Cthulhu Mythos has always fascinated me. I never was a Lovecraft expert. I just happened to read a few of his [and his friends'] stories and liked them. I love gore/splatter movis, so I also liked 'Re-animator', 'From Beyond' and so on. All these are movies related to his stories. I also read the RPG Call of Cthulhu, but never found a group to play it. I even bought the pc game 'Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth'.

So, when I spotted Arkham Horror, I just couldn't resist. This was the game that made me interested in board games in general. So, here is a list inspired by Arkham Horror.
