“Oh no! A monster appeared!”

February 24, 2009

This weekend I took my coughing, sniffeling self to Trondheim to visit Yvonne, one of my friends, and we had a blast!

She’s been trying to get me to join her and a few of her friends playing Arkham Horror for a while now.

Arkham Horror is a Fantasy boardgame based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

 Each player chooses a character, an Investigator, who explores the town of Arkham, trying to solve the horrible and mystical things happening there, getting attacked and sucked into other worlds on the way.

During each round, most players gets an Encounter-card which tells you what happens to their character, and there’s a huge possibility that…A MONSTER APPEARS! *giggles*

The monsters enter Arkham through gates, and to beat the game, you have to seal 6 gates or defeat the Ancient One(the main bad guy).

The game is kind of complicated to explain, but it’s actualy quite simple to learn, if you have kind and patient teachers* smiles and waves at her three co-players *

    It’s loads of fun! If I end up buying it, I’ll try to teach you. Oh, by the way, the photo is of the game WITHOUT the expansion sets. The game board becomes even bigger!

    It’s huge, dude! just wait till we -well someone- get more expansions packs, we need more than the table we used. Four times we played, insane!! Oh those great times when not just a monster appeared but “A hideous monster appeared!”, or “A nightmarish monster appeared!” ….
