Arkham Horror (cooperative)

  • April 6, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Joe's House

This is a cooperative game in which you take the role of the various characters from the 20s and seek to save the town (and the world) from Ancient Evil, which is seeking to break through to our world. Basically you run around the town, visiting the town locations to gather up goodies, beat up monsters, and seal up the gates to other dimensions. Things are usually pretty desperate and the ambience of horror tends to be fun. The game mechanics are a little complicated but it's pretty straightforward once you pick it up (and since it's cooperative, your fellow players will be trying to help you out).

Having finally made my sanity roll, if we have more seven players, we'll split it up into two tables (since Rohit has lent us his copy).  Ideal would be 4-6 players per table.  Eight is just too many.  :P

I'd be happy to open up a third table if someone can commit to bringing another copy.

Including explanations for new players, I expect this to take about 5-6 hours.

    I am not sure if Rohits' copy is at your place Joe, so I found someone to bring another copy so we have 3.

    My husband said he would like to come - if he has no spot on the game is he welcome to come to the tutorial anyway?

      A spot opened up so I just modified your RSVP to include a guest. So the answer is yes!

    You know, everyone should check and make sure they're actually coming. If not, change your RSVP.

    Just sayin'.

    I may be a bit late. I'm taking an examination that morning and don't know exactly when I'll be done.

    Will there be a relative beginner's table? I've played before, but it's been a while.

      In a sense, it isn't really a complex game. There is simply a whoooole bunch of stuff involved.

      1 · March 18, 2013

    • Joseph

      Pretty much every game there's new folks getting introduced to the rules for the first time so don't worry about it.

    I can bring my copy of Arkham Horror along with the Kingsport Expansion.

    • Joseph

      Great, thanks!

      1 · March 13, 2013

  • Joe

    At this point, I'm about 50/50 for Jill and I making it, but if I do, I can bring the game with all expansions.

    • Joseph

      Cool! Thanks!

    We've never had a problem getting a third copy before but I shouldn't make any assumptions. I just closed off the RSVPs till there is some certainty. Thanks for pointing this out!

    1 · March 12, 2013

  • Joseph

    Nope. Do you have a copy you could commit to bringing? I shouldn't have set the RSVP limit at 18 without first making sure we actually have enough copies for everyone!
