The year is 1913. The steamship SS Atlantica is two days out from port on its voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. Its unsuspecting passengers fully anticipated a calm journey to Boston, Massachusetts, with nothing out of the ordinary to look forward to. However, strange nightmares plague the minds of the people aboard the ship every night; rumors circulate of dark shapes following closely behind the ship just beneath the waves; and tensions rise when a body is discovered in the ship's chapel, signs of a strange ritual littered around the corpse.

Lurking within the depths of the Atlantic Ocean are a swarm of vicious, unspeakable horrors: the Deep Ones, led by Mother Hydra and Father Dagon. For reasons unknown, they have set their sights on the Atlantica, and their minions, taking the form of human-Deep One hybrids, have infiltrated the steamship to help sink it from within. Each game of Unfathomable has one or more players assuming the role of one of these hybrids, and how well they can secretly sabotage the efforts of the other players might mean the difference between a successful voyage and a sunken ship.

If you're a human, you need to fend off Deep Ones, prevent the Atlantica from taking too much damage, and carefully manage the ship's four crucial resources if you want any hope of making it to Boston, all while trying to figure out which of your fellow players are friends and which are foes. Everyone shares the same resource pool, but humans will try to preserve them while traitors will strive to subtly deplete them. Being able to tell when someone is purposefully draining the group's resources is harder than you think, especially when you take crises into account!

At the end of each player's turn, that player must draw a mythos card. Each of these cards represents a crisis that the whole group must try to resolve together. Some of these crises, such as "Food Rationing", call for a choice that could potentially put the ship's passengers or resources at risk, while others, such as "Hull Leak", call for a skill test in which failure could have disastrous consequences.

During a skill test, each player contributes skill cards from their hand to a face-down pile shared by the group. Once everyone has contributed (or chosen not to), the cards are shuffled, then revealed. If enough of the correct skills were contributed, then the group passes the test! But if the wrong skills were contributed, they can actually hinder the results, leading to failure. Thus, skill tests are dangerous opportunities for traitors to sabotage the humans' efforts, so you have to stay on your toes at all times.

Unfathomably Good.

I have to admit that this product has pleasantly surprised me. Knowing how difficult it is to get a Lovecraftian atmosphere correct in any medium, it is true to say that the creators of Unfathomable have done a really good job here. With a mix of intrigue, panic and worries about which of your friends may or may not be human, Unfathomable truly does feel like a game where survival is nought but a tenebrous proposition on an otherwise un-feeling and icy sea.
Couple that with a truly delightful board, great artwork and storytelling, and surprisingly well-crafted models and other components, and I can happily say that this is a came I cannot wait to put an even larger group of people together to play it.

Longtime customer

Super helpful/knowledgeable staff. Great place to play events. It's both friendly to newer players and also has a good list of competitive players for those people looking to improve, which is a rarity for games stores.

If you're looking for fun games, or trying to find people that share your interests in anything tcg related, this is the place to go!

Very good

Very happy

More great Arkham

With new tokens and the blessed and cursed mechanics this box is maybe the best value Arkham expansion going. Great scenarios too.

Great addition to my setup

I have been using a wet-palette I made myself and I thought I'd treat myself to this. I have to say it's much more convenient in every way. I can also take this with me when travelling so that's another plus.

Thanks Athena for the advice before getting this item

its easy to book a table online.....thanks.
