Horror on the Orient Express: The Board Game

Be lured into the luxurious Orient Express in the 1920s, taking you on a dangerous train ride into the realm of the Dreamlands. Everything is against you, from monsters attacking the train to murderous cults hiding among the passengers. Worst of all, an eldritch, blood-thirsty vampire hunting down everything that moves. Can you solve the dark secrets of the Orient Express before time runs out? The exciting new take on the classic Call of Cthulhu campaign gives board game and horror TTRPG fans alike a new way to experience the story with their friends and family. This cooperative game gives players a chance to explore the 1920s aboard the famous Orient Express and investigate the murderous cult (and monsters) trying to stop the train from reaching its destination – and sacrifice everyone onboard along the way.

Horror on the Orient Express: The Board Game offers a combination of adventure, deduction, survival, and pushing your luck as you identify evil cultists, fight off monsters, protect your passengers from a cruel vampire, and survive the nightmarish trip through the legendary Dreamlands. Multiple strategies, a lot of controllable mechanisms, high replayability, and astonishing table presence – with a condensed gameplay design so your gaming group doesn't need to dedicate a whole day to the game.
