Tried Arkham Horror

Today I played the board game Arkham Horror for the first time.  I think I passed my Sanity check.

What fun!  The game is both cooperative and narrative.  I do not know any other board games where players work together and the sense of progress so much seems like interesting plot and character development.  (If you know of others, please let me know.)

Of games I have played, two are close.  Lord of the Rings is cooperative but not very narrative.  Talisman is narrative but not cooperative.

My wife and I are still enjoying Dominion, so I will not be purchasing a copy.  Maybe it will be a nice birthday present later in the year.
