Yes, I still love Arkham Horror. I love the fiddly bits, the pile of characters and Ancient Ones, and the tense atmosphere the game creates. This game is not for everyone, but it sure is for me.

My wife also loves Arkham Horror, which is almost too awesome for words. We used to play frequently, but once we had kids, the length of the game significantly decreased our ability to play. We still play, but only a couple of times during the year. It's now an event, instead of an evening. That's still great, but I like Arkham so much, that when we moved into a larger house three year ago where I had a room of my own to leave games setup in progress...

It began with: An Arkham Horror Solo Challenge: The Innsmouth Invasion.

Innsmouth did not fair well. The denizens of Kingsport became the next target.


The Challenge:
Defeat every Ancient One once. Each investigator can be played repeatedly over different games (chosen at random), but once an investigator is devoured, they are out of play. If an Ancient One wins, they are shuffled back into the pile of non-defeated Ancient Ones. I own the Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Kingsport big box expansions, which means I have a total of: Ancient Ones: 24 Investigators: 48.

The Setup:
Use the Arkham base game and the Kingsport Expansion. Play with 4 random investigators each game. Choose an Ancient One at random. Follow the splatterfest of rules as normal.

Will the Ancient Ones devour the brave investigators and yet another world? Or will the investigators push back and send the Ancient Ones back to the depths of slumber from whence they awaken. Only this challenge will tell...

I completed the challenge over the course of nine months, and kept notes of each game. I will add items when I have time until all completed games are listed.

Most Games Played: Urusula Downs: 7, Ashcan Pete (D), 7

The Play
Doom Track: 11 of 13, Terror Track: 1 Rifts: 0. Had just enough luck to win this convincingly. Started with too many doom tokens--kept opening gates in locations. Sigh. Couldn't get weapons. But didn't have any gates burst, and kept Kingsport in check. 1 Task completed, 2 personal agendas of 4 completed, none lost. 6 gates sealed. A good beginning.

The Play
Doom Track: 11 of 14, Terror Track: 1, Rifts: 0. So slow! 3 of 4 investigators only 3 speed. Azathoth was a good Ancient One for these slowpokes. Couldn't go anywhere quickly. Still, collected clues and killed over 20 monsters--so many monster surges. Found a way. No horrible luck. 2 personal goals completed, 2 failed. Good game. Much better start to this challenge.

The Play
Doom Track: 10 of 11, Terror Track: 7, Rifts: 2. 2 personal goals failed, one succeeded. The Mythos card "No One Can Help You" which does not allow gates to be sealed came up the turn before I was to seal 2 more gates and winning, stymieing the total at 4 sealed. I than had 11 more mythos cards, all Headlines. I could not seal gates. After 3 or 4 without it changing, I changed tactics to closing all the gates. I did have 2 Find Gate spells. A Kingsport Mythos Card unsealed 1 gate, Thankfully Marie took 1 doom token away. With more rifts nearly opened, the doom track 1 away, I had 3 investigators returning . Harvey sealed and closed his gate easily, Tony closed his gate with only 2 dice. Then Monterey Jack--4 dice roll, all fails, game over? Then I realized he had 1 more fight skill than I thought. 1 more roll... Success! Frustrating, yet satisfying. All characters had 5 clue tokens (max the Ancient One allows), also randomly drew an Elder Sign, to no avail. Worst timed Mythos Card ever. Yet still, this time, I prevailed. Barely.

The Play
Doom Track: 6 of 13, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 0. 2 personal goals compelted, 1 failed. Ghan allowed us to collect clue tokens one round, then on the first visage flip, Bob Jenkins saw Ghan and perished. He was replaced by Mandy Thompson who was devoured the very next time on the first visage flip. She hardly had only 2 turns. Tough victory. Can't believe I've now won twice by closing gates (only done once prior in 100+ games)--definitely due to the Kingsport expansion (makes it more likely). Very different game with this expansion. Liking it a lot. Norman did very well. Had lots of extra movement items which helped very much. Strong start to challenge.

The Play
Doom Track: 13 of 13, Terror Track: 7, Rifts: 2. 2 personal goals completed, 1 failed. All the decent luck until now ended. Talk about bad. Awful monsters on board. No weapons. Tried to buy weapons. No weapons. Got bank loans to buy weapons. No weapons. Got a rife, only to lose it to an Elder Thing. No Weapons. Best Weapon? A knife. No way to close gates--always opened at new locations. Even with 4-5 gates open, it would always open somewhere else. During battle, only took off 2 doom tokens using Shriveling and Wither. Painful game. Disappointing. However, after 4 quality wins, this was bound to happen. Onward.

Got a few weapons, and what a difference it made. Such a big difference from last game. Wendy Adams was awesome, closing and sealing 3 gates, and Diana sealed 2 and closed 3. Michael took care of many monsters in Arkham and Kinsport.

The Play
Doom Track: 5 of 13, Terror Track: 3, Rifts: 0. 1 personal goal completed, 3 failed. Early bad luck dashed several personal goals. Jacqueline had horrible luck with Quachil--first card in the first two decks discarded the rest. She spent lots of clue tokens to delay disaster in Kingsport, and a press pass helped immensely. The mythos card that does not allow gates to seal again came up, but thankfully another mythos altered it in 2 turns. A good confluence of events allowed a quick victory--ignoring Kingsport all 4 investigators went into other worlds with the ability to seal, and with some careful plotting, managed to emerge and seal their gates. Harvey was a beast with a Tommy Gun and Dread Curse. He killed 7 monsters. Press Passes are awesome. Somehow did very well with slow, slow, slow characters again! Carolyn, Harvey, and Ashcan all move 3 and no modifiers. Wow.

Not a single ally lost, even with the rumor card that forces you to kill an ally to prevent doom tokens on a roll of 1 or 2. Agnes was awesome sealing gates. Kept monsters and Kingsport in check. One of these days, I would like to get to House in the Mist.

Shudde M'ell

The Play
Doom Track: 9 of 12, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 0. 0 personal goals completed, 2 failed. Vincent was pathetic most of the game, 2 madness and 1 injury card, but then he came on strong, sealing the final two gates. Victory was within reach earlier, when Ashcan failed his roll to close the gate from the Underworld. Then a mythos card with a gate burst was drawn, which caused the Unnameable to unseal. Suddenly I had no clue tokens and needed a final gate sealed! Went shopping at the curiosity shop several times and found an Elder Sign, which Vincent used quickly with his Find Gate. Ashcan Pete, until he couldn't seal the gate, had been a beast, closing and sealing 3 gates, killing lots of monsters--he had a motorcycle. Yet another game of slowpokes, 3 speed for 3 characters, yet still found a way to win. Mark became the deputy. Shudde M'ell destroyed the Newspaper, South Church, and the Bank. Completed a Task! Had a rumor that caused 1 ally to be returned every mythos. When finally won, had 10 allies discarded. Next turn, the rumor would have gone into affect. Interestingly, Vincent tried twice to use his 5 clue tokens to complete the rumor, but failed due to monsters destroying him both times--this would have also completed his personal task. Was able to manage Kingsport, but could have had a rift open the last few turns easily.

The Play
Doom Track: 13 of 13, Terror Track: 2, Rifts: 0. 0 personal goals completed, 1 failed. Pulled Atlach again. Immediately started off badly, pulled two Kingsport Horror Mythos cards that did not open a single gate. Couldn't get in gates--monsters kept destroying my characters. Or if I did in the gates, had 2 characters lost in time and space and one moved to the House in the Mist right before closing a gate. Went to the shops to get weapons and got nothing--6 times at least. Was hoping to get some allies. Couldn't kill monsters, couldn't close gates. Two rumors, one failed, losing all clue tokens, the other passed by spending two gate trophies. Even used a favorable Herald: Nodens, but didn't use his abilities once! Couldn't get enough of anything to even get a blessing. Just awful.

No monsters ever appeared, so Nyogtha never used his tendril. All characters were very good in this game. Still 2 of 4 were slow. Lola became deputy and gave her patrol wagon to Ashcan who road around the board. Completed 1 rumor. Marie had 7 spells, all acquired herself! Good game.

Never felt stressed, but doom tokens kept getting added, and it started to get close. Was able to seal all gates on first roll. Killed lots of monsters, but had a rumor card that forced us to turn them in. Completed 2 rumor cards--ugh. Still, another victory. This challenge is going far better than the Innsmouth Challenge.

The Play
Doom Track: 11 of 11, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 0. 3 personal goals completed, 1 failed. Kept having to enter gates without being able to seal them, or got thrown out of several gates. For the first time ever, got the White Ship, which was very useful. Then a Kingsport Mythos added 2 doom tokens and Abhoth awoke. I had been prepping by acquiring weapons, but had hoped to get some blessings or allies. Still, was in decent shape.... But: Woah. Thought I'd have no problem deafeating Abhoth. Had lots of items, and an item that allowed us to skip one Ancient One attack round. Yet it came down to Darrell's final roll. Roll 2 successes (no blessing) with nine dice (easy right) and the characters wins. Fail, and 3 of 4 investigators would be devoured next turn. The roll? Only 2 successes. No investigators devoured! Phew.

Doom Track: 12 of 12, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 1. 1 personal goal completeed. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Frustrating game. Was doing just fine, but in the five items drawn, three were tomes. Kingsport Rift card added a rift. Pulled 3 rumors, lost 1, completed 1, and the last one added the final 2 doom tokens. 2 mythos cards added 4 doom tokens. Then in battle, just got less that average rolls and didn't even come close. Only6 of 12 tokens removed. So sad to see these characters go.

The Play
Doom Track: 9 of 13, Terror Track: 2, Rifts: 1. 3 personal goals completed, 1 failed. Lots of monster surges and gates not opening due to Elder Signs. Had lots of time to stop Cthulhu. Had to wait for gates to open. Rolling in clue tokens. Kept losing weapons, but managed to still kill lots of monsters with what I had. Well played.

Hastur

The Play
Doom Track: 13 of 13, Terror Track: 3, Rifts: 0. 2 personal goals completed, 1 failed. This was one of those Arkham games that display how frustrating and long-winded this game can be. With 4 gates sealed and working on getting clue tokens or an Elder Sign, gate after gate burst (3 total burst). Suddenly only 2 were sealed. Then 3 again. With this Ancient One, sealing gates was so hard and every burst was a dagger. With 12 of 13 doom tokens, I was deciding between letting Hastur awaken or taking doom tokens off. I could have taken 4 tokens off, but only did 2. Then another Gate Burst! Ugh. I also lost most of my weapons when a Kingport card made me discard my highest valued item with a failed Luck Roll. Also had 2 rumors cards, 1 failed, one almost failed when Hastur awoke. Then the 7th gate opened, and I was relieved! Still, with careful planning, 2 blessings, and enough magical weapons and spells, Hastur was easily defeated in battle. Vincent, who is usually one of the poorer characters has twice been First Citizen. Huh.

Lots of monster surges and tough monsters on the board. Tommy finished with 6 monster trophies (spent 2 to get the deputy). Finn finished with: 15! Sister Mary had 8 and Diana had 2. That's 31 unspent trophies! Finn also finished with 18 dollars and a Retainer. Didn't get a single Weather Mythos Card. Also completed the Terrible Experiment Rumor Card. Good Game.

Doom Track: 10 of 10, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 1. 0 personal goals completed, 0 failed. Wow. Horrible character draw for Yig. 3 of 4 characters were deathly slow, only 3 speed. Planned very well, got weapons, lots of weapons, got blessings, but luck was not on our side. Had 2 blessings, lost them. The George drew an Ohter World card that forced him to be cursed. Then monsters infested the board and prevented characters from going anywhere quickly. Kept getting poor rolls and failing. Then George was lost and time and space, while cursed, and of course, Yig awoke that turn. 1 turn delay, and George would have lived, with a shotgun! Did well first two turns, then the dice rolls failed miserably. Even had a card to cancel an Ancient One attack one turn. Then needed 6 hits over 2 rounds with 30 dice. Got 2. Awful. And Devoured. Rest in Peace.

Would have won even sooner if Diana hadn't failed he monster evade roll 3 times. Nice win after a crushing defeat. Completed the Mineralogy Report Task. Got 2 Elder Signs super early, but Chaugnar's ability didn't hurt me.

The Play
Doom Track: 7 of 12, Terror Track: 2, Rifts: 1. 1 personal goal completed, 0 failed. Patrice's ability allowed for the rapid sealing of 3 gates. Would have won by closing all gates and having 4 trophies, but the mythos opened another gate. Then, would have won sooner again if the mythos card hadn't unsealed the Black Cave. Still, quick victory. Very cohesive group of investigators. Only moving 3 spaces a turn didn't hinder us. Monsters were infesting the board, and gates hadn't had the right symbol to assist upon closure, plus bad mythos draw allowed a rift to open. Surprised, yet not surprised, that the group did so well. Interesting mix.

Marie removed 2 because of her personal goal success! Wilson removed one with the EltDown Shards, and Ursula removed 1 with the Mission: Sacrifice To Make. Not a single Elder Sign! Marie finished with 16 items (7 spells). Cleared 2 rumors and then pulled a third at the very end. Everyone helped out. Very glad to do away with this Ancient One.

The Play
Doom Track: 11 of 11, Terror Track: 1, Rifts: 1. 0 personal goals completed, 4 failed. Where last game went perfectly well and we removed doom tokens, this game put them onto the track. Nothing removed them. Rolled doubles twice, for 2 additional mythos card. When closing gates, got lost in time in space or couldn't close the gate. Only sealed 1 and the doom track was at 7. Was trying to bulk up for a battle, where I had a chance--but the seventh gate opened a turn too early, and I lost a chance to get 2 more blessings. In addition, spent lots of time and money at the stores for no weapons. Kept getting crap. If I had drawn better and had another turn, I bet it would have been close. I defeated Zhar once, then only got 2 tokens of the twin. Sad to see these investigators be devoured, but this one was pretty clear early on how it would turn out.

The Play
Doom Track: 10 of 10, Terror Track: 0, Rifts: 2. 0 personal goals completed, 1 failed. Planned for Yig to awaken from the beginning. Managed to seal 2 gates and had clue tokens to seal a 3rd. Bought lots of weapons (when they came up in the items) and got blessings for all 4 characters. Rita and Darrell had retainers that they never lost. But I sent both into a gate to manage them, which they closed, but the next turn Rita got sucked back in the same location gate after closing from a mythos game, and Darrell also got sucked into a gate from a location. Each had about $15 unspent because I couldn't get to a location to buy! Caught a break with the last mythos environment which allowed Dexter to cast spells (2 shrivellings) without spending sanity. Still, should have had so many more weapons. Urusula lost all her items and weapons 2 turns into the game in Ryleh. All said and done, good victory.

We were able to keep the hordes of monstes in check. Got rid of 1 Being of Ib, and the -1 to Horror checks was the difficult avenue in this game. Rifts and Kingsport were a nonfactor this game. Only 5 Great Old Ones remaining to defeat.

The Play
Doom Track: 12 of 12, Terror Track: 1, Rifts: 0. 0 personal goals completed, 1 failed. This game lasted 7 turns before Y'golonac woke up. 7 turns! In that time 3 of the mythos cards were rumors, but at least since 1 was in play, the other two did not take affect. The rumor in play: Cover-Up required discarding monster trophies. As it was the second turn of the game, there were none in possession. We held it off for a few rounds, and managed to seal 3 gates, but then the rumor took affect, and Lola had to discard 8 clue tokens, though there were none remaining on the board. We had no magical weapons, and took a chance of getting some from the Curiosity Shoppe--and over 2 turns, drew 4 tomes, adding 4 more doom tokens (bad luck). So we planned to battle Y'golonac, and prepped well. Several magical weapons, several spells, and all had blessings! But luck was not with the dice. No clue tokens (due to the rumor). Spells kept failing. 8 dice attacks with blessings would result in 2 hits. Good-bye Joe, Rita, Finn, and Lola.
