Feb. 6: Playing Arkham Horror (x2)

by Saramerry99 February. 06, 2012 1450 views

Our favorite board game is a Lovecraftian horror game called Arkham Horror. What we like about it is that it's cooperative–the players win together or they lose together. There are no rules for an individual victory.

One of our friends in Michigan recently got a copy of the game, but doesn't really have anyone up there to play with–so we've had another friend over and played with Bill via Skype. It's actually a surprisingly effective way to do the game–Bill mirrors everything that happens on our board on his, so he sees what we're seeing, and we can talk and joke with each other as we play.

We played again on Monday evening and had a nice time.

This is the setup when we're playing. Bill's on the computer at the far end of the table. :D

To check the camera placement, we also took a webcam picture of ourselves–though somehow we missed getting Abner in it. Oops. So we had to reorient.

And at the end, Bill sat down with his 5 month old baby so we could see little Emily (who'd been in another room with mom all evening). Such a cutie. Next time I'll see if I can snag a shot of her from his feed. :D

Interesting game - never heard of it. We play cards. Poker to be exact. And dice...easy to store away!
This looks more like a hobby to me! It counts as your Feb. selfie too!
