Comments / Trivia
Arkham Terror appears to have been published as a paperback book (2004), a hardcover book (2005), in a Ziplock format (whatever that means) (2007) and in a boxed format (2012). It's not clear if these are just differences in binding, or if there were other changes as well. This page is an amalgamation of information about the game from some or all of the formats.
Hamster Press has also published Arkham Terror: Experimental Therapy, the board game version of this role-playing game with nearly identical mechanics.
Not to be confused with Arkham Horror, an unrelated game.
