|Arkham Nights 2011 | Published 30 September 2011||Rating||17 votes|
Fantasy Flight Games invites you to join us October 14th-16th in Roseville, MN for a weekend of gaming and Lovecraftian terror!
Bring your favorite horror stories to life through our games set in H.P. Lovecraft’s macabre world of weird fiction. Now you can pull back the veil on the weekend’s festivities with a schedule of the events (pdf, 288KB), available on the Arkham Nights 2011 support page. Review the schedule, then pay for your registration today to attend all the games, Q&A sessions, and appearances by the design teams behind some of your favorite games, as well as special guest Richard Launius!
With multiple tables of Arkham Horror, Elder Sign, and Mansions of Madness running all weekend long, along with both casual and tournament play for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, Arkham Nights 2011 offers the year’s most thrilling Lovecraftian horrors.
Still, we have more than games on the agenda. Here’s a glimpse at some of the other events:
Arkham Nights Costume Contest
Come as your favorite investigator–or eldritch creature–and judges Kevin Wilson and Richard Launius will decide who is Arkham’s greatest hero, or threat. Last year’s Costume Contest was a remarkable hit, and we are compelled (past reason) to look again upon the face of madness. Prizes are awarded for the best costume, and for the Fan Favorite.
Weekend Arkham Horror League
The Arkham Horror league returns for a quick, weekend-long jaunt through the streets of Arkham. Form a team and play against three league scenarios. The team with the best score will have their names inscribed on a living trophy at the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center.
Fiasco in Arkham
Cultists, gangsters, and investigators cross paths in a unique storytelling experience using Bully Pulpit’s Fiasco RPG. You don’t need to be familiar with Fiasco to participate in this event, which is open to all interested players, but seats are limited!
Review the schedule, then pre-register for Arkham Nights 2011 to earn your pre-order incentives, including a shot at the extraordinary opportunity to help design a future Mansions of Madness Print on Demand expansion (see our Terms and Conditions). But don’t delay, pre-registration closes on October 4th.
If you’ve already registered, then you can review the schedule to see the madness that awaits. The gates are nearly open!
The Fantasy Flight Games Event Center is a spacious gaming facility offering a variety of exciting hobby gaming events in one comfortable and welcoming location. Located at 1975 Oakcrest Avenue in Roseville, MN, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center is open for gaming six days a week.
They really should give an option to allow you to pay extra to have the items shipped to you or just have them available in a couple of months in a PoD format. I mean, its great to have an event like this, but with worldwide fans and the crap worldwide economic situation it cuts down on the travel. I really hope FFG listens and has the Hastur and the ones from last year available as PoD eventually.
Fiasco in Arkham
Just read the rule for the Fiasco RPG, sounds great. Who wouldn't want a Cohen Brother's movie with a Lovecraft setting. Here is a description from the rulebook:
Fiasco is inspired by cinematic tales of small time capers gone disastrously wrong – particularly films like Blood Simple, Fargo, The Way of the Gun, Burn After Reading, and A Simple Plan. You’ll play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control. There will be big dreams and flawed execution. It won’t go well for them, to put it mildly, and in the end it will probably collapse into a glorious heap of jealousy, murder, and recrimination. Lives and reputations will be lost, painful wisdom will be gained, and if you are really lucky, your guy just might end up back where he started.
Any chance that similar events could be scheduled also in Europe? They would be nice to attend...
No. Too far to travel.
I'll be there...will you?
