6 players; scenario2, chapter 1 success. 19 points.

Recommended Posts

  My group is new to Arkham, having played less then 10 games.  We managed 19 points in this scenario; I'm not sure how good (or mediocre) that is, please let me know :)

  The key to us winning ended up being the encounter in the science building involving the dimensional transporter machine.  Through the course of the game, it closed 3 gates (of the 10) for us.  Not getting the gate trophey was a bummer, but the moral boost was good.

  We also gave the ally to harvey, and he was great at killing monsters... until we got stuck with the environment that prevents spellcasting for a few turns. 

  We also got the rumor "good work undone" which in this scenario was a good one to block the rumor slot for a few turns until it popped. 

 The -3 horror rating all monsters had prevented us from keeping the monster population low, resulting in the terror track reaching 7 before the last gate was closed.  The terror track hurt our score more then anything else. 

  The game did come down to the wire as far as the GOO waking up, the doom track was at 11 (of 12) when the tenth gate closed (with 2 or 3 remaining open on the board.) 

 

  Over all it was a good scenario, we may try another run at this chapter next game night.

Cool way to win it with that Science Building encounter!  I think missing out on those gates may have hurt your score some, but that is a very clever way to win the scenario.  Did you send a few people to the science people to do some extra research, or was it just luck of the draw?

You can never get that encounter when you really need it!

I consider any win in these league games as good going, and a score in the double figures as reasonable.

Or else you might go a little insane....

We just had one investigator on the science building,  The doctor.  The Misatonic Streets ended up with three or so monsters that blocked entrance/exit of the building.   We tried to send Joe diamond there too... but the monsters there were too evasive, and the -3 horror check was brutal for him.
