Arkham Horror is the New 2D6.org Game Giveaway!

3 November 2011 20 Comments

 

Arkham Horror has been the standard of frightening cooperative gameplay for a fortnight. The Season of the dark has just begun, and as you hunker down to survive the coming months of cold nights you have something else to worry about. As the nocturnal chill invades your bones and freezes your breath in the night’s air you can’t stay sitting in your comfy chair by a warm fire. You know deep down that you must venture forth or something evil will happen to all of us. Are you strong enough to put a stop to what might be out there?

If you want to toss your hat in for a chance to win this classic scary game here is what you have to do!

First, you can enter the contest with this onetime entry after this article post.  If you’re wise enough you can get three more chances to win by answering mysterious clues that will appear in the forum section, but you must act fast for they will only be good for a short time before they vanish. You will have 24 hours to answer each clue before the forum will be locked forever.

The winner will be picked in the evening before the witching hour on November 30th. All additional entries not related to the clues will be terminated. Make sure you notify 2D6 within 48 hours of winning or your chances will be sacrificed and a new winner will be chosen for the season.

Here is what you have to do:

  1. Post on this article what scares you the most, and why you wouldn’t be afraid to play Arkham Horror!
  2. Register at Gamesalute.com and while you’re there check out the great game selections they have (Remember they are responsible for the giveaway).
  3. Remember to check back for three more chances in the forum (Knock on wood) to win if you can answer the Cryptic clues.
  4. Store lots of food and supplies and get ready for the adventure.

    well I guess a well timed nasty big old spider who pops out of no where is the thing that could scare me. On the bright side, how often does that happen? So, unless Arkham Horror can produce live, large spiders to jump out of the board, there is no way I would be anything but excited to play this game!

    I have an inherent fear of heights…it’s not so much being up in the air but the sturdiness of the structure on which I am perched. I can easily go to the observation deck of the Empire State Building without fear but standing on a ladder more that 6 feet up gives me the heebie jeebies. Since I have no plans on playing Arkham Horror on a window washers rig I should be just fine

    It has to be snakes. I wouldn’t be afraid of playing Arkham Horror, because I have my wife check the house nightly for snakes.

    What I’m most afraid of would have to be my own children. I have no idea how so many kids make it all the way to adulthood.

    Arkham Horror won’t scare be because my parents didn’t censor what movies I watched growing up. I was probably the only kid in my elementary school who had seen movies like Night of the living dead, Lifeforce, Hellraiser, Evil Dead and such.

    Falling off a rollercoaster. There are no rollercoasters in this game, right? I’d hate for my character to fall off one. The game won’t be delivered on a roller coaster, nor will I have to ride one to get it? Cool.

    Having an exam the next day without much preparation, and am still having nightmares after all these years!

    I don’t need to sit for an exam to play Arkham, do I? So why am I afraid?

    I would have to agree with Popsicola, b4 kids I was pretty fearless but now that I have kids all I do is worry about them, especially when I’m at work for the usual 10 hour day.

    I wouldn’t be afraid of playing Arkham Horror because I know Cthulu is my Biznatch!!

    I am terrified of little bunnies with huge fangs out to here!

    I fear not Arkham or its wimpy horrors because well the only thing scary is spending hours playing with 8 people and then all losing!!!!!!

    Um, honestly I’d have to say roaches. This one time back in my college dorm I picked up my bathroom tote and a big roach crawled onto my arm. I went a little nuts. They still give me the heebie geebies.

    What scares me the most is that I’m about to buy my first house and lock in 30 years of payments for the biggest loan I’ve ever taken out.
