* ''Eldritch Horror'': Involves investigating sinister happening on a globe-trotting scale, with definite IndianaJones-vibe to it all. Definitely the closest to the original game, but here the focus lies in solving "Mysteries" (though closing gates is still important). While still large and epic, it is more steamlined and fast paced compared to Arkham Horror, with average playtime at 2-4 hours (compared to 4+ hours). Already receiving it's first expansion, ''Forsaken Lore'', adding Yig and roughly 200 new cards to the game.

For Massive Damage is not a trope.
** Professor Walters. He has decent Speed, Stealth and Luck scores, but he truly shines in that he has one of the highest Lore skills in the game, ties for the highest innate Sanity points, ''and'' his special ability reduces all Sanity losses by 1, saving his Sanity points to allow him to use plenty of [[TomeOfEldritchLore books]] and dual-wield combat spells [[ForMassiveDamage for extra fun]]. This is, however, countered by the fact that he has some of the lowest Will, Fight and [[HitPoints physical health]] stats in the game.

For Massive Damage is an index, not a trope.
* ForMassiveDamage: What results when, for instance, a "blessed" character maxes out their Fight stat while using their Lore to activate two one-handed Shrivelling (+6) combat spells in a single battle (or some other similar combination). [[AGodAmI This can readily take down Ancient Ones.]]

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: You can literally do it. [[NintendoHard You're gonna have a hell of a time doing it, though.]]

* EgyptianMythology: Bast, the cat goddess, serves as one of the guardians. For a price you can play KindHeartedCatLover and feed strays to receive her blessing. Her blessing regenerates stamina or sanity each turn and protects you from being devoured.

* ''TabletopGame/MansionsOfMadness'': Players investigate an OldDarkHouse while one player designated the [[GameMaster Keeper]] controls the opposition. Sort of a lite-version of roleplaying ''TabletopGame/TheCallOfCthulhu''. Has so far received two large expansions. ''Forbidden Alchemy'' introduces a new puzzle type as well as three new scenarios with a MadScience angle. ''Call of the Wild'' features fives new scenarios with an outdoors locale as well as non-linear gameplay. There are also six single scenario expansions: ''Season of the Witch'', ''The Silver Tablet'', ''Til Death Do Us Apart'', ''House of Fears'', ''The Yellow Sign'', and ''The Laboratory'' (the last one requires ''Forbidden Alchemy'').
