I don't think of myself as a dumb person, and I do have some gaming experience, but I find myself wondering if I will ever fully grasp AH. My progress in a game is painstakingly slow, with frequent interruptions to consult the rulebook and my flowchart. I'd like to get to the point that I feel confident and proficient at this, but I don't have the time to make a second career out of it, lol! I frequently find myself wondering if I should stop investing time and money into AH and just focus on EH, which I do feel I grasp well and enjoy.
Perhaps one of the problem I'm having is that I've purchased several expansions and have added their materials into my set. I'm thinking, though, that since I don't feel I have the base rules down 100 percent (or even 90 percent), I should avoid the expansions until I am on firmer ground. Does that make sense?
Assuming that I follow that course of action, should I remove all components (including mythos cards, other worlds cards, etc.), or just select out stuff like dark pact cards, etc. that are specific to the expansions? The mythos cards, unique and common items, spells, etc. that are added by the expansions are not expansion-specific, are they? (I haven't read them all, truth be told)
I have the following expansions: King in Yellow, Lurker, and Dark Pharaoh. I was thinking about buying Dunwich Horror, but maybe I should put that on hold, since I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed as it is.
Thanks for your input, anyone.
