Description:

The Order is a Cooperative Lovecraftian Deckbuilder. Most deckbuilders are competitive, where the general goal is to optimize a Player's deck to defeat all threats or reach victory the fastest. The Order is cooperative, though, so it offers opportunities for Players to specialize their decks in different ways in order to support the group as a whole.
The players, collectively known as "The Council" must work together, fending off the interference of the people and places in Arkham, to complete the ritual to summon a Great Old One, before time runs out. The players must balance buying new cards to upgrade their decks as well as using their cards to keep the forces of Arkham in check. In the end, the Council must face one, or more, powerful Arkham Leaders in a Final Stand as they attempt to finish their ritual, or else they will be set back, and time is always the enemy.
