Hello, it's me again!!

I need some advice about this question!! Would you rather buy Eldritch Horror + a few expansions or Mansion of madness?

Thank you very much!

Right now you would get more plays out of Eldritch Horror, but both are fun games. Mansions of Madness currently only has 6 stories, and only 4 of them are playable with only the base game. They are supposed to release new stories later, and it looks like they will be both DLC for the app and physical expansions.

You can use the monster figures from Mansions of Madness in Eldritch/Arkham Horror so if you see it on sale later on it is still worth getting.

That is really a tough question. They are two totally different experiences.

I think part of it might depend on how many people you want to play the game. Eldritch Horror is for 1 - 8 players, and Mansion of Madness is 2 - 5. So if you're looking for something that can accommodate more people, you might think about Eldritch Horror.

Mansions of Madness is 1-5 players, so you can play on your own if you wish.

Eldritch Horror is pretty bad at higher player counts anyway.

They're different types of games, for sure.

What sort of Mythos do you like? Do you want the chance to shotgun Cthulhu in the face? Get Eldritch Horror.

Do you understand that your existence is meaningless and you're an unimportant speck in the cosmos? Get Mansions of Madness.

You have to work together, but, thematically, they're still different. With EH, players are all over the globe, doing their own part of the greater plan, sorta like Pandemic. With MM, players are working together in a small town, much like a roleplaying game.

FYI I love EH with the higher player counts.
As for EH expansions, Foresaken Lore seems out of print.
Did you bypass that one?

Hey,

On FFG it's showing Forsaken Lore being delivered to stores, also you can pre order it on Geekstop Games (showing "on the way" on boardgameprices). I prefere to wait some time instead of paying the insane price some people are asking for that expansion XD

Hope that helps you if you want to order it / know someone who wants it!
