Asmodee is hosting a real world premiere in December 2018. For the first time, the Arkham Nights will also take place in Germany. From Saturday, December 8th until the night of the following day, horror fans can try out various games from the HP Lovecraft universe in a Düsseldorf youth hostel: provided they buy a ticket. Tickets for the event are available now.


Horror late into the night

The American horror author HP Lovecraft has developed into a real cult figure over the past few decades. 

Unter Brettspielern sind vor allem die Titel aus der sogenannten „Arkham-Reihe“ populär. Die meist komplexen Horror-Brettspiele arbeiten mit thematisch intensiven Settings, die auf den Ideen von H.P. Lovecraft basieren. Obwohl Lovecraft bereits im Jahr 1937 gestorben ist, gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller für phantastische Horrorliteratur. Die Arkham Nights 2018 sind daher ein echter Fan-Service, der erstmals auch in Deutschland veranstaltet wird. In den USA sind die „Two Days of Horror and Madness“ längst so kultig wie Lovecraft selbst: Fantasy Flight Games veranstaltet die Arkham Nights dort bereits seit mehreren Jahren.   

As part of the event, fans can try out the following horror games in demo rounds on December 08th and 09th, 2018:

  • Arkham Horror: The Board Game
  • Arkham Horror: The Card Game
  • Eldritch horror
  • Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition
  • The older sign

The best for last: there are fantastic prizes to be won for all participants, including game accessories (dice, bags, tokens), promo cards or an Arkham Horror deck box. Tickets for the Arkham Horror Nights 2018 in Düsseldorf costs 13,73 euros and are available now online and available. A limited number of tickets are available, but can be canceled up to seven days before the start of the event for a refund of the ticket fee (note special fees from Eventbrite). The playful horror night takes place in the Youth hostel in Düsseldorf-Oberkassel.
