Fantasy Flight Games has been showing off a new deluxe expansion which evolved from an April Fool's Joke. Arkham Horror is getting a doggy-based facelift with the release of Barkham Horror: The Meddling Of Meowlathotep which will be a 100% totally real standalone addition to the game.

Barkham Horror - FFG

This take on the game sets the whims of Cthulhu to one side and instead introduces a new threat, the ever-present and ominous cats of Meowlathotep and the Prowling Chaos. Your dogged investigators (all of which have been designed to fit the theme of the game) are noticing things going amiss throughout town and only you can solve the case!

All of the scenario-specific missions have been themed to fit the struggle between cats and dogs and you'll notice that a lot of the options present in the game really help build that setting up. This should still be a challenge, as most Arkham Horror scenarios are, but one with a bit more whimsy in the mix.

Your investigators shouldn't really cross over into the realm of the real Arkham universe but there's no reason you couldn't do some tinkering if you so desired. However, they have made this completely standalone so it should be grand to just get stuck in and play.

By getting stuck in and snapping this up you'll also be helping to support Pets For Vets which is a nice touch. I can't see myself picking this up myself but for avid Arkham Horror fans and those who absolutely love their pooches, I could imagine this going down well.

Will you be snapping this up?
