Hey all--

 

    Played through my first game of Eldritch a few nights ago and, well, the Earth was devoured beyond my best efforts. But it was still fun!

 

   Anyway, just wondering if I'm missing something--but both Star Spawn and Dark Young showed up in my game, and I couldn't help but notice that they appear to have the exact same stats. Is that right?

 

   Is it a misprint? Or maybe there are other cards or mechanics that differentiate between the two monsters? I'm sure I'm missing something, since I've only played through once...

Yes, they are almost the same. There are a couple of other components that affect them in different ways, but I wouldn't want to spoil the specifics for you.

Dark Young are set aside in Shub Niggurath games, and will occasionally show up in them specifically.

...ah, that's what I figured. Thanks Pseudonym and Wolfgar for being gentle with the spoilers.

 

...and hey Julia! Yeah, after years of putting off getting a copy of Arkham Horror, I decided to jump on a deal to get Eldritch (since the consensus seems to be it has incorporated many improvements). Initial impressions are good.

 

   Rightly or wrongly, it reminds me a bit of a meatier (and much higher production value) version of Darkest Night, which is a game I like well enough--though I wonder how much of its structure is a tribute to Arkham Horror.

 

   Anyway, I'm likely to be a bit more active on the forums here--so hopefully I'll see you around!
