I've been playing the base Arkham Horror game several times now. I have a question about the gate rules.
When a player enters the gate and is in the other dimension, can another player enter the same gate/dimension through the same gate token? What happens when a player is trapped in another dimension because another player closed all gates to that dimension?
Also, can the other players choose not to enter that gate while the player is in it and just wait on the gate space with extra clue tokens for when the explorer returns to Arkham? I've been doing that alot; we all send someone through the gate and collect clue tokens while she is in it. Then, we go to the gate token and just wait for them to return and we give them the tokens to seal. We are waiting on the actual gate token without going into the gate, so I was wondering if that is wrong and we should be sucked into the other dimension if we are on it. Also, we all try to close the gate in succession if the returned explorer doesn't succeed (even though we didn't go through the dimension with them).
