I love a huge variety of games, but my favorites have always been the kind where you strategically work together to defeat the board. Which is why Arkham Horror has always been my favorite. But it’s not only that, it’s that while you play it, it feels like a campaign and you feel like you’re playing through a story. My favorite line from playing it with friends will always be, “I didn’t become the sheriff to save people.” In games like Arkham Horror you probably won’t win but when you do (when that risky move pays off, a monster doesn’t spawn, when you’re desperate and you get that one thing you needed, whether it’s just getting all the gates sealed or you’ve landed that final punch to Cthulhu himself) everyone shares in that glorious moment.
