Despite Arkham Horror being a cooperative game, one of the glaring holes I noticed the first time I played was that it doesn't appear that multiple investigators can attack a single monster, and vice versa.

I've read the rules a couple of times, but wanted to make completely sure:

If two investigators are in the same space as a single monster, Investigator A has to either Evade the monster or pass a Horror check, then fight until they either win, flee or die. If Investigator A flees or dies, Investigator B has the same option to either Evade or pass a Horror check, and fight as normal. At no time can they somehow gang up together and add their Combat together against the monster, correct?

That is correct. With the exception of the Final Battle, all combat is one-on-one. Investigators cannot team up against monsters, and multiple monsters in a single location do not team up against an investigator.


Yep, as mentioned above, combat is one-on-one. Just wanted to add that there are rules for "team battles" at Arkham Investigations if you want to use them.


Interesting, I'll have to take a look at those, thanks! –  LittleBobbyTables Nov 17 '10 at 17:06
