Gothic Horrors is a deluxe expansion for Maximum Apocalypse.
The supernatural is real. Unspeakable horrors await those who venture out at night. Vampires drain the life of their victims while cultists summon strange creatures. We’re hoping that we can scrounge together enough supplies to survive without our minds snapping, but it is a heavy burden to bear.
Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors adds two new apocalyptic scenarios, Cthulhu and Vampires. Face off against life draining vampires, ghouls and werewolves in a classic monster set or try and stop a bunch of cultists from summoning Cthulu or other unspeakable Lovecraftian horrors. Each apocalypse brings with it new gameplay mechanics such as the Insanity deck of phobias or the new night/day event deck. This expansion also adds two new survivor characters, the Priest and Ronin. Each character comes with their own unique survivor deck of abilities and equipment cards. The Priest is a persistent believer in humanity who offers protection from unspeakable evils. The Ronin is a new close range combatant with dual purpose cards that change based on her combat stance.
