|Arkham Horror | Published 04 June 2009|
Fully three-quarters of the men and boys of Dunwich were trooping over the roads and meadows between the newmade Whateley ruins and Cold Spring Glen, examining in horror the vast, monstrous prints, the maimed Bishop cattle, the strange, noisome wreck of the farmhouse, and the bruised, matted vegetation of the fields and roadside. Whatever had burst loose upon the world had assuredly gone down into the great sinister ravine; for all the trees on the banks were bent and broken, and a great avenue had been gouged in the precipice-hanging underbrush. It was as though a house, launched by an avalanche, had slid down through the tangled growths of the almost vertical slope. From below no sound came, but only a distant, undefinable foetor; and it is not to be wondered at that the men preferred to stay on the edge and argue, rather than descend and beard the unknown Cyclopean horror in its lair. Three dogs that were with the party had barked furiously at first, but seemed cowed and reluctant when near the glen.
The hordes of undead and the terrible quakes have subsided. The town of Arkham has quieted to a dull roar. The citizens are getting back to their daily routines and Wilbur Whateley is rebuilding his shed. Terror has haunted the town of Dunwich for a long time, and now it is beginning to spread. The Dunwich Horror finds a new home, and your team must find a way to stop it. Take on both Father and Son in Chapter 9 of the Arkham League!
Arkham Horror is a boardgame of mystery and madness set in Arkham in the 1920's. Players investigate the strange happenings about the town, and race to prevent ancient evil from surfacing. Playable with 1-8 players.

Not that hard of an actual scenario. Give Calvin to a spellcaster and they basically get spells for free.
Victory by closing all gates is sure going to be difficult. Ouch!
Wow. Starting the Game with the Dunwich Horror in play ick! It almost screams for us to pick an investigator to sacrifice up in Dunwich to get rid of it. And just imagine if the DH and the first gate appear at the same location!
Spells are going to be harder to cast, but it does appear that when they succeed we'll get the point of sanity back. I'm also assuming this is true for the final battle as well. Here's hoping for a Sealed Victory.
