Recieved AH as a fathers day gift last weekend and have just got around to playing my first game.
Read the rules thismorning. I feared, from what I had read about the game, that it would be a bit of a chore but I found them pretty straightforward and relitavely easy to get my head around, quite a relief really.
I started a solo game using Joe Diamond and Mandy Thompson and we faced off against Yig. I had sealed 3 gates with 2 doom tokens left on the doom track so I decided to restore my stats and prepare for a fight!
We managed to beat Yig but it was close and we had some scary moments!
Really enjoyed the game and I can see why its so popular. I'll be buying A few expansions to add a bit of depth as soon as I can.

Any first game success with the brutality that is Arkham Horror deserves a thumbs up.

Joe and Mandy are probably the best combo to start with. Now try it with Sister Mary and Dexter Drake...

aka you won't know the true character of the game until you've been stomped into the ichor-soaked mud by it.
