This is a repost from the original thread, but I saw this thread & thought it belonged here too.
Saturday night, twelve of us got together and played The Labyrinths of Lunacy, a special “Epic Multiplayer” scenario for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. The way it works is that three groups of four sit down near each other and play through the scenario in sync with each other: one round at a time. We were not allowed to talk to each other normally, except to indicate that we were done with the round.
Occasionally, the game gave us very limited opportunities to communicate, first by sending one of the other team notes, supplies and vital game assets, and then eventually sending a group representative into glowing portals to have group conversations amongst all three tables, and keep each other updated on our progress.
By the end it felt like we’d formed a giant supportive family, cheering for each other and laughing at each others’ mistakes.
When we finally won, after nearly five hours of play, we all cheered and clapped and even got some applause from groups around us!
We all decided we needed to take a group portrait to memorialize our victory.
