After reading cards, extracting data into spreadsheets, analysis, and several rounds of post processing, I’ve completed my summary analysis of the various Eldritch Horror encounters.
This information is geared at giving the reader an overview of what the most likely rewards, penalties, and skill tests are for given encounter type (Location, Expedition, Research, etc). Consider this to be a study guide or cheat sheet when it comes to playing Eldritch Horror. (Of course, there is a lot of data in the cards and this only begins to skim the surface of what can be learned; if you want a deeper dive then I highly recommend Julia’s “Math of Eldritch Horror”.)
The analysis is up on BGG as there is no file posting here:
- Encounter Statistics for just Eldritch Horror
- Encounter Statistics for Eldritch Horror and Forsaken Lore
If you are at all interested please download and and take a look; hopefully the information will be useful. Feedback is of course always welcome.
In gathering the data I observed some interesting trends which I’ll include in a followup post. But for this post I’ll just conclude by stating that if you are at all interested please take a look and hopefully the information will be useful. Feedback is of course always welcome.
