Some friends and I are going to be playing Arkham Horror this Friday. None of us has ever played before. What advice can you give to a bunch of first-timers?

By the sounds of it, it's a difficult game to pick up, especially if there aren't any veterans in the group. Are there common mistakes that beginners make, either in terms of rules or strategy? Are there any good introductory articles or videos on the net? We all have copies of the instructions and have been studying them (and at least a few of us are real rules lawyers, so we shouldn't be lazy on the prep front). Are there any little tricks or tips you have that will make the experience more fun? Should I read a particular Lovecraft story or two?
