Wow, I totally screwed up the date here!]
Rita Young, the Athlete, defeated Yig.
Because of my bad luck with dice I don't often win Elder Sign. Rita had to battle her share of smaller monsters during her adventure, the strongest being a Hound of Tindalos. Rita also met an ally, Eric Colt, who couldn't actually help at all, because the ability he gives the investigator is half of Rita's special ability Resilience. What a bummer! During Rita's journey to Another Dimension she gained the 12th Elder Sign and overcame Yig.

d10-2 25.06.2016
Harvey Walters, the Professor, defeated Azathoth.
This game didn't go as smoothly as the one before. Jim Culver and Charlie Kane were devoured by the Ancient Ones. In the latter half of the game the Arkham Museum became more and more overrun by horrible monsters. For Harvey Walters it was an especially hard task to stand against the rank and file of the Ancient Ones. After visiting the City of the Great Race and right before Azathoth would have woken up Harvey was able to defeat a Warlock and a High Priest in the Public Lavatory and gained the last 2 Elder Signs he needed to keep Azathoth sleeping. I had already nearly given up on this game and was pleasantly surprised that Harvey could survive the struggle against Azathoth.

d10-3 25.06.2016
Sister Mary, the Nun, was devoured by Nyarlathotep.
Well, this game didn't go anywhere close to smoothly. In the beginning Kate Winthrop celebrated some minor successes and was able to collect the first few Elder Signs relatively fast. Then followed an endless orgy of bad die luck that resulted in the loss of all clue tokens and items Kate had collected. She was devoured not long thereafter. Sister Mary followed in her footsteps when it comes to bad luck with dice rolling. A lot of the places in play did not only cost Sister Mary sanity and stamina when losing but also brought an endless flood of doom tokens into play. When Nyarlathotep awoke, Sister Mary had no clue tokens at all and was immediately devoured.

d10-4 26.06.2016
Michael McGlen, the Gangster, was devoured by Cthulhu.
What a catastrophe! The investigators were completely overrun by the events of the waking of Cthulhu. Diana Stanley was defeated by the museum Curator and shortly therefater Lily Chen lost her life when she had to face 2 cultists in the Public Lavatory. Both Rex Murphy and Michael McGlen couldn't bring down a Fire Vampire that entered the museum along with an extraordinary tempest phenomenon in one of the museum's bureaus. The cultists and witches completed their awakening rituals in the following night and summoned Cthulhu to life.
I know I have a lot of bad luck when it comes to die rolling but I don't think I've ever seen a doom track fill up as fast as in this game. And I've complained about drawing an unfit ally during the first game that I easily won...

I procured a 1st Version copy of this wonderful game, and proceeded to play it to death. Then I learned the 2nd Version rules have important differences from 1st.

I downloaded the new rulebook months ago, but only now have I worked that file into an A4 document and had it printed at Officeworks. Trimmed top, bottom, and outside edge of the pages, and stapled the whole to make a very serviceable book.

I was about to play Legendary Encounters: Aliens, but wasn't in the mood for the long setup so late at night so I broke this out as my last game for the evening. I choose a random elder god, Azathoth, against four randomly chosen investigators.

It started well, with me easily solving a number of adventures. But after a few rounds, I lost track of my investigators sanity. Two of them went down in rapid succession.

I did not give up however, and my last two guys were able to push on and eventually defeat the Elder god.

There is something about this game that really draws me in. I had trouble with Eldritch Horror, and eventually traded it away, but I don't see this one ever leaving my collection. The flavor text on the cards and monster tokens really brings out the theme. I'm picturing in my mind, my medic character casting a spell to open a portal, while his friend is huddled in the corner babbling with insanity.

thumbsup Surprisingly immersive for such a light game.
thumbsup Easy to set up and put away.
thumbsup Not to taxing on my brain when its late at night.

One of the games I bought at UKGE, with Gates of Arkham expansion, although I just played the base game to go through the rules.



I randomly got Sgub-Niggurath as the old one.
I played with 3 investigators.
- Harvey Walters
- Bob Jenkins
- Amanda Sharpe

I did struggle to get elder signs at the beginning, but managed to get 8/12 before the old one awoke. I had plenty of trophies in two of my investigators so we could go against it in a fight for a while, and managed to defeat it (although I only had one more turn left before defeat laugh)

The base game is ok, is more thematic than I expected as it creates a little story inside the museum and some of the adventures are quite cool. Once you get some objects and clues you start getting more control over the dice rolls, but if you keep getting bad ones is quite difficult to do anything. The fight against the old one I didn't like it that much, I just kept rolling and rolling for about 10min (I did 6 times the full clock...) and felt a bit unthematic compared to the rest of the game.

I think I'll just jump ahead and integrate the expansion next game as the general opinion around here is that it makes the game much better.

thumbsup Light game in Lovecraft world
thumbsup Easy to learn and play
thumbsup More thematic than expected for a dice game
thumbsdown The fight against the old one felt a bit simplistic and unthematic

Edit: forgot about the aggregator shake
<summary>Fun and thematic dice game. A light game in the Lovecraft universe. The fight against the old gone was a bit of a let down though.</summary>

So I've been rather absent on the lists of late

Keep trying to keep on top of reading them but for various reasons, being busy, being tired and gaming funk to name the main culprits I've barely done any solo gaming for a few months now.

Anyway some new found enthusiasm and a trip to the UK Games Expo has me sat at the table again and enjoying myself.

Thought I'd better ease myself back into things and since I finally picked up the expansions for this I thought I'd start with the base game again and start working my way through the expansions. Always forget how much I enjoy this one, really is a great little game and good for those times when you want something with low rules overhead.
