Hello! I wanted to share the game of Arkham I played last night. Four investigators set out to stop Hastur and we included the dark pharaoh expansion. Randomly chosen investigators were Ashcan, Jenny Barnes, Mandy Thompson, and Kate Winthrop. Highlights of the game. Turn four or five with four gates already open Ashcan was in another dimension and drew the encounter that allowed him to sacrifice himself, thus sealing the black cave. Re-rolled Jack Diamond so now we had a crack team. Turn seventeen, after the woods had been sealed, a gate opened there and the seal was broken. It was bad because we were about one turn away from closing all gates on the board. At this point we are at about 7 doom and 4 terror. Turn eighteen, Kate was devoured in Silver Twilight Lodge after being introduced to the Man in Black. Re-rolled Ashcan Pete, but then two turns later, got the encounter which allows a re-roll as a character of your choice; Dexter drake comes out. Still only about 7 doom and 6 terror at this point. Nearing the end (turn 28, 30?) we drew two mythos which just added 2 doom, and we ended up winning by closing all the gates on the board when Hastur was at 12 doom. one more and we would have been brutalized by his now -8 penalty from the terror track. The game was four hours long, but it was for sure one of the best I've ever played. Allowing gate bursts at the woods made it way more challenging, and I can't remember any games where my investigator was at 1 stamina and 1 sanity and I was still jumping desperately through open gates. If you read this, thanks for taking the time to do so! cheers

Thanks for sharing your report. Sounds like a very interesting game.

 

Personally, I would remove any devoured investigators from the game so you cant get them again, like Ashcan in your game. Adds a bit 'apocalypse-feeling' :)

+1 With the expansions there are enough investigators to get devoured. :P

Wow!  I laughed when you wrote "turn 28, 30?" ~ that's hysterical.  You were definitely fighting the good fight...that's an exceptionally long game.  It sounds as though you had great fun.

Thanks again for reading, I want to point out that this is all from memory but I vow to make game notes from now on so I can make the summary more precise.

cheers
