The Arkham Horror virginity, I mean. (I wrote about this shameful thing in my blog in February)
This was actually quite unexpected, but let me tell you how it happened.
Maybe a week ago I was browsing online this Finnish equivalent of ebay, and in the game section I happend to notice someone selling AH for a pretty low price. At first I thought it had to be in a bad shape for that price. I clicked on the item and noticed it was paired with a small AH expansion. And in good conditions too.
I started thinking that with that price(40€) I couldn't even get the base game here. So, we discussed the matter with my fiancé, and decided to bid for it. It took us only two days to get it, and then the reading started.
I had prepared myself to what was coming, but when I started reading the rules I was surprised. It wasn't that hard to understand, that I had thought it would be. The second time I read the rulebook I made some notes, 'cause the main thing is, there are so much to remember.
So, one evening this week we and my friend Hanna got together for some cthulhu banishing.
Unfortunately our time schedule went a bit wrong, so I knew from the beginning that we wouldn't have time to finish it. My fiancé had an really early morning the next day.
But, we managed to play the game with only one rules error( in the first two turns), I'd say thanks to my notes. Everybody felt that there was a lot to learn, but not impossible at all. I felt it had similarities with A Touch of Evil: The Supernatural Game , which we love, so maybe that's why it wasn't so hard. Well, we were still getting our butts kicked
I really don't have anything else to write about. It's been quite quiet here lately. We didn't do our monthly game shopping spree last month, and I don't think we'll do it this month either. But that's good. We have plenty of games to play.
I think I'll concentrate to my project of storing solutions for components. I'm going to a arts & crafts store today to see if they have any good storing units. Something like plano boxes but maybe different. we'll see. I'm also thinking about doing a new insert for ATOE, because the original can hardly hold the components.
Oh, I did get some plastic-jewel-like hearts for AH as stamina tokens. Now, searching for brains. Mini pimping?
