Greetings fellow invesigators,
just last night I was wondering if we play with the expansions correctly. We have CotDP, KiY, LatT, DH and KH. We have all of the cards shuffled together, encounters, mythos, items, everything. Each game we decide if we want to add any other mechanic from any expansion. Which means sometimes we don't have mood e.g. for Injuries/Madness, so we don't use that decks at all and it basicaly rules out Rita to be chosen, because her Resilient would be useless. It also makes Jacquelines' Precognition even more useless (I never liked it much) with Mythos deck about 6cm high. The example with not playing Injuries/Madness also interfers in some encounters (I remember one in The Unnamable to draw Madness card), which then has to be drawn again, to be able to fully resolve it. Mythos cards with gates opening on places we don't have (we don't play with that board for example) have to be also skipped and so on and so on, you have the picture.
Now the question is, isn't there some limitation to cards used or something like that? For example "mix your Other World cards with expansions, but then use only 50 to keep the deck small"? Or something like "you can use item cards from all expansions, but only use encounter cards and Mythos cards from those you really play"? How do you guys play your expansions? Every time separating the cards at the end of your game and at the start of new one shuffling them back together?
