Arkham Horror: Tabletop Simulator
« on: August 29, 2018, 08:54:51 PM »
Hey everyone,

I just remembered an old game I have in the basement and felt like I should give it a try.

Would anyone be interested in a, maybe 4 people, Arkham Horror round on the TTS?

Base rules, + Dunwich

Cheers

Do you need TTS to play? 
I have Arkham Horror but not Dunwich in the box.

there seem to be only French modules for VASSAL, that's why I thought about TTS

...and since I bought it, I thought I should give it a try at some point.

Reading up on opinions on the expansions, I could pretty clearly see that a lot of AH player consider Dunwich as a must use expansion, hence base game + Dw

I don't have Tabletop Simulator - but I'm willing to buy it.

But buying Dunwich is a step farther than I'm willing to go since I've not played Arkham yet.

Oh, I think I understand you better now.

The Arkham Module for TTS is community made, including all expansions, hence, it is free.

That btw includes quite a few titles by gmt as well, in case you are into the wargaming side of things.

It's free (and probably illegal ;) ) once you buy TTS, to be specific.

However, since you both own the proper physical things already, it's fine.

Yes, as every VASSAL gamer knows there are at least 20 cease and desist orders involved per week per hour of playing  ;)
