GOO: Shudd-M'ell (232 minutes)

Herald: Tulzscha.

Institution: Bureau of Investigators.

Extra Boards: Dunwich.

Extra Features: Personal Stories, Thematic Starting Possessions, Relationships, Exhibit Items.

First Timers: Shudde-M'ell, Tulzscha.

Result: Win: sealed gates.

Number of players: 1

Investigators: Chosen. Joe, Mary, Keith Kate and Wendy.

Best Moments: Everything was fine, 90 minutes of game, three investigators passed their personal stories, Joe was a killing machine (11 monsters total at the end of the game), only one more gate to seal and the game would be over. Wendy was already on the second space of Yuggoth, the next thing would be to move to Arkham and use the Elder Sign to finish the game. But then, one single Mythos Card, removed a seal and sent EVERYONE to the Dreamlands with no corresponding gate!!!

Wait, there is more! Two more turns and the rumor The Terrible Experiment would unleash several monsters in the streets and the terror would reach 10 (currently 1).

I almost gave up, but then remember that this is Arkham Horror, maybe something could help me in my most desperate hour. And it happened in the last possible moment: Happy Days are Here Again! So, I failed the rumor because everyone was still Lost in Time and Space but the terror did not move!!! And since it is an Environment Mythos card, it remained in play till the end of the game, avoiding the raise of the Terror Level three more times due to monsters in excess at the Outskirts.

The victory was achieved when Wendy came back from Dreamlands (sweet, sweet irony) and sealed a gate at the Unvisited Island. Amazing play, it lasted almost 4 hours, but it was tense all the time. During the game, two seals and three doom tokens were removed and six locations were closed due to the rubble tokens, one more and the game would be over.

One of my most satisfying gaming experiences ever!

Fabio,

It's great to hear that you had such a wonderful experience. I can tell you that after more than seven years and nearly 150 plays, it's my #1 game (of among 50 or so on my shelves)!

Cheers,
Joe

My experience has always been whenever a really useful environment comes out, it almost always gets replaced the very next Mythos phase.

But of course, when it's a really BAD environment, THEN it sticks around until the end of the game (or something worse comes along to replace it)

Great game - lucky finish !

Kate Winthrop decided it was time at last to get out of the closet and in all the madness in Arkham no one noticed the sex change!

Welcome Keith!

One of the many reasons why I love this game, too! Oh, and also when the opposite happens and you're about to get back from an Other World with that investigator and seal the sixth gate on the next turn - I mean, surely you won't draw a double doom token Mythos card which causes the GOO to wake up just now? shake
