What is it exactly?
Well, I finally poured through the rules and tried out a solo game of Arkham Horror. I played three investigators and played enough to have a vague idea of how the game flowed, though I didn't seal any gates. So, the $10,000,000 questions is - wha'd ya think? Well, I can see why the AZ group mostly hated it (I say mostly, because there were some who would play it). What did I see? Its not a game, its more like an activity - an interactive story. Yes, you do some stuff and your choices make some sort of difference. Sort of. As a solo game, this is probably ok, so I'll keep it. I'm not likely to pull it out otherwise - there are just too many other games I'd rather play. The game is very thematic, and has lots of flavor, but didn't feel like it'd be that great with more players. So, solo it is - no harm in that.
