Miskatonic U. Presents: Arkham Horror and Other Strange Aeons

  • August 31, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • The Blue House Krueger

The hallowed halls of Miskatonic University hold many dark secrets and on the last Saturday of every month, things get just a little darker.  The Great Old Ones peer through the veil from Another Dimension, seeking 5 hapless victims to lure into Other Worlds with strange-sounding names such as Lost Carcosa and R'lyeh.  Hounds of Tindalos, Cultists and Shoggoths are commonplace, and only the keenest of minds will escape with a shred of their sanity still intact. Do you have what it takes to fight these horrors and keep the Ancient Ones at bay?  Will you survive all of the gruesome wonders that Arkham holds, or will you find yourself forever Lost in Time and Space?  Have your wits about you, read those magical tomes and ready your best weapon; the time has come again to do battle and prevent this evil from taking hold of your body, mind and soul.  Cthulhu himself whispers your name...  Will you heed his call?

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!  PLEASE READ!!!

I have to work on the 31st, so sadly I won't be able to host.  Luckily, the ORIGINAL host of this Meet-Up (and my Supah-Soul Sistah) STEPHANIE TK has agreed to move the party to HER house.  I'm sad I won't be there, because this seems like a an awesome group, but you're in great hands!  (Insert innuendo [or something] here - That's what HE said!!!).  Have fun, and I'll see you next month in Arkham!

Cheers,

Randal

IMPORTANT UPDATE PART DEUX!!!  PLEASE READ!!!

As it turns out, I don't have to work after all; Steph and I will be co-hosting the event, but we haven't quite decided whether we'll keep it at her place or move it BACK to Cloud Cap.  If we DO play at Cloud Cap, James will give us each a 20% discount on ONE ITEM, so leave a message here if you have a preference.

Thanks!

Randal and Steph

    I am sorry to have to do this, especially since its the day of, but i am going to have to cancel. :( one of our dogs is really sick, so we are taking him to the vet. Hopefully it's not serious, but last time this happened it took a WHILE to get him better. If there is any parasite that I can truly hate, it's whip worm. Again, I'm sorry. Enjoy the game, and take down some cultists for me :).

    Me, too! It's been a WHILE since we've played Arkham Horror! And I think the mix of expansions and cards we're using will be really fun.

    So did you guys settle on a location for the event? Just wondering so I don't drive clear across Portland looking for the wrong place. Remember I am new to this area lol.

      No worries Paul; we'll hammer it out before the day of. I still have to chat with James at Cloud Cap to see if the space is still available, then Steph and I will talk it over and we'll post it here well before the Meetup starts. Looking forward to seeing you! Cheers.

    Oh, and unless I post differently, we'll be using two expansions - Black Goat of the Woods and Lurker at the Threshold - as well as a couple of random mechanics from a couple other expansions.

    It's not me, it's the job, I swear! My boss said not to count on having it off because everyone and their cousin was going to Burning Man, so I didn't, and then he didn't schedule me anyway! Go figure...

    I have the game as well if you want to add another instance of it so that others can come. Just let me know. :)

      I appreciate it Paul, but Cloud Cap is small and I have an agreement with the owner to run one game/table per month. If you'd like to set up your own Arkham Meetup sometime, you're highly encouraged to do so! The reason I cap it at 5 is a page taken from Stephanie's book; it just makes for a more manageable game.
