Hi. New to the forums. Relatively new to AH in general, but it's become my favorite game to sit and play. ^^
This game can be downright brutal sometimes, though. I was wondering if anyone can share some of their truly unlucky games. Whether it was a horribly short game, or terrible rolls, or just those really fun games where all seems to be going well and it just so happens that the particular Great Old One you were up against decided to hammer down their authority in brutal fashion.
A lot of you on this site have hundreds of games under you and I think it'd be interesting to recount some of this game's potential to just kick you right in the pants.
A recent game that I played comes to mind. It lasted 4 turns. I was playing with Innsmouth with Hydra as the herald and there were 4 investigators. Started relatively smooth with a gate at the Witch House and people begun their preliminary strategies. The next gate opened at Devil Reef. I always hate it when a gate opens there so early, but this one really hammered that home. The next two mythos draws were also Devil Reef gates. Two monster surges, each time with at least 3 coming from Devil Reef making a total of at least 7 monsters there, almost all of them sharing similar dimentional symbol patterns. Obviously, you can guess what happened. Ghatanothoa awakens and destroys our thoroughly unprepared team of investigators with ease.
It's a pity that game was just before I started reporting them. It would have been a funny one to look back on.
