Might be a good idea to go and purchase the copyrighted material you're trying to copy.

Well AFAIK boardgame mechanics and concept doesn't fall under any copyrights. Only graphic design and Lovecraft-references may be reserved.

So you can rewrite everything as it is changing names and putting your own pictures and nobody would say a word.

So you can buy everything and rewrite it yourself.


please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm curious myself.

Pretty sure you're right. But it sounds to me like this guy wants his own digital copy of MoM so he doesn't have to pay for it. Why else would he be asking for scanned components rather than rules?

That's a tricky question. My understanding is you cannot create a copy with different art, but you can create a similar game with different IP. How similar is the question.

I'd go by: would you mind if someone did it to you in reverse?

Pretty sure the Lovecraft mythos in its entirety is Creative Commons as per HPL's expressed will (Even though he probably called it differently). But you are obviously totally correct on graphic design.

Not to mention the hours of scanning he's not paying anyone for.

I have the game sillys, I just dont have a scanner. I can provide the serial number if you want
http://amzn.com/w/21C1AS9ELFZFG?tag=article-boardgamegeek-20 I got the main game but none of the expansions yet if you were curious.. >.>

Theres also already a bunch of boardgames in the Steam workshop for Tabletop Simulator, go check it out.
I often host games of Eldritch Horror [which I dont have] and Betrayal at House on the Hill [which I do have] mostly.

It doesn't matter if there are already a bunch of games in the steam workshop; in the end it would only hurt FFG. You yourself have just admitted you've hosted games you don't own, you've enjoyed Eldritch Horror without FFG receiving anything in return, which will eventually lead to them stop making expansions. Considering how already infrequent we get expansions & how much my group & I love this game there is a wide variety of vulgar terms I'd like to describe you with. Be an adult & don't help people cheat other people out of their hard earned money.

Dunno why you are riding on a high horse thats already dead but nothing replaces the enjoyment of playing with the real thing, just some of us dont have others to play with in real life or simply cannot.
Think before you judge.

What you're asking isn't legal, regardless of the fact you own the game.

Your inability to have friends that you can play with in real life is not FFG's fault, so they shouldn't suffer. If you need to play over long distance, skype it (or something similar) like everybody else. Creating a digital copy will undermine FFG's sales; even if you already own it there will be plenty of people who do not that will eventually abuse the digital copy.

I'm sorry you don't have friends.
