(This was posted on the Yoteden back in the summer of 2013. Enjoy and if you think I should do something like this again, let me know!)
Over the July 4th holiday weekend, my family reserved an afternoon and evening and busted open our copy of Arkham Horror with 2 extra expansions. As an experiment, I started running a live-feed Twitter log of the gaming fun. The game ended up being a total grind and lasting 9 hours. The first tweet occurred at 2:28 PM and the final game win was announced at 11:22 PM. We had two extended breaks in there as we had to break to stretch our legs as well as dealing with our jealous puppy who did not understand why he could not play as well. I’m betting, when you figure in the breaks, it was only 6 hours of game time. Snacks were consumed, walks were taken and, in the end, Yog-Sothoth was held back from coming into our reality.
Below I present, in order from first to last, the twitter log that was generated. I enjoyed seeing it all together more than I thought I would and it really does work as a journal of the experience. I see places where I wish I would have added more and ways I’ll improve it should I do something similar in the future.
Anyway, I present it here for your reading enjoyment including the pics taken and posted as part of the log. I also removed the overly repetitive #SummerArkham hashtag I used to organize it all on Twitter.
