Announcing the first update for the Arkham Horror Toolkit
Arkham Horror Toolkit | Published 03 February 2011

The streets of Arkham teem with the foul sorcery of the Ancient Ones. No one is safe while these ageless powers stir in their slumber, and it is up to you to rid the world of their presence. Do you want to face such opposition empty-handed?

The Arkham Horror Toolkit is the latest addition to the Fantasy Flight Games media catalog, now available on the iTunes App Store. This useful app gives gamers a way to utilize the exciting capabilities of their iPhone and iPad when joining their friends to combat the Ancient Ones in Arkham Horror, the classic cooperative board game of Lovecraftian horror.

This highly functional application reduces setup time, saves table space, and provides easy-to-navigate menus to help keep your games of Arkham Horror moving along smoothly. The latest Arkham Horror Toolkit update ensures that users have even more control and more options when exploring the streets of Arkham.

Expand Your Limits

One of the biggest additions to the app is the ability to control how expansion content is added to your game. All of the Arkham Horror expansions to date are available as in-app purchases, giving users access to expansion Location cards and Investigators. While expansion Investigators are always available, the new Version 1.1 update now lets you choose whether or not to add the expansion Location cards to your game, giving you greater customization of your Arkham Horror experience.

A Fist Full of Elder Signs

The dice roller has also been improved with the addition of available presets. Normally users simply press the die icon multiple times to add more dice to the virtual tabletop. Now you can hold your finger on the die icon to bring up the dice preset menu (pictured to the right). Using this menu, you can immediately add from three to ten dice to the table with the touch of a single button.

Follow the Clues with Ease

Finally, the Version 1.1 update also makes the Arkham Horror Toolkit even easier to use, with added features for improved navigation and a streamlined options interface. This makes browsing the available Investigators and navigating the streets of Arkham a breeze. Now is the time to equip yourselves and save Arkham from its impending doom. With expanded help menus, added versatility, and regular updates to meet the demands of users, the Arkham Horror Toolkit is constantly improving.

(And you thought picking your Investigator and double-tapping for Location cards was already easy...)

For more information, be sure to check out the support page, where a compiled FAQ will supplement the in-app help menus.

So what are you waiting for? Cthulhu’s awakening? Head to the App Store and discover the Arkham Horror Toolkit today!

The Arkham Horror Toolkit is a full suite of tools designed to augment and enhance your Arkham Horror experience. Whether you use the Dice Roller, Investigator tool, Location Deck, Map Display, or all of the above, the Arkham Horror Toolkit will take care of the bookkeeping for you. This wide range of time-saving functions will let you concentrate on what’s most important: ridding Arkham of the dark forces that seek to overtake it.

 This is the way to go with many boardgames today, I believe.

Wow, fantastic work FFG.  I am extremely happy I made the purchase now I can have investigators in and choose which expansion content.

Well worth the purchase.
