Yeah, wait until you get the "Blurred Vision" Injury... ;)

 

I think it's "Double Vision" (I guess you're referring to the one not allowing you to pick up clue tokens from the board, right?)

 

"Amnesia" is another one you wouldn't be so happy to draw...

I see what you mean. Both cards look nasty. But I guess it makes the selection of "cannon fodder" easier when someone has to go and attack the Dunwich Horror. :lol:

Exactly. Still, you have other ways to seal even when afflicted by these two.

 

Finally: the Horror. Don't be afraid of it, it's actually a lot easier that it seems. Just bless the happy winner of the competition "who's the butcher today", be sure he has some clues to spend and voilà, 10 dice are enough to do the job, and you gain a wonderful free item :)

Go with 13 dice, sorry (I was considering the number of dice you have to roll after deducting the modifier... before the modifier is applied, it's clearly 13)

Miskatonic has arrived. :)  Julia, I know you've previously warned me about the Miskatonic Mythos deck, but I assume it's ok to go ahead and shuffle in the new Dunwich Horror, Injury and Madness cards?

Happy you got the expansion! Congrats!

 

As for your question... Injuries and Madnesses from MH are *nasty*. I'd leave those out for now. As for the DH cards... not a great experience here... since I added Miskatonic, I think I had the Horror in play twice in 58 games... (and nope, I never read the cards out of play I believe it spoils the fun), so, I can't really give you an answer. My advice is: leave MH in the box. It'd be like re-discovering Arkham ex novo. But really it's up to you!

OK. Thanks for the advice Julia. :)

 

I've just been reading the Dunwich Horror Herald sheet. It looks even worse than the Black Goat of the Woods! :o

Julia,

 

     Did you actually write this?: "Finally: the Horror. Don't be afraid of it, it's actually a lot easier that it seems."

 

     You have a great sense of humor, my friend... :lol:

 

     Seriously, though...five successes does look worse than anything else you're up against in this game.

 

Cheers,

Joe

Having three 7-toughness cultists frozing the main board during Avi's League, forcing to end movement everytime you enter an adjacent location / stree area (that scenario, and another one where you have the DH roaming the streets of the main board as a fast stalker that cannot be removed from the game) was something that made me consider the "normal" DH nothing but a sweet pet to cuddle with in the cold winter evenings after a rough day...

 

Actually, I'm always somehow happy when the DH is in town. As said, it's no real biggie to kill, and it's a free ES (that for me reads -1 doomer & 1 free seal: enough for winning the game). If you have a couple of good weapons, some spare clues and a Blessing, it's worth the challenge. Clearly, sometimes you just get crushed

My dreams of using the time bomb on the DH have been dashed... DASHED I tell you.  :-)
