Mansions of Madness: Second Edition is a fully co-operative, app-driven board game of horror and mystery for one to five players that takes place in the same universe as Eldritch Horror and Elder Sign.
The monster figures in Mansions of Madness: Second Edition are set on the same bases as the Arkham Horror Premium Figures and those featured in the first edition of Mansions of Madness. These bases allow you to slide information tokens underneath them, so you have quick and easy access to the monsters' traits and abilities. Because of the consistency between editions, you can seamlessly incorporate your first edition and painted minis into your new game, expanding the possibilities of your game and further immersing you in the bone-chilling happenings that have befallen Arkham's residents.
In the Mansions of Madness: Second Edition companion app, you will have the option to incorporate some or all of your old components. Whether you have the first edition and its expansions or just one of the products, you can still incorporate it into your game. Each product you add to your collection will allow you to play as that game's investigators, introduce the possibility for those monsters to spawn, include a few new people to encounter, and widen the pool of maps the app could generate for your chosen scenario. If you decide to play without certain expansions or add more to your collection, you can always go back and change your collection within the app, thereby altering the possible combinations of monsters, maps, and investigators.
