Heyo,

I just picked up Arkham Horror after thinking about it for about 10 months. A local comic shop had a 1/2 off board games sale and this time I figured why not. I bought it mainly for solo play, and perhaps an occasional game day play.

How do you like it playing solo and approximately how long does a solo game take?

I like it solo...time wise depends on how you play it...I usually play with 2 or 3 investigators so technically it isn't "solo". The intensity level is the same as playing with more people but it does lack some of the interaction/laughs/groans you get playing with others.
I've never played solo Arkham, but the way I have enjoyed the game most has been by playing 2 investigators each player (usually 3 people x 2 investigators each).

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Greetings,

Played a game of Food Fight with the boys and wife tonight. My wife won. Still a learning process with some of the cards but it went pretty quick tonight. I'd say about 25 minutes for a 4 player game. Not bad at all. One of the boys pulled off a Waffle and Chicken combo and thought that was the greatest thing since sliced bread(yeah, yeah, it's a food reference but hey, the game is Food Fight!)

I also played 2 games of Legend of Drizzt. Solo, Adventure 1 and lost both times, mainly because I wasn't paying attention to my experience points to use to cancel encounters, and my other abilities. Next time I play I think it will go pretty easy using Drizzt. He's a pretty powerful character.

Drizzt is a power house! I don't think any of the other characters even comes close.

SEE YOU @ GEN CON 2014!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

That's the one thing I really dislike about Legend of Drizzt. Making him that powerful is very immature. In fact, all of the characters in the game seem more powerful than Wrath of Ashardalon and Castle Ravenloft. Each character in Drizzt gets two Utility powers instead of one, and the Drow can take additional Drow utilites.

I really hate the whole D&D Drow thing. They are supposed to be the "most awesomely awesomest of awesome," or some crap like that. I feel like I am dealing with 14-year-olds.

I also dislike that there are no level 6 Villains in Drizzt. Both of the other games have two level 6 Villains, and a slew of level 5 villains. This game just has level 5 Villains - even the Humongous Demon!

However, what I do like about Drizzt:
1) The new tiles, such as the narrow passages that cause -4 AC to monsters and Heroes.
2) The monsters with more than 2hp and worth 4 experience.
3) The treasure chests.
4) The corner tiles that close off the caverns.
5) The water elementals!
6) The competitive scenarios and team scenarios.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Today -

Fairy Tale - Just a great filler game. I really enjoy it's simplicity but depth.

Wrath of Ravenloft (Yes I did that on purpose. We combine them) - Played with my 7 and 3 year old daughters. Long story short - we had burned both our healing surges and my oldest and I were w/in 2 hps of death when my 3 year old starting rolling 20s like they were going out of style. She single handedly killed 4 monsters on her last turn to secure the win with 3 20s and an 18.

SW Minis - Chewbacca "who's your daddy" Wookie just owned everything the poor emperor threw at him.

I'm hoping to get a game or 2 of Hinterlands in with the wife tonight since we just got it today.

Dragon Dice - (the 2nd best game there is) Learn to Play!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Greetings,

Well for the *third* night in a row we had gaming going on at the Raider household. Tonight's choice was Survive! One I really like, but that we haven't played in a long, long time. We got it set up and off we went. Just using the regular Survive! game, no dolphins or squids.

The boys had a blast double crossing each other(don't eat me and I won't eat you...oh wait yes I will!), and dropping me into the water. But ultimately it was my wife who pulled out the victory. She had 3 people make it to safety and won with 10 points. I came in next at 7 and the boys tied at 4.

We use a house rule where we do not look at the point value of the people before placing them. This way if someone's high point person is killed they don't lose too much interest. It's always a surprise at the end to see who wins. It's a shocker when a person with only 1 survivor ends up beating someone who has 2 or even 3. But it also keeps the game interesting.

- Raider30

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Lost the last solo game of Arkham Horror...things looked good for awhile and then the dice betrayed me. Just reset the board for another game...this time going to try it with Michael McGlen, Bob Jenkins and Mandy Thompson vs Cthulu. Wish me luck.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played a few games of Yali and a couple games of Khet.

I won at Yali each time but only by one move in one of the games.

I won the first game of Khet and lost the second due to getting too excited about my one-move-from-victory position to notice that my wife also had a one-move-from-victory position and she got to go first. She gloated over that one for sure.

Oh well, happy wife, happy life. Now, off to bed with a happy wife.

They're really not. They were originally just supposed to be a monster class until Drizz't, who banked on the whole anti-hero appeal. Basically drawing in the whole "I'm dark and broody but a precious snowflake deep down" crowd that makes vampires the stock hero these days. Then, aw never mind, this explains it as well as anything else can:

RISK LEGACY

I should say something else so I don't look like a bot. Such a fun game. I want to play it right now.
