For me, my team's victory the other day in Arkham Horror made me realize how insane this game can truly be.
Long story short, we followed all rules for setup, and I randomly drew Michael for my investigator, something I can say I was pretty excited about. Our AO sadly was not Shub but rather good old Yog. All expansions except Miskatonic were in play, including all boards. In total we had 6 investigators, a pretty solid group and enough people to handle all situations that may arise. My random Unique Item was a bust however, as I was dealt a Crystal of the Elder Things. Not my best.
Game starts, nothing too exciting happening. I as Michael took care of monsters promptly as my ally traded me a Gladius of Carcosa early on, my Tommy Gun dealing with the rest. Most of the gate openings occurred on the main board, and we gathered clues and did what we needed to do. I entered a few gates to close some gates in case he did wake up, grabbing 2 total in the process. And then the fun happened…
Mythos comes up as the Rumor: The Terrible Experiment. I of course as Michael ended up dealing with that quite promptly as my PS gave me some extra Sanity, and I ended up at the end of the experiment collecting a total of 11 monster trophies (this of course including early game ones). And then it happened. I had an encounter coming near the end of the game and drew the spell "Call Ancient One." And then I started to think to myself…
With the way we were standing, there was very little chance we could survive the final fight. 4 seals on the board was nice, but with the end coming close and not many gate trophies (let alone very low average for Will values), I decided to cast the spell.
I spent my 2 gates, and 11 monsters, used my Crystal of the Elder Things to avoid losing 13 Sanity, and used my 3 clues to cast the spell. On the 2nd clue, I rolled a 6. Ding dong, 13 doom tokens gone on Yog and game over. Glorious.
Anyways, to spur more of the conversation, what is one of your guys' most epic wins?
