Now, this looks like a long-awaited game, an excursion into Lovecraftian horror that doesn't require all day to play and can entice non-gamers. I'm definitely in on this one.
What's even more interesting is that this is another game from FFG with solo capabilities. The recent LotR LCG card game, the newly announced Gears of War, the new Rune Age, and now Elder Sign all are designed with single-player options. For those of us who have difficulty finding opponents, this is a very welcome trend. Thanks, FFG!
