An oldie but a goodie, Tim and I were game explainers to Raymond, Chad and Elaine. We must have been too good teachers as the final places were:
1. Chad ($41,900)
2. Elaine ($39,700)
3. Raymons ($32,200)
4. Ernest ($30,000)
5. Tim ($24,600)

There were 5 brave adventures that dared to venture into Arkham. I can't remember which expansions we used, but I know it involved the one with rifts (that we muddled our way through), that we played with personal stories and that I had apparently a very broken character (the violinst).

In the end, Mark, Emily, Kris, myself and Aidden managed to defeat Yibb-Tstill(sp?), with Aidden managing to get devoured along the way to fulfil his personal story.

This was one of the quickest games of Arkham Horror we played, with us virtually ignoring the very atmospheric flavour text as we were getting to...

..this game, arguably the most popular and certainly one of the louder games at WABA (it was the most popular game last year, with 7 recorded plays (see http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/590307/waba-hotness-2010)).

This time, 6 survivors set out to find Earth (BSG+Pegasus+CFB+FF):
Kris: Starbuck (starting CAG)
Ernest: Ellen Tigh (starting President) (Final five)
Mark: Deed (cylon pre-sleeper)
Aidden: Helo
Emily: Cain (starting Admiral) (Final Five)
Richard: Cavil (Cylons win and 2 or less of Galactica damaged)

The astute amongst you will note that there was only 1 cylon, Exodus' mechanism at work here.

Despite Mark's eventual reveal and Richard's 'I'm helping you, no I'm not, but no, I really am, trust me', the humans managed a win with the following final resources:
Fuel: 1
Morale: 5
Food: 3
Pop: 4
