Seems like this has been a real crowd-pleaser so I'm scheduling it again...
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). http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/15987/arkham-horror
If someone else can commit to bringing another copy, I'll open up another table. The ideal number is 4-5 players so even if eight show, we could split it into two four player games if a second copy is available.
Including explanations for new players, I expect this to take about 4-5 hours.
