Arkham Horror shipping!!!!!1!!onehundredandeleven!!!

Unbe-fucking-lievable. In the eighties I passed on a copy for sale at Adventureland in Bloomington, Illinois (back before that store started to really suck). In the early nineties the hope of getting a copy at the live auction was one of my primary impetuses for attending GenCon (alas, no copies came up that year). Now Fantasy Flight Games says the new version of the classic Chaosium boardgame will be in American stores by the first week of July. I wasn't even fully cognizant of the fact that FFG was publishing the new version. Last time I checked (which would be year or three ago, I guess) the Chaosium was still promising a redo 'soon'.
