Return of the King (in Yellow)

Just a quick post to say I'm back from my sojourn mostly in one piece. While away we managed to have two six player games of Arkham Horror, both victorious through different methods. Mainly what we did different this time was - shopping!

First up was Hastur, the King in Yellow who absolutely thrashed us last time we went against him since he woke up at maximum power (terror level 10). After gearing up this time one of our number got a spell that could summon the big bad before he's at full power , and that's exactly what we did. Combined with someone else's spell to remove one terror track token instantly Hastur didn't even last long enough to launch a second attack.

Defeated by discount deals. The shame.

Our next match was against Azathoth, who basically instantly wins by eating the world (no final combat) if he wakes up. We lucked out in being able to purchase two elder signs early and eventually won on both having more than 6 gate tokens collectively with no active gates on the board AND having 6 sealed locations at once. We shut him down good! 

I think the only ancient one we haven't yet played from the original pack is Cthulhu himself, so we'll have to challenge the tentacled one next time (still haven't won against some others though, I think Nyartlatholep and Shub-Niggurath). If you have no idea what I'm on abut, don't worry - the normal schedule of gaming posts will resume tomorrow. See you then!
