Mansions of Madness Second Edition
This fully cooperative adventure will take you and up to four fellow investigators through the dark and desolate halls and alleyways of Arkham. Much like the original Mansions of Madness, the second edition sends you through a series of thrilling and confounding scenarios in which you must explore unpredictable maps haunted by bloodthirsty monsters, in order to solve intricate puzzles and uncover ominous secrets. Focus your mind and grab a weapon…fast!
While the haunting spirit of the classic favorite remains the same, Mansions of Madness Second Edition’s innovative app takes a new and unique approach the sinister Arkham universe. In removing the need for a Keeper player, the app enables you to play a fully cooperative game, and shrouds each scenario’s randomized secrets in complete and utter darkness. Throughout every game, the app generates an entirely unique map, full of differing items to utilize, monsters to confront, and events to endure. Instead of the map being fully visible from the start of the game, however, the app obscures the majority of the board in shadows until you endeavor to explore further.
Something Has Happened
Spine-chilling creatures will pursue you through claustrophobic and daunting scenarios as you search for answers to Arkham’s many mysteries. Your quest for truth and respite may take you through a looming mansion or down the deserted streets of Innsmouth, but no two games will ever be the same. Should you choose, for instance, to investigate the puzzling happenings at the Vanderbilt mansion in Cycle of Eternity, you will find yourself entering the same foyer and seeking the same ultimate truth every time. But through each door beyond lies the unknown, as the map and the monsters hiding in its shadows change with every play.
Once you begin playing your chosen scenario, the companion app will serve to guide you every nerve-wracking step of the way. In removing the need for a Keeper player, the app allows you and your fellow investigators to play a fully cooperative game, seeking out each clue and fighting every monster as a team. Should you desire to confront whatever waits in the shadows by yourself, the app even supports single-player games.
