I remember at one point, openly praying to the “powers that be” for a kitten card
I remember that first game of Arkham Horror. It was at Origins, probably 2010. The game was scheduled for the first slot of the day. I ‘m an early riser and I was surprised to find that this game had a full table.
The game was a blast. I remember being baffled at the way, in a shuffled deck, each card could be worse than the one before it. The guy sitting next to me didn’t understand what he was getting into and got a little upset about the game conspiring against us. I remember at one point, openly praying to the “powers that be” for a kitten card. I couldn’t imagine what could be worse than we had already seen, and I knew that was a bad sign.
That demo game worked. I spent a lot of money on Arkham Horror at the con, and then struggled to find a way to pack it for the flight home. Now, I only get a chance to play a couple times every year, but it is always a good time.
This past weekend, as I was setting up all of the little pieces and cards around the board, I thought, “there must be an app for this.” And sure enough I found Arkham Horror Toolkit.
