Arkham Horror (cooperative)

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.

    Dogs too comfortable to be moved, passage blocked. Punctuality in doubt. Tell my wife I'm an orangatang.

    Please note that they just put up signs about needing parking permits but they won't be enforcing them till March 1st so don't worry about it. I'll be handing out visitor parking permits after that point. Do be careful about speeding though. There is an automated speed trap on Good Luck Rd outside my road and today I saw an officer at the bottom of the hill on my street pointing a speed gun at descending cars.

      Thanks. Maybe we need to start thinking about a plan for shuttling from the high school.

      Thanks Cody! I only have the three tables but having a spare might not be a bad idea.

      If someone can bring a portable card table or whatnot, I'd be happy to open up a 4th table.
