    Eldritch Horror: Strange Remnants Expansion Review

    Eldritch Horror: Strange Remnants Expansion Review

    The adventure of travelling the world awaits you! You and your fellow investigators will be faced with the world-wide expedition to learn the ancient secrets of the cursed and forgotten ruins. Your journey will take you across the world, over distant seas to find Moai Statues of Easter Islands, and through remote jungles to find the Great Wall of China. Leading you ever closer to the darkest corners of the world, it is only these strange remnants that will reveal the mysteries of the past and help you and your fellow investigators to solve the looming threat that the future has in hold.

    Alongside these thrilling new adventures, the Strange Remnants expansion for Eldritch Horror also introduces four new well-rounded and unique investigators to join the expedition! From a shoot’em up bounty hunter to a god driven chef, the Strange Remnants expansion (designed by Nikki Valens) holds some of the best investigators that can fit the play style of any desire.

    Strange Remnants Expansion

    The highlight of the Strange Remnants expansion is the new deck of quest lines, the Mystic Runes, which follow a similar style to the expedition encounters of the base game, in the sense that these missions move around the map depending on which location the quest requires you to explore. Similarly to the artefacts found within the expedition encounters, the mystic rune quests rewards explorers with powerful assets and companions.

    However, what sets apart the mystic runes quests the most from any other expansion are the unique story lines and objectives to uncover the curious wonders of the world in a hope to keep the ancient ones away and root out their earthly allies.

    For example, suddenly, your ship is no longer sailing upon the ocean you once knew, and you find yourself within a sea of stars. Can you keep your composure and navigate your position within the celestial landscape? Or, will you lose your mind in the alien ocean and succumb to the terrors that lie in the depths of this strange cosmos? The rewards can be great, but the penalty for error is much greater.

    Final Thoughts on the Strange Remnants Expansion

    Whilst the Strange Remnants expansion is no easy quest, even for an adept board game player, it still holds the familiar mechanics and characteristics of Eldritch Horror that are ceaselessly enjoyable. If a challenging experience is what you are looking for, and you are willing to endure a few fatal hits, then Strange Remnants is certainly the expansion to choose.

    Alongside the unique and exciting new stories to discover, Strange Remnants is a fantastic edition to anyone who is looking to expand their Eldritch Horror base game.

    I was very impressed with your delivery service. Also the parcel arrived in good condition. I enjoyed playing Shaperise with my grandchildren, so bought one as a birthday gift for another grandchild. Thank you

    Received my order of Hogwarts Battle, Monster Expansion and Defence Against the Dark Arts very fast, I think the next working day, during Covid19 lockdown. And their prices are extremely competitive!
