Welcome to Mountains of Madness – An “Everything You Need To Know” Board Game Review.
My name is Tina and I love board games. I happily force my family to participate in family game night and on a regular basis I entice my husband with whispers of sweet nothings to play board games with me. This will be my standard introduction to board game reviews at Los Gringos Locos, so next time you can save a few seconds and just skip it.
Mountains of Madness is a game based on the novel by H.P. Lovecraft. Everyone works together as an expedition team to scale the mountain and escape the harsh environment of Antarctica. You must do this before you are overcome by the mountain or madness! The 66 madness cards are what make this game unique, in my opinion, and well worth learning how to play. There are three levels of madness, so of course, the closer you get to escaping the mountain, the harder escaping becomes!
