Elder sign is a cooperative

Elder sign is a cooperative dice rolling game with a supernatural theme similar to other dice rolling games such as Star Trek 5 Year Mission (also great) and Gameswright's simple but fun Roll-for-it, which is a great introduction to these types of games. Elder Sign can be hard to find so if you find a copy in stock, would recommend picking up a copy.

Excellent game. Great replay ability

Excellent game. Great replay ability with different characters and Elder beasts to encounter. Have even played it with friend that aren't huge on board games and they loved it too.

Lots of fun

This is a great game to play with a friend or alone. The setup provides for plenty of variety and the feel from one game to the next can haver between brutally punishing and a walk in the park.<br /> This is a game I'll be returning to again and again.

Fortune in the dice

Elder Signs was my first mature tabletop game and once I got the rules down it has become a regular game in both solo and with friends

Elder Sign is a game

Elder Sign is a game of Lovecraftian Cyclopean terror in card format and tremendous fun. I've played it around 10 times with my brother and haven't managed to defeat the Elder One yet, so it's bloody hard. Perhaps with more players or one player taking on multiple characters then perhaps your chances will improve. Either way, I like playing it for the story and atmosphere of which there is plenty. Win or loose it's still a brilliant and tense game and a fraction of the price of it's also fantastic older brothers Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror and Mansions of Madness. A solid entry level horror game.
