To the...

This is a series of articles looking at the individual scenarios of Arkham Horror, starting with the Dunwich Legacy expansion. These will be my impressions after playing through the scenario at least once and will be focusing on the mechanics and how those reinforce the story elements of a given scenario. These articles will contain extensive spoilers and assume a familiarity with the terms and mechanics of the game. Please do not read on if you have not played the scenario in the title yet.

Like the previous museum scenario, I can see the cracks in the design, but I still kind of love it because it doesn't feel like anything else two years later. No scenario before or since has had such a frantic pace, and the memory of flipping that first agenda for the first time and throwing out that last train car is awesome.

Of course, this cuts both ways. It was possible in a larger group to lose in the first mythos phase if the encounter draws were particularly unlucky (patched in the 'Return to The Dunwich Legacy' box), and playing this after buying the pack on release day was a mixed bag. It was a rush, but it was also a scenario that might legitimately last fewer than thirty minutes. You spent as much time building the encounter deck and breaking it down as it took to play it, and then you were waiting another four weeks for the next pack.

Good news for your interest in a hotel! A month ago Fantasy Flight announced that the next stand-alone scenario will be a murder mystery set in a hotel with ten different possible endings. There was a found-footage promo video and everything.

Yeah I am really looking forward to the hotel. I have a friend working on an infinite train scenario with some of the encounter cards out of Forgotten Age. The scenario will be called Snakes on a Train (boom tish).
